Sounds like a great course. I wish I was still young enough to do things like this. I certainly meet all of the qualifications. Good luck to everyone who joins!

what a great idea for kids to be able to play golf in such a great environment as this. I so wish that i had the opportunity to do the same thing.

Looks like a wonderful internship opportunity for the right person. I will have to remind my nephew about this next year.
