Just measures absent we found Hale’s Site Golfing Program. Owned by the property affiliation that the resort is positioned amid, it’s 9 holes of exciting problem, some forgiving slopes and completely amazing views.

On one particular gap, a dangle glider swooped down from the ledge just around our heads.
