Great stop in AC
ACCC was one of my most enjoyable rounds this year. The front nine was nearly empty when we teed off late on a Friday morning and the weather was perfect. From that starting point, the course conditions did not disappoint. We found immaculate fairways and consistent greens which were quick, but allowed for aggressive lines if not putting directly downhill.
A great mix of playable and challenging holes makes it worthwhile for all skill levels. Expect a good deal of wind on holes near the bay, particularly 14 - 17. From the back tee, the par three 15th hole played directly into the wind and well over 200 yards. In those conditions, consider playing short and left rather than taking on the forced carry. Or risk carding a 6.
I opted for the latter, which was relived in the locker room and Taproom after the round. Make stops in both during your visit. They are replete with club history and staffed by a team eager to assist.
The rates are more expensive than other options in the area, but the experience is worth it. There is some variance depending on time of day and month of play. If your plans are flexible, you can find a discount.

Great track...fair but challenging...
If you like links golf this is a gem...We had a 12 guys go down to play the weather was terrible...raining the entire round, every guy loved the course...!
It is one of my top 5 courses I have ever played, and I have played Kohler, Pinehurst, St. Andrews, etc...
