The OUTPOST offers tantalizing and diverse menu options and live entertainment at an elegant indoor bar and dining room. When the weather is ideal, opt for our seasonal outdoor bar and patio dining overlooking our pristine 18th Green. If you want to unwind in between your golf play, stop for a snack or refreshments at our Halfway House located after the 9th hole, then continue your game when you’re ready.
Lounge By The Pool
If you enjoy aquatic activities, swimming in our 25-meter, a full-size swimming pool might sound like a great way to relax and unwind. You can also sit and lounge at poolside under a shaded table and enjoy a treat from snack shack run by Delicious Heights. Our friendly and helpful staff members make sure you have everything you might need. If you’re still keyed up and want a little more activity, strike up a game of table tennis with one of the other club members or join a game on the basketball court.
