This was fun to see, but definitely not something to write home about. We loved the back drive into the club, loved seeing the landscapes, loved going out to stomp the divets but it wasn’t a wow experience for us. The food was dreadful. However,...More

Had a really great time, right on top of the action, seated in the L section. Easy to follow, Mccray's Seafood II Food Truck was fantastic. Beverage lines were not long, very easy to park. Just a lot of fun, very enjoyable late afternoon.

I would go more often if I lived nearby, but I wouldn't miss the annual match between US and Italy! It is so much fun, and the Pavilion offers great a great view with inexpensive cocktails while you enjoy the game.

Family enjoyed visiting and seeing a game, We participated in Queeche Vermont polo but have long since sold the ponies as we advanced to retirement age. This association has a first rate facility. Well worth a summer visit. Very enjoyable for all ages
