PAST GUEST TESTIMONIALS

“Rearrange your bucket list and put this on top! This was my fourth trip to WCFC… and it was truly just like coming home. We enjoyed the David Hawksworth & Friends Culinary Adventure this trip, and I must say that did add another dimension to the overall experience.

The accommodations at The Clubhouse are better than ever, with a few nice additions, like the wood-fired pizza oven. The food and wine, which are always first rate, were better than ever too…”
