Thanks, everyone! Lots to think about.
That place sounds great, rusty! But I'm afraid you lost me at "dry". (I grew up Baptist. Nice people, good potlucks, not a lot of fun at parties.)

Basically, I'm trying to find something that will accommodate a large-ish group of guys for a weekend and that will require minimum driving other than the drive from the airport to the course.   The handful of courses I've found are all resorts, most of which are...
