Fodor's Review

This secluded hotel and conference center that appeals to golfers has a historic, rather than hokey, Western feel, with vistas of open prairie and an elongated bar reminiscent of a Tombstone saloon. Some rooms continue the theme with cowhide headboards, tepee bed canopies, or whimsical bordello furnishings. Most guests come for excellent golf, splendid views, and privacy.

I ate at the restaurant on 9/4/07. The "food" was pathetic. Orange juice was colored water. Bacon seemed like it was cooked the day before. FROZEN pasteries. Everything is frozen hospital style food. Nothing fresh.

Great Sales Meeting Destination

We bought out the resort with 170 rooms and had the best ever sales meeting. No other people around and we had run of the house. Great staff and food!!
