          for this type of golf for themselves. Unfortunately dogs are not allowed on the shooting grounds. Please leave Rover at home.

          What we mean by Private...is this- We are not open to the public except 4 rounds per day or, to corporate groups. Your round or, your group  
          will own the golf course during your round. If a corporate group or other group outing rents the ranch for the day you will own the course for

          the entire day.  No one else will be there except our staff.

16.   How long does it take to play a round of golf?
​           The safety instructions and registration take about 20 minutes and the game itself takes about 2 hours. So, plan to spend about 2 and a half
