The heart of a gracious clubhouse is a welcoming bar and restaurant where you can enjoy an excellent meal in beautiful surroundings, and entertain with confidence. David's always has an eye on golf, with a wall of windows that overlooks the 18th fairway...but after the sun goes down, the crackling fireplace becomes the focal point. Relax with one of our signature martinis or one of 15 beers on tap!
