About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   This place is absolutely stunning and no surprise to be in top 100 golf courses in the world. The views are mine blowing and the course is pristine. From the moment you are welcomed at the gate you feel very special and are treated like you're the only people playing three that day. A stunning experience.
