I just wanted to thank you and your staff for hosting our celebration dinner at the “Bright Star” Monday night after we completed walking the entire Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.
The food, service, and hospitality were more than we could have hoped for. Truly a fantastic ending to a great year.

Many thanks,
Mac Davis, Donald Bolden, Larry Pettis and Vic Pemberton

Keep up the good work.”

Perfection! Thanks!”
