Played this course in October and hated it due to overgrown rough that was unplayable - quit after 9 holes!

Now, much better. Rough tough, but not crazy hard, greens improved, 80% of storm debris on sidelines cleaned up. Nice layout that needs more TLC, like many older facilities in South Florida. Recommended at non peak times and non peak price!

Played at Emerald for the first time. The fairway was thirsty and in need of water on 16 of 18 holes. The grass was sooooo dry that i lost several balls because the ball blended into the rough. Also, they still need to clear a lot of debris related to hurricane Irma. Lucky for me i found a good deal on golfnow. Spend your $ at Jacarranda or Plantation Reserve!!

A great layout, requiring accuracy and thoughtful play. Staff were friendly and easygoing, but there were no rangers (we didn't see a single one) to maintain pace of play. Our front nine was seriously derailed by a foursome including three rank beginners and no etiquette whatsoever. Having skipped the tenth, pace was fine.

The other issue was that greens were pretty chewed up and painfully slow.

Still, worth the effort.
