Emerald Lake

Although the driving range looks good as far as the targets the grass is nothing to exist. Nothing but dirt. Greens are horrible and I have a van or six times I’ve played here. Fairways have finally started to grow grass instead of mold. Probably my last time here.

Easter Sunday

Course reversed 9s since my previous round a couple of months ago, and my GPS still had the old hole order so I was mixed up. Lots of rain lately, so conditions were sub-optimal, with cart path only, limited mowing, and recently plugged/sanded greens. I plugged shots in several fairways due to soft conditions. Tee boxes had either sparse grass, or had not been mowed. Greens were generally OK despite the recent plugging/sanding. Driving range had limited grass. Sand traps were generally pretty good, especially for the amount of rain we've had.
I like this track, it is always enjoyable and the course is somewhat at the mercy of Mother Nature this time of year. i'll come back, and hope they will get an opportunity to get conditions under control.

Course Review

Pretty disappointed in the maintenance of this course. Weeds and un mowed tee boxes on almost all holes. I’ve never seen so many weeds in my life in a course. Pretty disappointed on what my group expected. Needs a lot of work or this course is going downhill fast. Not to mention all good carts are beat to s***. Still running on gas power. Feel like there not replacing to get every penny back into there “clubhouse”

The entire course was a muddy mess. Every where I stepped on the course this afternoon, I was stepping in mud or water. The course should have been closed today due to its condition.

They had a group holding up the whole course. A group of 5 was 2 holes ahead of them. Otherwise a good day for golf. The greens were plugged and made it difficult but still had fun.

Ruined round

Horrible course conditions. Just horrible, the only words I have, carts were junk, our cushion looked as if a raccoon had pawed it all night, I should count myself lucky, playing partners broke down mid round.....Driving range was killer though !!

It hasn’t rained in over 3days, but the fairways are really soggy, they shouldn’t allow anyone to play. They are making it worse by letting ppl play

Sloshy Day

It was a sloshy day when I went. Layout was great, greens seemed to be a little overmowned, however still putted true.

I wish these courses would keep winter rates longer. The courses are just not in good enough condition to warrant full price until like May at the earliest.

Get yourself a hot deal for around 20 bucks and then it may be worth it

Wet

Like most courses in the area it is wet. Charlotte has had 50%+ more rain than normal so the fairways are soft and you have to walk through 'wet' areas. I was hoping to play more - trying to play once a week but I think I will hold off until the fairways dry out. It is not fun when you are having to guard against taking too much turf, and walking from the cart path to your ball. Cleaning the ball after every shot - I am sure there are more but I only saw two (2) ball washers on the course.

Great considering

They're still recovering from all the rain, but the course played quite well anyway. They need to move the range tees to where there is actually grass. The layout is a good balance of fair, fun, and challenging.

One of the favs

Typical Value = 9/10

Unfortunately this course has taken a hit w all the rain and still needs to dry as of 2/6/19. Other than that issue, which can be serious at times, it’s my second favorite to play not traveling more than 5milies outside of 485.
I play here 3x a month so I’ve watched it get better but still needs time to heal.
