Great track

This is, by FAR, the best public course in the New Bern area. I liked the layout, it was in good shape, and the greens rolled quick & true. I'll definitely be back!

Excellent course

Booked a round for a golf weekend with my dad, older brother and best friend and had an amazing time. Course was in excellent shape and we had a blast. I would expect to pay triple the greens fees where I live to get a comparable course.

Quick pace of play

Course was in great shape after all the rain we had. Went out as a solo and was definitely afraid of catching up to people. Never happened and played my own pace. Thanks for a great round.

This Emerald is a gem!

Course layout is excellent and conditions were spot on. Greens have some undulation, which adds to the challenge, but they were spotless and putted true. Loved it! Been going there off and on for the past 15+ years, always a pleasure, and it just seems to keep getting better. You'll not likely find a better course within 50 miles.

I think this is the best course in the New Bern area available to the public. The greens are definitely pro grade and speed. I play from the white tees but there are tee boxes available for all levels of play. Overall this course in in excellent shape for late April. The staff is very accommodating and they have a pretty good kitchen. Putting green and driving range are top notch. Being a semi private course they accommodate all comers very well. Great Course.
