Fair Test

Very long and tough course. High slope and course rating. Played blue tees on a windy day which made it play longer and tougher. If you can’t hit it 230+ off tee most golfers will have enough course from member tees. Greens were very slow but I’m told they’re generally faster. Played in 4 hrs but starter tried to squeeze in a 2-some ( members) on back 9 where there was no gap. Not right. Good bar and food.

Nice experience

Good layout and no less than 8 different tees making this a course for both beginners and scrtch players. Fairly open with water into play at approx 10 holes, not much bunkers. Undulated and tricky greens (which were dressed on the day of play, so speed was on the slow and uneven side). Some wildlife adding interest - plenty iguanas, birds and squirrels. Quite pricey perhaps, but an enjoyable round of golf nevertheless.

Very Nice Course

Excellent track in very good condition. A few greens surrounded by water on 3 sides but fairly protected in the back with mounding.Excellent greens and challenging layout. Good value for the money. I will make this a regular when in Fort Lauderdale.

CHALLENGE!!

Great layout with lots of trouble, but still plenty fair and oppurtuies for a good score if your accurate off the tee. Approach shots need to be dialed in as well if you want to make par. Can’t wait to tackle this course again.

Play safe for better score

Golf PGA style the first difficulty is on the greens very wavy forward and many are bounded by the water just a few feet from the green, I will surely return, very nice course

Nice Round

Course is very difficult layout. Lots of water in the way and fair amount of sand in strategic spots. I do want to return and play it when winds are not 25+ MPH. Staff seemed very disinterested when I arrived for 7am tee time but maybe just not morning people.

Tough course!!!

Tough track but beautiful, if you don’t have your A game stay home or go play at an easier course but if you’re looking for a challenge go here.

Consistently good!’

Emerald Hills has become one of my favorite courses. The course is in good condition and the greens are challenging. What sets them apart is the quality of the customer service. Each employee takes such pride in his/her job. They never disappoint! Plus great range and chipping are. A little pricey but I’m a fan.

Turf turf turf

I used a hot deal but it wasn’t so hot. $75.00 is no deal for the course conditions. They weren’t horrible but $50 range is more appropriate. Full rate at around $100 is absurd. The layout is great. All unique holes of various difficulty. Greens avg. no burnt spots but a touch slow. Fairways junk. No distinction between rough. Tees worse. Markers weren’t even set up.

Pro shop staff great. Bag staff & starter one great one not so much.

I’d play again for right price but I’d have different expectations.
