The club at Emerald Hills is one of the best courses I played in the recent past. Water on many holes, elevated greens that are fast. Overall well maintained. Staff are very friendly and cheerful. One improvement would be if they could widen or even strictly maintain the gap between tee times, it would avoid wait times. The first tee is away from the club house, and it was interesting to find 2 or 3 foursomes waiting on the 1st tee. But overall a very good course. Many tee boxes and wants you to come back. Price is slightly higher, unless you get some deals on golf now. Would recommend.

Course has many tee boxes depending on your length off the tee. Staff was just ok, not over friendly! We were the second tee time passed a twosome on the 4th hole and never looked back thus the pace of play was never an issue. I’d play the course again but only with GN hot deal and would never pay the asking price of $130 -

I like a long golf course and got a tough challenge of 7827 yards and a lot of water . This course has probably been very spectacular but now it lost a lot of its charm due to bad maintenance. If you can get a good discount it is still worth playing when in the area.

Challenging course. Greens were REALLY SLOW. They hadn’t been cut that day and appeared to be recently sanded. Friends said they played the course the next day and thought they were fast, so I think it depends on the day.

The course was good and a fun track. The cart barn staff that helped us when we arrived and the server at the 19th were great. The proshop staff was not helpful at all. We were the first group out and they were moving and watering the green on literally every hole we played. They need to go from 18-1 not 1-18. Better courses in the area.

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!
