Great for Iron play

I decided to give this course a try because I had a little extra time and was in the area. I am glad I did, I didn’t think playing a par 3 course would fun, but I was wrong. It can be challenging in some spots, but if you want to work on irons, this place is for you. The staff were very friendly, Carts are in average condition but it’s a par 3 course so I wasn’t expecting a gravity stop, gps cart, so it got the job done. I also had my 4 year old son with me, they didn’t charge me for him to tag along with his clubs so my son and I had a blast. The pace of play was great, no one rushed us and everyone on the course seemed laid back. The greens were fast and in great condition, the tee box I really didn’t care about, I thought they were just fine. Overall my experience was good! I would definitely play here again. Only thing that caught me off guard was the price. I clicked 9 holes for $0.00 on the website. When I got there the cashier said they don’t offer that, they charge for 18 holes. So I ended up paying 20 bucks. Even though I wasn’t expecting to play 18 holes for $20, I am glad I did. Probably should change that, some people might not like that.

Full Irons Workout

The next time you can’t decide between the Driving Range and playing a quick 18, think about playing at Emerald Isle. You’ll get a full Irons Workout, practice shots ranging from 85-245 yards. Yes, this course is very rough (scrub) in some areas, but still a fun, quick course where you can focus on what you’ve been practicing.

Hopefully, the Autumn/Winter rains will fill the ponds and easy the water burden common to most golf courses.

All said a good place to play/practice.

Beautiful greens

This course always seems to be immaculate. The greens are always consistent in speed and well manicured. If I had to pick one thing the course could improve, it would be the tee boxes.

Management and marshal ruined day

Course was fun and challenging for an executive! But the manager in the pro shop was rude and very unfriendly towards the non regulars. And then while on the course the marshal very rudely explained to us about how a foursome should let a twosome play thru. Even though we asked the twosome if they wanted to go thru multiple times. Then on hole #11 when we were getting taught a lesson on golf etiquette by the marshal. We again asked the twosome to go thru. And again they declined. The marshal apologized. But if he had only talked to us like the adults that we are. He would have known that we had already offered. Other than that. The course is well maintained. They just need a Lil lesson in customer service!!!

Poor conditions

Rate increase, due to operating cost. Do we need to know this. Why is everyone not increasing rates? Cart paths are a literal pain. Cars don't have enough power and the breaks don't always work correctly. The staff is not into what they do, just doing a job. Ambassadors can be friendly, but often times don't have a clue as to what is going on. Just reacts to biggest complainers. Course could be fun if fixed up.

Excellent Course for Short Game

This course offers challanges for all levels of play. The greens are well maintained and require focus to make par. while this is a short course, the elevation and breezes can make club selection challanging. the staff does an excellent job with T box and pin locations so one feels they are never playing the same course.

Slow play

Because it is a public course, play can be slow, although they did have a Marshall. The first nine was slow but the back nine went nicely. Course is OK, greens were actually good, fairways need some work.

marshall was terrible

the marshall was more interested in selling beer than keeping flow of play.

a threesome of guys who took over 20 minutes a hole backed up the entire course. at least 3 groups went around the super slow threesome and ended up not playing the full 18 because they had to jump around the course. meanwhile the marshall just sold beer to everyone who was backed up, WHEN he should have been making the threesome keep pace.

also before teeing off at hole 1, some old guy tries selling us golf balls for 25 cents each and wants to chat for as long as possible. i thought he was scheduled to make our group a foursome, but no, he works at course and is just there to sell golfballs and tries to find out if you can hook him up with a good deal on a golf club. ugh... never going back.
