So Much Potential
I would recommend Emerald Lakes attend to their greens as a priority.
The course is looking dated. This is not referring to the club house and facilities, they need to start by addressing the green keeping procedures. Everywhere you look you notice there is no attention to detail on the course. The fairways are patchy, there is minimal distinction between fairways and rough and the greens are so slow and unpredictable.
The course design and layout offers so much potential. It felt as if it was somewhat abandoned.
You get what you pay for
Being one of the cheaper courses in the area, maybe I came into my round expecting too much. Course was pretty flooded from the rain, even the high spots were essentially mud. Course itself seems like it could be a lot of fun if maintained. For how hot it gets, was pretty surprised to not see a single water cooler on the course, and the “watering hole” after the 9th was closed. Had to trek it all the way back to the clubhouse to get water.
A nice golfing experience
The course was great overall; fairly forgiving but at the same time, not too easy.
Pity Qantas Golf is run by an American organisation and the financial system is American and therefore, the International banking charges associated with “buying an overseas product”.
