Greens tough but fair

This course is in great shape. A great value for your dollar and quick pace. The rough is a bit unforgiving, but stay in the fairways to avoid that issue. The sand in the traps is new and nice. A great round. Thank you to the crew there, they are keeping it awesome!

Rushed through this course

Very disappointing. Golf cart was taken by someone else. Rushed through the whole course by the Marshall. I had major anxiety. We will NOT be returning. The course is also under high power lines and had a helicopter flying above the entire time.

Perfect weather

Great condition, fast greens, done fast

Have always wanted to play this highway-adjacent 9 holer and got off on a weekday at about 6:30 am. There was one twosome a few holes ahead of me so my pace of place was awesome and at my own leisure. I played a couple balls on each hole and was done 75 minutes.

The greens were freshly cut and FAST. Might the best muni course/executive course greens I have ever been on. Layout was perfect for beginners put challenging enough to keep a scratch player interested. There are some power lines and towers running through the course but I think its kind of cool and gives the course character.

Gentleman in the shop was very nice and helped me out when I lost my credit card on the course.

All in all a really nice experience. I will definitely be coming back!

Underrated Track

Little-noticed but in amazing condition and has been for quite a while! Great bunkers and greens.
Great people except for the desk/attendant today, who was surly and borderline rude. Never experienced that before; others sre friendly and helpful.

Great First Experience

I am a happy patron, my 7 year old son got to play golf for the first time ever. The course is a perfect starter coarse for anyone learning to play. Short yardage, flat terrain, well maintained playing surfaces and 9 holes made for a perfect place to have my son learn the game. The play was really slow due to a couple inexperienced groups in front of us, but that allowed for time to teach my son the etiquette of the game. All in all, The course is in great shape and a great place to play a fast 9 and get in some good practice.

Great course for a quick 9!

Emerald is a nice little challenging 9 hole course! I play here often due to not always having time for 18. Well maintained, nice staff and great driving range and chip and putt area.

Well maintained

After all the rain, the course is playable. The course drained well. The fairways had a few wet spots on 2 holes but overall in great shape which was expected due to winter conditions. The greens are excellent. Staff is nice and friendly.
