No point in this course
I made a reservation through Golfnow. I arrived and they stated they raised their prices by $5 per golfer. I was unaware of this as there’s no signs anywhere. A friend of mine informed me that the course has some steep uphills so recommended to get a cart. I asked for 2 carts for my party but hey said the carts were only for members. My friend stated he’s not a member and he’s gotten carts before. I don’t know what the big deal is limiting carts as there was literally no one there. To top it off there was a golf camp that was going before my tee time so they had us skip holes 1-3 and finish it later. The price increase I don’t mind but this course is absolutely awful. Many steep inclines and the grass was terrible. It looked as if it had been abandoned for months. If anyone were in the area I would recommend Mariners much more than this.
Someone approached me in the parking lot and rudely told me he wanted me to move my car I couldn't park here. I'm sure he was a member, what he should have done was talk to the staff , instead he approached me. I felt that was a verbal attack on myself and made my displeasure very apparent. I didn't feel comfortable playing my round , I had played that course before and parked in the same spot without issue. This is the reason nobody likes people from California. Maybe he needs a lesson in manners from where I'm from!
I would not recommend this course , my 2nd experience there I was approached in the parking lot and was rudely told I couldn't park in the same spot I parked the first time I played this course. This person did not identify himself with any affiliation with the course. I felt that was a verbal attack on myself and did not feel comfortable playing at the with him, I made sure he knew my feelings on the situation. I would guess he is a member. What he should have done is contact the course management not address me directly. This is why nobody likes people from California. He could use a lesson in manners from someone from Georgia!
Golfnow customer support is weak to non existent !
Way easier to just call the course, Golfnow has not way to share or inform them real time of issues with their site's short falls. Hence why pay a convenience fee for an inconvenience. Course is formally known as Goat Hill. Play once and you will know why ? Tight, hilly, eclectic and just plain fun. Bring your own beverages unless you are a card carrying Elk member.
Course was fine for being so inexpensive but it has a frisbee golf course that follows the golf course so that is double the amount of people and hazards to watch out for which seemed a bit chaotic for the small course.
Emerald hills is a nice tucked away course that is perfect for a golf addict.
Emerald Hills Golf course, (Redwood : CA)
Good course to test short game skills & 3 par (S) up/down on slope course bring on narrow shots to become a better rescue/recovery shot maker to be translate to 18 hole flat courses....a confidences builder.
Staff has always. been polite, <Joe, Devon, & Matt>. u must tell/bring a friend.; & easy slide to get on play @ a deal.
Grow the grass
Needs grass to keep balls from rolling off the course.
Hidden Little gem
Played Emerald Hills by myself today and I mean by myself, there was nobody else on the course this afternoon. It’s a small course with several up and down shots, some tricky shots will definitely challenge you. Not a beautiful course as there were several dirt roads or ugly ruffs leading you from one hole to the next, but the greens were very nice and well maintained. I would recommend this terrific little course in the Redwood City Hills.
The setting is a bucolic combination of neighborhood and woods. Children could be heard playing in the pool and we saw a deer walk by!
The best parts of the course – and these were excellent – were the greens and the tee boxes, which somehow have avoided the predations of the gophers!
Accuracy was rewarded and areas of the rough were very rough.
