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.
Great practice for the price
We paid $14/ea to walk 9. Not too busy on Sunday afternoon and great short game practice (longest hole +/- 175 yards). Try it out.
Needs some work
Right now, most fairway grass has died and there is no stopping a ball on the fairway on 1,2,4,5,7 and 9. If you leave it short of the green, expect it to roll off the fairway and maybe lose your ball. The course needs to make it playable for high handicappers, like making a berm or sand to prevent roll off.
Good course care & maintenance
Beautiful greens. Well manicured. The tee boxes at most holes are kinda wrecked. Careful on 3 hole green. Lots of baby frogs to putt around.
Awesome 9-hole course
Emerald Hills is a fantastic course with a good variety of holes. Because it's hilly, there are challenging uphill and downhill lies. Not too many obstacles, so it's beginner-friendly. The first 3 holes are ~150 yards, so you can hit something longer than a 9i. With the exception of hole 7 and 8 where you need to wait a while, I really enjoyed playing here. The price with GolfNow is only $5, so it's pretty much a steal. Very satisfying to hit green shots from the tee.
I am from Florida, so the hills and small, narrow fairways were challenging. I can see this course will help with my short game. Chipping and putting practice area is excellent.
Better, but still needs work
Staff has done a much better job of mowing and the tall grass in the middle of the fairway is nearly all gone. Lots of poorly maintained areas still exist, but it is much better than in past months/years. For the Golf Now $5 price, it is still worth playing.
Must be a billy goat.
Good for your short game. Very hilly course. Not a good course for the elderly. but if you get a discount via a website, then good price to work on short game.
Waste of time and money.
If you value golf then stay away from this course. This course should have a disclaimer that it is basically a cow pasture with 9 holes. Weeds everywhere including the fairway! The only positive I can say is if you need to go for a hike then this course is a good workout....just don't bring the clubs. This course is misrepresented in several golfing resources/reviews. Don't make a special trip to play this course. A complete waste of time!
Recent rains caused some areas to be sloppy, but we lost balls in the middle of the fairways due to lack of mowing in areas that were dry.
Played this 9 hole course and it was ok. Great value was compelling. Will play again.
Short practice walk
Had a couple of hours to kill and walked this course. Quite hilly but short & manageable. Tee & greens are very acceptacle.
Sunday morning outing
If you want some fresh air and don't mind dirt track walking (sometimes stiff hills), no need to use a driver and polish on your 7-9 irons, go for it.
What I heard was true
Need your hill climbing skills! Very challenging to walk with a cart. If I play it again I would carry and remove several clubs from my bag.
The greens had been plugged which should be publicized. The first hole was closed though several players who followed me played it anyway. Another issue that should be told up front.
The staff was extremely helpful.
Hard little 3
Shot a -3 from the Blues only due to my iron play.
The greens are VERY small and FAST but in the best shape ive ever seen them in. Good work EHills.
Get a nicer staff tho. They seem golf illiterate and bored and rude.
