My wife and I really enjoyed our first round of golf at the Club at Emerald Hills. The course was challenging, but fair, and the pace of play was very good. The employees were very helpful and friendly, and made the day even more enjoyable.

It was pure pleasure to play this course today. We went out after a tournament & the starter was kind enough & aware enough to put us off behind the tourney on 10. We played in 3-1/2 hours as a threesome. Course conditions were excellent. I love the grass on the fairways here. Got to try my new irons out with this lovely grass. Loved this course & wish we could afford to play more often!

Five months after being hit into by country luminary Toby Keith, I ventured back out to test one of South Florida's grandest layouts and was not disappointed. The condition of the fairways and tee boxes were much improved since December, but the greens ran slow and were a bit bumpy on some holes. The traps were concrete-firm, due to recent rains. I paired up with a regular and we zoomed around in about three pleasant hours. As the course was nearly deserted on a Tuesday afternoon, there was no beverage cart and the bar was closed when we finished the round. There is no GPS at EH, which is a shame for a track of this magnitude. Pro shop staff and cart attendants were friendly and attentive. A solid Golf Now deal for $30.

This course was great! I loved the challenge. Definitely would go back. I would've liked the greens to be rolling a bit faster. Needed to cut them lower.

Don’t be put off by the length - play the right tees and this track is a blast. Cool layout, very good conditions. On and around the greens can be tricky! Much sterner test for low handi than other more highly touted courses in the area.

Amazing Layout, works well with my eye and shot shape. Greens are incredible and very tough, speed is perfect. Wish I was still a long hitter like when I was young, but now I play from the white tees and I’m very happy there. Shot 89 first time out, shot 82 today even though I missed 5 par putts inside 6 feet. I live off the fairway on the 12 th hole for 12 years, and I am ashamed to say I’ve never played your course till last week, But I am happy to say I will be singing the courses praise to all my friends and family. Thanks to all of the amazing staff especially Travis for making me feel like family whenever I come. See you soon
