The layout of the course is interesting, challenging and features perfectly manicured lush, rolling fairways. You'll be glad you experienced this excellent combination of hole designs and truly great golf. Water comes into play on 10 holes.

Beautiful Course

Beautiful Course, layout and design are really nice. The weather was not cooperative as it rained off and on throughout, but I will play here again. One of the top 3 courses I've played in Florida and I have played some really nice courses here.

Course in bad shape

Unfortunately, this used to be a very well kept course but when we played on Monday, the tee boxes looked as if they had not been mowed down in weeks. Greens were aerated. I would avoid this course until they bring it back to life.

Club Emerald Gem

First time playing this course. I will be back. Great course to challenge every golfer, just play from the correct tees, which there are many. Of note, (which is rare, even rarer that it was free) I was given a yardage book! Great addition, very helpful. Other courses take note! The course was being cut, slight distraction, more so from the cut grass than the mowers. The mowing team were very respectful of golfers and stopped once you came within range.
Overall, great value for the money, looking to my next round to improve on my score.

A must play

Great course. Super friendly staff. Great value. Plenty of variety from hole to hole. Considering the amount of maintenance they’ve put in to the greens, the course was in good shape. Loved the course layout. Definitely challenging, but very fun to play. Will definitely be back. Great job guys. Thanks.

Challenging but fun

Great course, beautiful layout, very challenging. Not a course for the faint of heart. And definitely not for novice players like myself. Not very forgiving but I enjoyed the challenge. Lots of lizards on hole 17. But as a visitor to South Florida I probably should have chosen a more level appropriate course. Even the staff members said they wouldn't play there as beginners or intermediate players. And they play for free. But I enjoyed my experience.

Amazing course!

I was greeted by Jeremy and Jake, super friendly guys! It was my first time, they pointed me to the pro shop. The employees in the pro shop were very nice and got me to the starter pretty quick. Jake gave me water and pointed me to the first hole. The course was beautiful and well kept! Some holes had the guitar from Hollywood beach in the back round. Overall I had an amazing time, so good I booked a tee time for the follow day!

Tough track - good challenge

Long course but many tee boxes to choose from. When you score well here, you know you’ve had a good day.
