Holes 18
Type Private/Resort
Par 72
Length 6832 yards
Slope 140
Rating 72.9

Carrollwood Country Club offers three nines that are played in three different 18-hole combinations, one of them being the Meadows/Pines course. This layout combines the Meadow nine, which features smaller greens that the other nines, and the Pines nine, which is known for its towering trees. When combined they create a challenging golf course with plenty of water hazards. There are numerous strategically placed bunkers, including smaller pot bunkers and also large waste bunkers. The Meadow nine's seventh hole is considered the best par 3 at the club. This 158-yard hole has a forced carry past water and a bunker to an undulating green.
Formerly known as Emerald Greens Private Resort and Carrolwood Village Golf & Tennis Club.

Open to public

You don't have to join to play here. Non-members can play in leagues and off-peak. You can eat and drink too, just bring a credit card. Driving range is nice and no fees. Fairways are quite thin in places, and tee boxes are about the same. Greens usually are good.

Extremely well-maintained and managed

Emerald Greens always impresses me with their attention to detail. That indicates the property has very capable management that truly care about the golf experience offered to their members and guests. This is a private club, but it doesn't have that snobby country club attitude. Emerald Greens keeps it simple and offers a very affordable membership for those who want a relaxed, yet worthwhile private property to call their own. There are three different nines, all of which have or are in the process of going to sensational Champion Bermuda greens. I'm fortunate to often play as a guest here and am treated equally well by both staff and members. You will be too.

This course has 27 holes!

The club was in the process of replacing their greens on all three nines - with Atlanta Country Club type greens. One of the nines we played had the new greens and the other did not. The new greens were great and we had no complaints about the old greens on the other nine - they were very good. The grill room is a great place for after the round - food and beverage very reasonably priced and very good. Use of the driving range was included (excellent driving range)

The staff is also great.
