Best around!!

This has to be one of the best 9 hole courses around.
You get a good mix of everything.
Its not just an irons course like most executives.
The only improvement would for it to be 18 holes.
Keep it up Emerald Lakes!!

Surprised

Not an executive course. Short , but a few extremely long par 3's . Greens were surprisingly fast and course was in good shape. Lots of water to avoid.

Great greens!

I played at noon on a Monday and the greens were in outstanding shape. These are some of the smoothest and fastest greens in the Sacramento area. Keep up the good work!

Great Track

Best condition of any muni in the region. No doubt. Fairways, greens and (yes!) bunkers are just about perfect.
CSD and Elk Grove can be proud!
