What the club says: The Emerald Championship Course covers a total distance of 6,714 yards and is a par 73. Emerald sweeps around undulating fairways through natural water hazards and strategically placed bunkers, presenting a real golfing challenge to experienced and mid-level players.

The shorter par 66 Sapphire Course is designed to hone the skills of less experienced and veteran golfers in the finer points of the short game.

Lots of trees

One of the most challenging courses I have ever played. It?s a par 73 with many trees and very tight off the tee so accuracy is very important. All bunkers were GUR due to the Corona situation . I suspect the bunkers if they had sand would have been difficult to play. There were quite a few and some very deep.

Sapphire Course

This is a Par 66 with 7 par three's and one par 5. which if looked after could be a fantastic course to play. But the greens are the worst I have ever played on, they are in a absolutely discussing state, also the tee box's are not good but only just acceptable.

Good course

Overall good course
Signage to next tee was hit and miss and is bit hard to follow, some of the greens are in a poor condition but well kept
Very challenging even though not the longest course

Excellent Course and worth a second visit.

Played this twice in 2 days and really enjoyed it. Some great holes. Quite a few you are hitting blind to marker poles, however they open up really well and are quite panoramic views. Give it a bash and you will not be disappointed.
