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.

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.

Not the Best but great value

2 day trip which was superb, we opted to play the Emerald both days as the Sapphire isnt great. the fairways were a bit groggy and we played pick and place. Green were better second day after a cut but all in all it was a decent course. £79 dinner bed and breakfast with two rounds of golf cant complain!

Emerald Course, Hill Valley

It was my second recent visit to Hill valley yesterday. I had recently played the shorter course, the Sapphire, so wanted to try the Emerald course to compare. The greeting on arrival was again very friendly and professional, the clubhouse looked very nice, the course itself was very nice and quite challenging for my wayward drives, a good parkland course at almost 6,500 yards. The fairways and greens were in good condition and the rough had been looked after too. The only dissapointment was the state of the bunkers, they needed fresh sand adding and a bit of care and attention, but apart from that very good.

2 great courses in a lovely setting

A fantastic set up with 2 great courses, both a good test of golf. The sapphire shorter course requires precision golf with tight fairways -it was in great condition.
The Emerald course over 6000 yds off the yellows, with testing greens, is superb.Not for the faint hearted!. For the amount of traffic on the courses they are in excellent condition.A great value for money Sunday driver deal.
