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.

The Sapphire is a short but very challenging 18 hole course. Even though there are a lot of par 3's, there are plenty of holes to make you think, including some of the par 3's. The layout can be slightly confusing to the first time visitor with a couple of tees hidden round the back of other tees. However, considering the rain that had fell previously, the course was in good condition.

Well worth a round

Had a great day, the numerous burns caught us out but the course was in good condition and the green pretty constant.

Very NIce Course

I had played this course a number of years ago, but it has changed quite a bit and the facilities are very good, plus the staff are very helpful. They have a hole fly over facility which you can download to your phone, however my wife and I have Android phones and it did not work on them and as a lot of the greens are protected by burns we came a cropper on quite a few of them, but still a most enjoyable round.

lots of straight fairways on this course, not so many tricky holes, but very well kept and still a challenge

Fantastic course worth visiting

The course itself is fantastic and worth visiting. The hotel is lovely and very suitable for your needs, clean and spacious. The food once arrived was nice but small portions. The pro shop and staff in there were brilliant and very accommodating. The biggest let down and very disappointingly so was the extreme slowness of the service of the hotel bar and catering staff. You could blame the current situation but it was appalling. Ruined the 4 day break for us.

Excellent course - poor greens :-(

Challenging Peter Alliss designed course unfortunately let down by the condition of the greens. Given the fact that the course has had a 3 month 'rest? due to Covid, the greens should have been in far better condition.

A tough course

Played the Championship course 3 days a couple of weeks ago. The weather wasn't good but the course was in good condition in spite of the rain. The greens were very good. There are a lot of challenging holes on the course but this makes the course more interesting. A must play course.
