Emerald Lake Golf Club
lets be honest: this course has no business charging $70 a round in it's current shape. Most of the teeboxes and fairways were in decent enough shape for a public course but the greens looked like they had just been shelled by battleships for hours before we started our round. saw several fairway bunkers in need of a good mow or a water pump. it was a fun layout with a lot of great holes, but at that price point i would expect the grounds crew to be a little more invested in what the course looks like. PS - to all my fellow golfers who leave divots and ball marks all over the greens with repairing them: you are not helping anyone or anything. please do better cleaning up after yourselves and we can all enjoy nicer looking courses.
Very nice course, good prices, challenging yet fun, great staff and friendly players on the course. Hole 9 green fringe was in rough shape, another couple of holes on back were as well from the mower on the green. Has potential for 5 stars.
Great course played first time today, moved to Charlotte a year ago. Great scenery, water views, fairways, but Greens not good ,weeds and the green conditions. Will play again just hope they can correct the green issues.
Absolutely awful. Greens are in terrible condition, bunkers are not maintained, and all the staff had were excuses when I brought it up. Just about every muni course in Charlotte is in better shape, save your money. I gave 2 stars because the fairways and rough were in very good shape. Otherwise, charging $87 for a round here is borderline criminal. Pics are a fairway bunker on 5 and the green on 7. Edit: after seeing Marias response, I checked greens fees and they are $6 less. So if $81 seems more reasonable to you than $87 for a round in these conditions, enjoy.
$90 round for the worst greens Ive ever played on. Rest of course is great, fun layout and fairways are pure. Not sure how they think they can charge that much when greens are in such horrible shape.
