I WOULD SUGGEST TO ALL STEER CLEAR FOR THE NEXT FEW MONTHS AT LEAST Hadnt played emerald lakes in over 10yrs.

In very good condition with the greens and fairways no complaints.

By the 6th hole there were 4 groups queuing to tee off.

One of the group I was playing with called the pro shop to ask if there was a Marshall on the course and was told there was. The constant waiting for 5 mins after every shot eased after the front 9 - I can only assume some groups gave up and went home.

But for me, the very slow front 9 really ruined the round for me.

From what I could see was that the problem was basic slow play...long looking for balls, buggies driving from ball to ball and players waiting for each other and players sharing clubs!

Course is not in the best of conditions, but previous reviewer is being quite harsh. Greens had some patchy areas, but were fine to putt on.

You get what you pay for, so course is busy, and can be slow if you are a single player.

You could see the potential, but just about every fairway was in need of urgent attention.

The greens were heavily scarified and sanded - but to be fair, that was announced when making the booking.

Hopefully once all of the repairs are done it will be nice, but until then there are much better options on the GC.
