Emerald Lake is a great place to play. The fairways were really nice, the greens rolled true even though there were punch holes. The traps need work as some had little sand still, same as my last review. Pace of play was slow due to us, there wasn't anyone in front of us. WE let several groups through. Couldn't repair divots though, there wasn't any sand on the carts either, they must be out of sand.

I hadn't ever played here, but will definately be coming back. Tees good, fairways OK but coming in, greens really good. I couldn't read them, but they putted really true. Not too fast. It is a difficult up and down course and you don't want to stray away from the fairway, but some are really wide. Several blind tee shots. I liked it a lot.

Fairways were a little thin, but not too bad. The senior tees were way up near the reds on most holes. Tees Ok, Bunkers really good. Greens perfect. Rolled very true. Most divots were filled with sand, congrats to the people who play there.

Fairways good, Some bunkers thin, Tees coming in. Greens getting better after aeration. They were still spotty and sandy, but we had a good time. Needs a few more weeks to be great.

Red Bridge was in good shape, Fairways coming in, greens in good shape and rolling true. Bunkers the best I've seen this year, unfortunately for me. I like Red Bridge for the variety of shots you must make, even though I didn't make them this time.

Larkhaven did not overseed this year and the fairways are dried grass and thin. Bunkers in need of sand. Greens are good and fast, but you can't hold a shot. A friend had a 12ft downhill putt, missed and had 60 feet coming back. When it greens up it will be much better with some bunker work.

I really enjoyed Red bridge today. Tee boxes were fine, greens really good, I don't read them very well so I can't comment on that. Fairways good, both sand traps I was in were really good, plenty of sand and fluffy. You can't beat $22 Tuesday, but it's worth the regular rate for sure. I played the gold tees.

I gave the course 2.5 because from tee to green it's really nice. Tee boxes are lush, fairways really good, traps nice and sandy. The greens, especially on the front side are terrible. I played there a month ago and went back today because they were good then. Something has done them in. Lot's of bare spots and sand everywhere.

Haven't played here in long time. I really enjoyed today's round. Mostly in good shape, the greens are really good. Slow, but held a shot better than most greens around here. I stopped the ball all day. A couple of fairways had bare spots, but there was good grass right next to them. The golfers here keep the ball marks fixed on the greens and put a lot of sand in divots. I find that refreshing. Going back again soon. All 4 of us liked it.

they have come a long way. Resodded some of the tees, most of the greens were great. Fairways good and traps good. I really enjoyed playing there and I wish I could have not had 10 chips not get on the green. I'll be back soon.

I really like Emerald Lake. The tee boxes were good, I played the blues. The fairways were excellent, good lies all day. The greens were terrible. They had punched about 2 weeks ago, not a problem, but the weeds were awful. There was not a putt that didn't bounce around. I'm not sure how the greens get out of hand like this?

Overall Ok. Good, fairways and tee boxes. Greens rolled well but were marred by tons of ball marks. I think the greens are too soft. My ball put craters in them. Sand traps are unplayable. Full of muddy sand and water. #12 trap was 2 feet deep. Needs work. Played really fast for our foursome which is usually not fast.

the fairways haven't grown in yet. Lots' of skimpy lies. As we know the course does not drain well, there were lots of bare spots where water accumulates. It was 2 days after the big rain and cart path only. It needed to be. Tees are torn up. Greens are still a little bumpy from aerating. Good note, the bunkers were very good.

As I've said before I really like Stonebridge. The greens had been punched and were still bumpy, probably a week away from being back to good. The tee boxes were worn. Sand looked good, but I didn't play from it. Fairways still growing in.

Larkhaven is in great shape. Fairways and tee boxes really good. New greens can be very fast downhill, but roll really well. The problem was that pin placements were impossible, leading to a couple of 4 putts. If you missed the hole you went 15-20 ft. past with no hope of stopping it. This happened to me and on the way back I left my putt about 6 inches short and it rolled back to my feet. It was described as "gooney golf" by a player in our group. Otherwise a great place to play on one of my favorites.

The fairways were great, they were dragging them to get the clumps of grass out from mowing. Sand traps were wet from rain, but Ok. Greens held great, but were pockmarked from balls hitting them. They rolled great unless you hit a mark, but we just played around them. I really like Stonebridge.

New greens roll well, Not too fast or slow. The pins were in some tough spots today, you could roll way past if you were just a little too hard. I only left one ball mark though, so they are hard. I didn't hold the ball as I usually do. Fairways thin in spots, as usual. Traps looked good, but I never hit out of one. Had fun and enjoyed Larkhaven as usual.

The course was in it's usual really good shape. Tees very good, fairways excellent, greens rolled well but were very ball marked. Again, poor golfers not repairing marks correctly. The one sand trap I hit out of was great. I really liked it, looking for some deals though. I try to use up 4 containers of sand each round. Fill all holes next to where I hit.

Eagle Chase is a fun course in very good shape. The fairways are growing in well, tee boxes a little torn up, but players could help this with sand. Greens have been sanded and did not hold a shot, therefore you had to play short. Part of the game. they putted well though. Maybe a little slow. I loved it there and will go back.

As previously noted, lots of marks on the greens. I think it's where they are trying to get some type of weedy grass out of them. They were working on #3 while we played. Fairways OK, but thin in spots. Sandtrap I was in was low on sand and I skulled it out. Overall OK,

Had a great time. Greens rolled true. But there are a lot of ball marks, not the fault of the course, but players. Sand traps good. Tee boxes good. Play was slow because of the rain.

I've played here before and really like the course. I found it to be perfect today. The greens were super and fast and true. The fairways are grown in very well and the rough is just about right. The traps are excellent, and I hate traps. What else can I say.

As is the usual comments for trail courses, The Divide is in rough shape. The fairways are thin, maybe no fertilizer, who knows. The greens had be punched and had a ton of sand on them. Surprisingly I putted well. The traps had no sand. You were chipping off dirt or were in a pond in the trap. I has the trail pass, so I'm committed to playing them before Nov. I'm hoping for better, but I heard today that they hadn't been paying employees. Who wants to work for no pay.

I played terrible so that probably figures into my rating. Fairways were thin, greens seemed dry with the holes in them. I bumped along. Traps were excellent, I once played 7 straight shots from them. It seemed to be in better shape last year at this time when I played it last. It will be super when the greens and fairways grow in.

Played Larkhaven today. It had rained a bunch about 1 and 1/2 hours before our tee time and we had to do cart path only, but the good news was we only did it for nine holes. Fairways and greens are excellent. Pace of play was OK, but there was a 5-some in front of us. They slowed us up some. Pace maybe was closer to 5 hours because we started earlier than our tee time. I would highly recommend this course in it's current shape. Played with my son and he was astounded by how good it was.

The course was in good shape. Greens were good,were running average, not too fast or slow. fairways also good, but the people who play there need to fill their divots. I really enjoyed this course. I'll go back as soon as it's 60 again

Tee boxes pretty bad, greens in terrible shape. Had a lot of dead spots, and as others have commented, the players themselves are to blame. I repaired at least 5 ball marks on every green. The greens were really soft because they'd been watered. My score was high because I played from the tips on the front side for fun and shot 59. Sand traps looked good, but when you got in them, there was just a thin layer of sand, so it was like hitting from a bare lie.
