I really like this course….except when it rains. Unfortunately our tee time was in the morning and we had rain for 5 holes. There was a lot of standing water and no covers on the carts for your clubs. Hopefully Emerald Lakes can replace their burnt carts with carts that have rain covers. The fairways, tee boxes and greens look healthy. No bare spots for the most part but the greens need some work. Ball marks are a problem and a few holes have problems with weed growth. The greens did roll well and it appeared as if they place the pin in the “good” areas of the green. Not sure if that was intentional or just luck but they need to be aerated and seeded before I recommend or play this course again. $45 is a fair Sunday morning price and pace was great due to the weather. I would still choose this course over most of the Carolina Trail courses that are in the South Charlotte area…..except when it rains.
