Golf Courses

Emerald Golf Course

Architect:  Fazio Design Group
Description:
The Emerald is cut through thick and beautiful vegetation but has wide fairways and landing areas. The greens are well protected with numerous bunkers, and sand comes into play on several of your drives. This course allows you to pull the "Big Dawg" out on all of the par 4s and 5s, and from the back tees, a couple of the par 3s might need the driver. The Fazio Design Group has turned this course into a challenge for all levels of play.

Ruby Golf Course

Architect:  Fazio Design Group
Description:
With trade winds always blowing, seemingly in your face on every hole, coupled with a challenging new Fazio design, the Ruby provides an excellent golf experience. The Fazio Design Group's reshaping of fairways, bunkers and greens has taken this Joe Lee design to a new level of playability. Numerous sugar-white bunkers give the eye a pleasing contrast against the emerald-colored fairways and greens - but steer clear of these steep-lipped traps or the results may not be sweet.
