The Emerald Dunes golf course, originally designed by Tom Fazio and first unveiled in 1990, was greeted with unanimous acclaim, quickly climbing onto the numerous lists of the best courses in the state and nation. But now, more than two decades later, Emerald Dunes has been reinvented and refined thanks to a multi-million-dollar investment personally supervised by Fazio.
Every hole has been enhanced, and a vast amount of foliage has been planted along the perimeter of the property thus ensuring privacy and seclusion. With more than 100 bunkers and 60 acres of lakes, the 18-hole course consists of five sets of tees with a total yardage ranging from just under 5,200 to over 7,100 yards, with a par of 72.
In addition to 18 holes of championship golf, the course embraces the natural beauty of the land while enriching it
with impeccable landscaping. Fazio utilized the natural dunes to create signature mounding and flash-faced bunkers adorned with native ornamental grasses. And unlike the typical, hard, concrete paths commonly utilized, the paths at Emerald Dunes consist of crushed native coquina shells complemented with old-world hand-set pavers.
The end result is an aesthetically breathtaking, versatile, and stimulating experience for players of all levels.
