Emerald Greens Golf Resort And Country Club To Unveil New Greens On Golf Course, Host Member Preview Weekend
(TAMPA, FL) - Emerald Greens Golf Resort and Country Club - managed by Billy Casper Golf (BCG) - will unveil 18 new greens on its acclaimed golf course on Thursday, September 20 following a capital-enhancements project to convert them to Champion Bermuda Grass.
In May, the club began re-grassing nine holes at a time, allowing members and guests to enjoy access to the 18 holes not under construction. Some greens have received new undulations and shaping. The final nine are slated for completion next summer.
To celebrate the greens renovation, Emerald Greens will host a Member Preview Weekend from Friday, October 12 through Saturday, October 13. Prospective members will enjoy food and beverages, and can utilize the club's golf course, eight lighted tennis courts, state-of-the-art fitness center, heated outdoor pool and other amenities. Participants will be invited to the club's annual Oktoberfest event on Saturday, October 13.

"We're excited to unveil the new greens to our members and guests," says Andy Green, General Manger at Emerald Greens. "Emerald Greens' amenities and activities are fit for the entire family and represent a popular hub for socialization."
Since assuming management of Emerald Greens in October 2011, BCG has overseen other capital projects. They include re-surfacing tennis courts, adding viewing canopy at the tennis center, new lighted bocce ball courts with fire pit, new furniture and fire pit on the pool deck, new furniture and television on the outdoor patio and dining room, purchase of new golf carts and maintenance equipment, addition of a fitness room and a children's activity area to the Recreation Center building.
Recognized as one of the most welcoming communities on Florida's Gulf Coast, Emerald Greens has an impressive collection of condominiums, townhomes and vacation villas. 27 holes of championship golf, and other recreational and social amenities, meet with rave reviews from members and resort guests.
Emerald Greens is home to three, distinct nine-hole layouts - Meadow, Cypress and Pine - providing challenges to golfers of all abilities. The peaceful, Dan Maples-design rolls through pine and cypress trees with large, undulating greens, numerous water hazards and an assortment of pot and waste bunkers. Length off the tee is not vital, but each hole places a premium on strategy and accuracy.
The Meadow course boasts the signature par-3, a 158-yard forced carry over water and a bunker to a rolling green for a nerve-wracking tee shot and putt. On the Cypress nine, the 450-yard, par-4 No. 4 hole is a tough test with water left of the fairway and right of the narrow, elevated green. The finishing hole on the Pine course is a 490-yard, par-5 with golfers hitting their approach shots onto a dramatic island green.
An expansive golf practice facility with a double-side driving range and two putting and chipping greens compliment PGA instruction.
Non-golf amenities feature eight lighted tennis courts, heated outdoor swimming pool, kids splash pad area, state-of-the-art fitness center, three casual and formal dining options and event space.
The 25,000 square-foot clubhouse includes a fully-stocked pro shop, bag storage, locker rooms and The Terrace Bar and Grille. Elegant banquet facilities make Emerald Greens the perfect setting for corporate outings, weddings and other social engagements.
