Featured Golf Course Review:
Emerald Lakes Golf Center -- The nicest 9 hole around
Review by: Morris Emerald Lakes is a fun little course that provides the basic golf experiance to the younger golfers in the Elk Grove area. The course has many hazards, including hole 5 which is as good as an island hole as you could get at any 9 hole course. The Course tends to be real hard in the summer and extremely wet during the winter. Give the grass at least 3 or 4 days to soak up water after a hard rain or you'll be chipping out of the mud on most holes. Overall, the course provides just enough amusement to keep the low end golfers happy, while aslo providing a great practice facility including a driving range, chipping green, and putting green. The bottom line, this is the best 9 hole course in the Elk Grove Area.

Dairy Creek Golf Course -- Above-average muni course, short but heavily slopped.
Review by: Rob Weeks Normally maintained in a very playable condition, but beware of late summer when local weather leads to much drier conditions. When this happens it can be impossible to keep the ball in the fairway because of the slope regardless of where your tee shot lands. Afternoons can also be very windy at this location. This is a fairly young course without much in the way of trees, so almost any location on most holes is playable - it is difficult to get into any real trouble and therefore a great course for higher handicap players, the only exception being the environmentally protected areas which are out of bounds. The course is a bit short, even from the blue tees. Low handicap golfers can find themselves with several eagle putts during their round. Greens are normally in good shape, typical speed for a muni course, but the breaks can be very deceiving. They break toward the canyons regardless of how they might appear to breaking.
