Yet for all The Emerald's distinguished honors, the course was not created to be intimidating. Its 6,924 yards has a 73.8 rating from the back tees and a 71.8 rating from the blue. As Rees Jones said, "Too many courses today are being built for the one-week PGA Tournament. I like to design courses that are challenging to the typical golfers.
Carolina Pines Golf & Country Club boasts a championship 18-hole course with breathtaking views of the Neuse River, one of North Carolina's largest estuaries. The river is more than 2.5 miles wide where it meets the incredible 15th green perched atop a 30-foot bluff. The independently-owned par-72 beauty is open year round. In addition to the golf course, members enjoy a swimming pool, beach access, boat ramp, pro shop, and clubhouse with bar and dining facilities.
