Sapphire and Emerald
Annual Masters Sunday Driver Golf Trip
Just returned from our second visit to Hill Valley on our now annual golf trip, as usual we played the short Sapphire course, on completion we checked in to the hotel.
We were greeted with the warmest of welcomes from the reception staff special thanks to Michelle, Nikki and Christine for their patience and excellent customer service.
The food was excellent as usual, everyone in our group complemented the quality of cuisine and the restaurant staff, again special thanks to Steph who attended to our table for the evening meal and the breakfast staff Debbie and the senior serve Bernard, very professional and informative especially about the famous black pudding from the isle of Stornoway. which was excellent. Bar staff Annalisa and a special thanks to Ian for looking after us in the Masters bar, thanks for going that extra mile to make sure we were looked after on Sunday night watching Bubba win his second Masters.
Finally not forgetting the Pro shop staff Matt and Andrew for their exceptional service although we were only a small group of 12.
I can only thank you for your exceptional staff for their professionalism and whatever your training program is do not change it,
See you next April

I played Emerald course on Jun 17th 2010. At last a course with good greens.
Was tired of bumpy greens but this course had lots of grass on greens.
A very good golf course IMO with some tree lined fairways.
But a lot of the bunkers were bad - very little sand.

Played the Emerald course in Oct 2008 and really enjoyed it. The course was in superb condition, is well laid out, with fairway markers at 100,1 50 and 200 yds which i liked. A lot of tree lined holes so can be easy to get into trouble off the tee. An easy walking course which would be ideal for a weekend break as the facilities are top class. A course i'd definitely play again.

Just returned from a golf break at Hill Valley and wanted to praise the hotel, staff and golf courses. Being a Macdonald hotel, the quality is very high and the staff were all very friendly and polite. 10 out of 10. We played both courses and found them to be real tests. Despite this being the start of Autumn, the conditions of the courses were fantastic (although a leaf blower would have been appreciated on the greens by the early morning greenkeepers). The Emerald doesn't play as long as its yardage suggests but is a good test. The Sapphire is a strategic course - I used my driver 3 times off the tee. Of course, I would play it different if I had played a few times before but that's the thrill of playing new courses. On our experience, it was a very worthwhile venue and we would have no hesitation in recommending it.
Ged (Pre 2010)

The Emerald course is superb. The greens are well kept and the whole course beautifully manicured. A good test of golf. The Sapphire course is disappointing. It is poorly maintained and more of an obstacle course than a golf course. Such a pity.
Keith Boxall (Pre 2010)

Fantastic course at superb value. I would definitely join as a member if i lived closer.
Tom Dunn (Pre 2010)

Playing on the Saphire course at Hill Valley was a completely enjoyable experience. From the phone call to book a tee time to the final stroke to achieve a par on the 18th. The friendly staff in the pro shop were more than helpful. The course played well and I wasn't held up even when catching up with a group in front on two occasions who were more than happy to let me play through. 10 of out 10 for the whole experience.
