First full round here in a while, though I practice here frequently. The new clubhouse and grill are now open too, making the course feel normal again. I really like the placement of the grill and patio overlooking the 2nd green, 9th green, 10th tee, 14th tee and 18th green. Great view of several holes. The course itself was in good shape. The greens were cut and rolled true and fairly quick. Most had lots of ball marks, but not such a crazy amount that they affected putts. I tried to fix several that were fresh on each hole. The 10th green had an odd blemish near the collar where there looked to be about 6 old cup holes filled in with sand. There were a few muddy and GUR spots, but nothing significant affecting play. All in all, tee to green, it’s in really good shape. They’ve added these red, white and blue posts to most greens. I couldn’t quite figure out the purpose – my partners seem to think it was to rest your clubs on. A few times they got in the way and we had to temporarily displace them. I would have been more concerned if I had hit an approach shot that ricocheted badly off of one. So golfer beware. Contrary to my experience at Rocky River the day before, the cart girl was seen early and often throughout our round. Pace of play was good and we had a great holiday round. I’ve played Emerald Lake more than any other course over the years since I had a membership for 2 seasons. So it’s like an old friend to me and I’ll come back often.
The red, white, and blue post are there the lean the flag on. Since it was a holiday that used the American Flag instead of the normal Emerald Lake flags they are put out to keep the American flag from being placed on the ground. They are only out on holidays such as Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day.
Well duh. I feel silly now. That makes total sense. I just wish the pro shop had said something about it or put a note on the carts. That’s pretty cool that they just do that when they have the American flag flagsticks out.
