Harry L. Jones Sr. Golf Course


"Worth playing"

5/20/22: Review by Jonny

The last time I played this course was in 1999. It was somewhat new at the time and built on re-claimed property from a land fill. I was most impressed by the driving range and practice area for chipping and putting. Nearly every course I have gone to in the CLT area...

Fire Destroys Emerald Lake Clubhouse

      A fire destroyed Emerald Lake’s clubhouse. There is no word if the course will open for play. Read more here:

      Wow. I played 18 there yesterday afternoon and finished up about 5:00. I have 4 weeks left on my membership (before they go totally public). Was planning to use it up over the next few weeks since my family will be out of town. I’ll see if I can get up there today and talk to anybody.

      Got up there during my lunch break. The poor clubhouse is indeed totaled — most extensively in the dining area, but also enough to take out the top floor above the pro shop. I spoke with one of the staff and the owners are optimistic about re-opening next week with a temporary clubhouse. They will have to replace nearly their entire fleet of carts, though, as they were consumed in the fire. Still no word on cause, though it seems suspicious that it started in the middle of the night after so many in the neighborhood were shooting off some big fireworks. I’ll keep the site updated as I get more information.

      I talked to the pro today and he reiterated plans to re-open as soon as possible, hopefully by tomorrow (Saturday). They lost all but about 20 carts — those were in a maintenance shed. Until the backup fleet arrives, they may be running at reduced capacity. They should have a trailer clubhouse up and running within a week. Due to the extensive damage, chances for determining the cause of the fire appear to be low.

      I plan to call again later today and will try to get out to the course as soon as they re-open.

      Thanks for keeping us updated. What a crazy story. Hope to get out there soon as I love this course.

      They indeed reopened for play this afternoon. I went out and played 18. Course is still in fine shape. They will have a limited set of carts (15-20) until mid-next week when they should also have a new trailer clubhouse.

      The pro said it will likely take a year to rebuild the clubhouse. He also mentioned that while there’s still no official cause for the fire, they said that it started on the roof. So those fireworks theories will live on.

      I posted a couple of pics on my Twitter account here:

      It was definitely weird driving up #9, but it ! was also good to be back out there.
