Detailed description of Emerald At Maple Creek, The

Emerald At Maple Creek, The, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Saint Johns, Michigan. 

Emerald At Maple Creek first opened for play in 1996. The course was designed by Jerry Matthews.

The Emerald At Maple Creek course has large greens that are relatively flat. The fairways are wide, but there are a lot of trees and sand bunkers that can alter your shots. Water hazards (creeks) come into play on several holes.

Par for the course is 71. From the back tees, the course plays to 6,619 yards. From the forward tees, the course plays to 5,033 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 7, a par-5 that plays to 547 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 8, a par-3 that plays to 150 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 1, a 395 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Emerald At Maple Creek is # 10, a 317 yard par-4.

Been driving by this Jerry Matthews (Michigan native) designed course since it opened in 1996 and finally got a chance to play here. Located next to highway 127 making it a easy stop to play and get back to where you were going. This is one rolling, straight forward layout with good fairway separation that allows you to focus on your shot and landing area. The mostly elevated greens are still rolling true (7-9) despite being rain soaked the last couple of days and well protected by traps for those errant shots. The cart GPS system was very accurate in showing the hole yardages and pin placement, which was very helpful to us first timers. Myself (85/33putts) playing with golfing pal Mark P (91/34putts) both struggled with sponge soaked fairways due to recent heavy rains in the lower fairways that set-up for a few fat shots. The many slight doglegs (9) added to excitement of what view the next shot was going to be and did land in the correct area. In normal Michigan golfing season, I can see why this course is heavily played for those traveling to/from northern Michigan for the conditions and pricing. We paid $29 18/cart, playing from the tips on this 3,408yd / Par 36 Front 9 and 3,211yd / Par 36 Back 9 @ 142 slope / 72.3 rating well maintained golfing layout. I look forward in returning to enjoy the more ideal conditions that this course has to offer in warmer weather (37 degrees today) and wearing more proper golfing attire. Must put this on your list of of highway golfing spots when traveling in this area.
