Detailed description of Emerald Greens Golf Course, CLOSED 2018

Emerald Greens Golf Course is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Saint Louis, Missouri.

Emerald Greens Golf Course first opened for play in 1994. The course was designed by Jim Cochran Sr.

Emerald Greens Golf Course offers enough variety to challenge all skill levels of golfer. The front nine plays through a wooded area that is hilly, and the back nine resembles a links-style design where shot placement is critical. The greens are firm and undulating. Water hazards (lakes) come into play on six holes. The signature hole is #18, a 506-yard, par 5, featuring water hazards coming into play on both the tee and approach shots.

Plumbers and Pipefitters Eastern Missouri Local 562 union leaders decades ago envisioned a campus-like setting for not only their work but for recreational endeavors and even for a retirement option for it retirees. A big part of that dream was fulfilled with the opening of Emerald Greens Golf Course on August 10, 1994, for the enjoyment of union members and public play, too.

Today the crowning jewel of the Union's campus is the 18 holes of Emerald Greens, a gorgeous golf course that wraps around the 400-acre campus. All golfers are welcome to Emerald Greens,  with or without union affiliation.

Blue tees: par-70, 6,277 yards, 70.9 / 129
White tees: par-70, 5,856 yards, 69.6 / 125

Red tees: par-70, 4,854 yards, 68.1 / 123

The course closed in 2018.

The Saint Louis Zoo is expanding. The zoo is purchasing the United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 562's 425-acre complex in north St. Louis County near the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, which includes the Emerald Greens Golf Course. They plan on developing the property to care for threatened and endangered animals. The $7.1 million to purchase the land came through "philanthropic gifts intended for procurement of this property. No taxpayer dollars were used."
