Summer renovation at the Emerald

By SD

The Emerald Golf Club in New Bern, North Carolina, will close for a predicted eight weeks this summer in order for renovations to take place.

The course will close on July 5, and it is hoped will reopen by the end of August, should work go ahead as planned.

The majority of the renovation work will involve the replacing of the current Penncross Bentgrass with Champion hybrid bermuda grass.

2,000 tress near the course’s greens are also being removed.

The 6,924 yard Emerald course was designed by Rees Jones and opened in 1988.

The club has announced it will be arranging rounds of golf at other courses in the area for its members.
