Devereux Emmet’s masterpiece at St. George’s Golf & Country Club is getting its proper due after a restoration by Gil Hanse at the turn of century, reclaiming putting surfaces and fairway width to bring back Emmet’s original intent. At just 6,408 yards St. George’s is hardly a long golf course, but it can be challenging and still incredibly fun and challenging. The course was built in response to C.B Macdonald’s National Golf Links of America. Devereux Emmet and Macdonald were good friends who worked and traveled together in the years prior to NGLA. Emmet was even one of the founding members at National. The two men had a friendly rivalry so Emmet built his own home golf course near his estate and gathered a group of investors to help him do so.
