Glad this thread came back to life.I have notations of a number of courses that do not appear on the MacWood list noted earlier in the thread that have been attributed to Emmet from different sources.If anyone has any information on the following, I'd greatly appreciate hearing if these are misattributions, courses known by different names or mysteries that have already been cleared up:Fulton Estate (CT) - NLE, Mainly known as Hob Nob Hill, less than a mile from my house. info in earlier posts Silver Spring (CT) Clauson’s Inn fka Coonamessett GC (MA)Green Hill Yacht & CC (MD)Antlers GC (NY) - Amsterdam NY, DE enlarged it in 1922/23- now known as Rolling Hills Battle Island GC (NY)Brentwood GC (NY)Iroquois GC (NY)- info in earlier postsManhasset GC (NY)Oswego CC (NY) - Another redo of an existing course. I think his work was redone by AWT, if I"m not mistakenPawling G&CC (Design Only) (NY)- Never got built, as far as I knowSchalren CC (NY) - built for the Masons in Schenectady, NY St. Regis River GC (NY) - info in earlier postsTuscarora CC (NY)Willow Ridge f/k/a Green Meadow (NY) -info in earlier posts
Sven - Brentwood was a nine hole course. In 1924 Emmet redesigned it, w/Phil Turnesa doing the 'constructing'. The club's website lists Emmet, and I've come across a couple of articles mentioning Emmet as the architect.
Before Mark takes on creating detente between posters or figuring out the sexuality of private men who have been dead for 75 years , perhaps we can refocus on Mark's updated course list with the help of many here:http://devereuxemmetsociety.blogspot.com/2010/11/devereux-emmet-course-list.htmlAnything still missing?
Does anybody have or know of a good biography of Emmet?I've been hired by Huntington Country Club and would like to put together a biography as part of the Master Plan.Regards,Ian
Ian, what does the course really need done besides mowing out some fairway and green surfaces? I was out there last year and thought the course is delightful.
and 8 new tee's, so far...RHE
I am organizing a Devereux Emmet Society to honor this underappreciated golf course architect. I will be publishing a quarterly newsletter and plans are in the works for a spring meeting to celebrate his work.
