We Have a Rich and Proud History, Deeply Rooted in the American Union Movement.

Here at Emerald Greens Golf Course, our roots are planted deeply with the Plumbers and Pipefitters Eastern Missouri Local 562. It was 562 union leaders decades ago who envisioned a campus-like setting for not only their work, but for recreational endeavors — even for a retirement option for it retirees.

In the 1960's, Lawrence Callahan and “Doc” Lawler were the business managers for 562. 
Lawrence had a dream to have a property for union members that would include a country club, pool, health center and union offices all on one property. Straight away, all of that dream came to fruition except for the golf course. Through the years it also came to include fishing, swimming, and picnicking.
 
The union moved along for a few decades with a facility that was the envy of many companies – not just the other local unions.  For a time the campus even included a retirement center for its retired members.
 
The 1990s brought in a new business manager who decided it was time to build the golf course. Jim Cochran Sr. was hired to design and build the course and run the golf operation. So it was that Emerald Greens opened 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 a union affiliation.
