John A. "Jack" Emich, the charismatic golf aficionado for years recognized as "Mr. Golf" of Maryland, died yesterday of prostate cancer at his Roland Park home, across the road from the original Baltimore Country Club. He was 83. A Baltimore native, Mr. Emich traced his love for golf to his youth, caddying for his father on a Baltimore public course, known then as Hillsdale and later Forest Park.

Hundreds of Roland Park residents packed a community meeting last night to hear Keswick Multi-Care representatives promote their plans to build a facility for the elderly, but few were persuaded by the company's arguments. Keswick administrators and project architects told the crowd at Roland Park Elementary School that the $195 million proposal would not increase traffic in the neighborhood and would leave undeveloped most of the 17 acres being acquired for the project. Baltimore Country Club is planning to sell the land to Keswick for $12.5 million.

About 30 Roland Park residents waved signs yesterday outside the Baltimore Country Club, urging the club's members to scrap plans that would sell off 17 acres of its property to a care facility. Neighborhood leaders say they have collected hundreds of signatures opposing the club's proposal to sell the property, north of Hillside Road, to Keswick Multi-Care Center, which plans to build a $195 million continuing-care retirement community. The residents acknowledge that the club has the right to sell its land but protested by holding multicolored signs saying such things as "Save the Park in Roland Park" and "Keep Roland Park Green" as club members drove into the facility for a meeting.
