Detailed description of Normandie Golf Course, Closed 2020

Normandie Golf Course, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Saint Louis, Missouri

Built in 1901, historic Normandie Golf Course is the oldest Public golf course West of the Mississippi River that is still in operation in it's original location, The course was designed in St. Louis by Robert Foulis, a disciple of Old Tom Morris of St. Andrews, Scotland fame

The course is an old style walkable somewhat hilly course and a delight to play. With its unique routing and throwback style, Normandie is a classic golfing gem. This old championship course has numerous hills and trees. The signature hole is #18, a 250-yard, par 3, with out-of-bounds stakes along the left side of the fairway.

Blue tees, par-71, 6,534 yards

White tees, par-71, 5,990 yards

Red tees, par-77, 4,899 yards

The course closed January 13, 2020

The decision has been made to close Normandie Golf Club for the winter season and its present operator, Normandie 1901, LLC has provided notice under its lease with the University of Missouri Curators (University) that it does not plan to continue under its present lease agreement. A company official commented that “the efforts and energies put into maintaining the 118-year-old property and the required capital improvements have just become more significant than the
business can sustain”.

The golf course has a long and storied history and has provided memorable and enjoyable golf experiences for well over a century. We would like to thank all of its loyal customers, employees as well as former owners and operators for keeping this St. Louis golf landmark operational for all of these years. The short and long-term future of the golf course has not yet been defined and will be announced at a later date. The lessee and the lessor, the University are
currently working on the transition

Many have purchased Annual Passes and Pre purchased rounds for the 2020 Season. We are presently working on the protocol to return these fees and purchasers can expect a refund prior to January 31,2020.

In addition, a four year effort to devise a plan for a philanthropic use of the golf course, which utilized the resources of key allied associations and local corporations, was recently dismissed by the University.

A challenging course with narrow, tree-lined fairways and lots of rolling hills, but could use some more maintenance. Greens were in good shape but fairways were on the rough side. There had been a recent heavy rain and the traps were basically washed out and muddy - we played them as ground-under-repair. The 18th hole, a par 3, is a killer - 245 yards from the white tees!

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Worse than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Course is experiencing some deterioation of a couple of greens (using secondary target green) primarily due to the weather which has been atrocious.
