Normandie Golf Club to Close for the Winter Season; Normandie 1901 will not Continue as Operator
Closure Date for the Winter Season is Anticipated to be January 13, 2020. If you would like to make a tee time prior to that date, please call the golf shop at 314-862-4884.
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.
