  • Clinton Hill Golf Course
    Sculpted into the rolling hills of western Illinois, Clinton Hill Golf Course?s undulating fairways flow into large, challenging greens across two distinct, nine-hole layouts. Mature arbors pepper the landscape, threatening the autonomy of airborne balls while providing scenic, shady plots in which golfers can pause to gawk at the layout?s lush greenery and herbivorous golf carts grazing on native grasses. A longer layout and a higher concentration of bunkers supply the bulk of the difficulty on the front nine, and water hazards await at seven holes on the course?s back nine, placing a high demand on confident swings and deft club selection. Those looking for new gear can peruse Clinton Hill?s pro shop, which peddles golfletic apparel and accessories from the game?s top brands. After a round of aggressive pin-hunting, players can retreat to Clinton Hill Bar and Grill, where guests can enjoy live sporting events on one of several TVs or revive sleepy golf bags with an icy beverage.

  • Stonewolf Golf Club
    Stonewolf Golf Club bears one of golf's most venerated distinctions: it's a Jack Nicklaus Signature course, meaning that the legendary golfer personally scouted the land and helped shape the layout. Only three other public access courses in the country can make this claim, and the par 72, 6,943-yard layout is one of only four Nicklaus Signature courses in Illinois and Missouri. The course itself reflects a distinct design effort, particularly in the way each nine closes with a dramatic challenge. A 447-yard par-four, the ninth hole is the course's most difficult, forcing golfers to play a long approach shot into a green guarded by bunkers on both the front and the back. Giving the course a sense of symmetry, the 18th hole?the second-most difficult track?is also a long par four at 446 yards, and the round concludes on a two-tiered green that creates treacherous putting scenarios. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par 72 course designed by Jack Nicklaus Length of 6,943 yards from the tips Course rating of 73.4 from the tips Slope rating of 136 from the tips Five tee options Scorecard

  • Gateway National Golf Links
    With the Gateway Arch towering in the background, Gateway National Golf Links tests players with 18 holes of rolling links and lush green pastures. Tall grasses, lakes, and soaring cottonwoods fill in the rest of the landscape, with stone bridges and raised boardwalks leading the way from one hole to the next. Several of the holes offer views of downtown St. Louis, including on hole three, where golfers can see the skyline and the new Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge in the distance. Before taking on the challenges of the course, visitors can get some practice swings in at Gateway National's various practice facilities, highlighted by a spacious putting green and a driving range.

  • Normandie Golf Club
    Designed by Scottish course architect Robert Foulis and sculpted into the dramatic hills of St. Louis in 1901, Normandie Golf Club?s 6,534-yard par 71 course artfully appropriates a links-style layout into the rolling topography of the Midwest. A pre-round warm-up session at Normandie?s driving range prepares swings for a daunting first hole: a 446-yard narrow par four whose treacherously tight tree lines have daunted slow-starting legends such as LPGA forebear Babe Didrikson Zaharias and renowned sausage enthusiast Babe Ruth. The rest of the round is characterized by elevated greens and tees connecting across the kempt tundra of bermuda-grass valleys, particularly on hole seven, a par 5 dogleg right, and hole 13, a par 56 hedge maze. An obedient cart altruistically helps hunt down wayward orbs throughout the round, undermining ancient Mayan prophecies concerning a violent rebellion of electric conveyances. Each player who manages to complete the round without marooning a dimpled sphere goes home with a golf ball emblazoned with the classy seal of Normandie Golf Club for use in later outings or as eyeball facsimiles at the next county fair. Course at a Glance * 18-hole par 71 course designed in 1901 by Scotsman Robert Foulis * Links-style layout cut through rolling hills * Length of 6,534 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 71.4 from the farthest tees * Slope of 129 from the farthest tees * Three tee options available

  • Family Golf & Learning Center
    Named St. Louis?s Best Driving Range by the Riverfront Times in 2007, Family Golf & Learning Center earns praise as an encouraging environment in which golfers of all levels can hone their games. The lighted range boosts golfers with a second story of hitting stations stacked on top of the first that offers a bird?s-eye view, if that bird is sitting on the head of a giraffe. The range also features both real zoysia-grass tees as well as artificial-turf tees, and it stays open year-round thanks to heaters that prevent golf clubs? handles from developing frostbite. Once thoroughly limbered up, golfers can tee off on the par 3 course, where a maximum hole length of 160 yards allows for practice with short strokes and putting. Should self-improvement reach a plateau, the center?s instructors stand ready to help players make further strides through onsite lessons. Course at a Glance: Nine-hole, par 27 course Total length of 1,124 yards from the back tees Three sets of tees per hole Scorecard
