The East Course at Norwood Hills has remained relatively unchanged since it's inception in 1922, giving it a very classic feel that is unrivaled in the Midwest. The Greens are artfully sculpted making them some of the most interesting in St. Louis. Although shorter than the West Course, the yardage is deceiving. The Course plays to Par 69 over varied terrain coupled with undulating greens, making this a true shot-maker's course and a challenge for golfers of all abilities.

Hole #1


Par 4 | Handicap 17

The ideal tee shot on this short opening Par 4 should be up the left center. Longer hitters will have a short pitch to the green. Any tee shots that don’t reach the top of the hill will leave a blind second shot. A relatively flat green with bunkers short left and a chipping area to the right.

East vs. West Interesting Fact:

In 1996 the Missouri Senior's played a two day event at Norwood, and the outcome surprised more than a few of those who competed. Day one was played from the Blue tees on the West, playing approximately 6,300 yards with a slope of 128, while the second day had the competitors play from the Gold tees on the East, playing at 6,006, also with a slope of 128. The outcome: the average score on the East, despite the significant yardage difference, was 4 strokes higher than the West.
