The West Course is Norwood's Championship Course. The West has a rather elite history hosted of events, boasting the 1948 PGA Championship and the 2001 USGA Senior Amateur Championship, just to name a few. At nearly 6900 yards and Par 71, it is one of the best in St. Louis. True to the 1920's (The Golden Age of Golf Architecture), it has rolling, undulating fairways and strategic contoured greens requiring accurate driving and deft iron play. The West Course is ready to challenge you and provide you with a new found appreciation and love for the game.

Hole #1


Par 4 | Handicap 11

The opening hole on the West Course requires an accurate tee shot due to strategically located fairway bunkers. Approach shots need to be played past the hole to leave an uphill putt. Green is sloped from front to back. A very fair opening hole on a golf course that gets progressively more difficult.
