Best Public Golf Course St. Louis 2000 - Forest Park
Talk about pressure. What course in town makes the holes in your game as plain as Forest Park's? You drive along Skinker Boulevard, as the traffic runs by, with cars full of folks watching you play. The Forest Park course was built in 1912 by the architect Robert Foulis, who also designed the courses at Glen Echo Country Club and Normandie Golf Club, among other courses. More than 100,000 golfers play the Forest Park course annually. It has a layout of 27 holes, including the Dwight D. Eisenhower nine-hole course. And what clubhouse can match the one at Forest Park, which includes the clock tower from the old Lindell Railway Pavilion, which operated as a station and a clock at the time of the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition?
