2020 Kickoff Event at Norwood Hills Country Club

On Monday, October 28th, Amateur Players Tour traveled to Norwood Hills Country Club. The West Course has a rather elite history hosted events, boasting the 1948 PGA Championship, the 2001 USGA Senior Amateur Championship and the 2018 USGA Women's Mid-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 1920s (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 newfound appreciation and love for the game.
