A company official commented that “the efforts and energies put into maintaining the 118-year-old property and the required capital improvements have just become more significant than the
business can sustain”.

We would like to thank all of its loyal customers, employees as well as former owners and operators for keeping this St. Louis golf landmark operational for all of these years.
