Neat Course

Classic old course that had a lot of tall trees that were like magnets for my left to right flight path. Course was a little rough in places but a good value. Great old school style course...Everyone should play it

Fun round at a great value on GolfNow

It’s a fun course in fair condition. Fairways are nice and greens are good enough. Layout is okay, it’s not boring. A lot of blind tee shots and some interesting par 5s and 3s. A couple cool par 4s. Maintenance of course seems a little negligent but even so the course is still in good condition. I highly recommend for a good price! (~$35 for the weekends and ~$20 for the weekdays)

Needs Better Maintenance and Appropriate Pricing

The people working there were very nice, I’ll give them that. Condition was very poor, tee to green. If they charged $25 peak I wouldn’t complain but for $45 much more should be expected. The layout is somewhat interesting and very tough, which made the the bare lies even worse. The greens were hard to putt on, very bumpy through dead patches and inconsistent speed throughout. If they were priced appropriately I would call it an okay budget course but for what they charge I’d say look elsewhere.

Absolutely horrible

The fairways were dirt, the tee boxes were mud/dirt and no grassc the greens were 50/50, pace of play was horrible. Backed up on every tee, the cartpaths were a joke. There were potholes or just gravel on a ton of them. There were also weeds on the greens. Save your money and play somewhere else.

Solid Course, Terrible Pace

I played with a 4 some on Saturday. It was an amazing day so I knew it would be slow. I was anticipating a 5 hour round. After the front 9 we were locked in at 3 hours. We waited essentially every time we needed to hit a ball. The group behind us left and just skipped multiple holes. I've played Normandie a dozen or so times. I don't think you'll find more challenging greens for a public course and the conditions are very good for the amount of traffic. The issue is that there is a lack of public courses that are worth your time in STL, so courses like Normandie get a lot of attention. I also think it's fairly challenging and there are a ton of trees to hit which can make high handicap golfers even slower. I haven't been able to put my finger on what makes this course so slow but it's consistent. The guys in the group ahead of us said they only play the course when they have to due to poor pace of play. This didn't ruin my day at all but something needs to be done to speed up pace. Either don't book the course with so many tee times or keep a Marshall on the course or don't book so many tee times and stagger things so golfers are tee'd off on 2 before someone starts on one. Other courses figure this out, I play all of them but for some reason Normandie can't. I also think due to the hills and slope there are a numbers of blind drives or blind second shots on both the front and back 9. There needs to be a red light/green light board at the top of the hills that golfers flip for the next group when they move on to their 3rd shots. Driving to the top of the hill and coming back down to the tee box to make sure you aren't going to hit someone is silly and further slows things down.

Love the rock

I always enjoy playing “The Rock”. Course isn’t in the best shape but it’s always a blast. A lot of the tee boxes seem like they are under repair... Front 9 is in a lot better shape than the back 9.

Needs a major influx of cash to be good again

This course itself is a decent design and has tons of character. Quite a bit of amazing tree lines but the condition is horrible...a real dirt track. Spend the extra money and go somewhere else.

Normandie Zoysia Struggling

Great layout and greens in good shape but, wow, the zoysia grass in the fairways was in rough shape. it was all going to seed and maybe they need it to. perhaps that is only way to restore lots of bare spots in the fairways.
