Normandie to Remain Open for 2022
For Immediate Release
November 19, 2021
Normandie Announcement and Update
We wanted to take this opportunity to update our patrons, the golf community at large and 24:1 communities on the progress of the Nicklaus and Normandie Project. Jack Nicklaus visited the property in late summer and spent a substantial amount of time reviewing the property, golf course, routing and its potential. He was very impressed with the manner the golf course was routed on a piece of property with limited acreage by today’s design standards. It was truly amazing to watch him work through golf shots, design elements and player experience all in his head, his vision is remarkable.
The work necessary to embark on a project of this magnitude takes time. While many of us wish for it to be completed as rapidly as possible, doing things the right way and with the proper strategy is paramount. We have taken the time to ensure that these crucial items were completed step by step.
Our fundraising efforts are now in full swing, and we are working with the corporate community to convey the message and vision for the project. We are very thankful to our initial group of significant donors. These companies and individuals have provided the financial foundation to launch the project. There will be a time in the near future for those golf enthusiasts in the St. Louis region to join the effort by contributing to this worthy cause.
The decision has been made that during this period of fundraising, the golf course will remain open to the public for the 2022 golf season. Information on Season Passes, Senior Bundles and Tournament dates will be released this month.
The excitement continues to grow as this project moves toward a reality. When it was originally announced that the greatest golfer of all time had joined the effort, it took the project to a place no one could have expected. It is now time to complete the fundraising and make our dream a reality.
Be patient, stay tuned and continue to support Normandie the way you always have. For more information on or to support of the Normandie Golf Course project contact Curt Rohe, Executive Director, MAGA at /Blog/387186 or (314) 567-MAGA.
