Normandie Reimagined Update: Golf Course to Remain Open Into 2023

December 13, 2022
ST. LOUIS, MO:  The Metropolitan Golf Foundation (course owners) and Walters Golf Management (operators) wish to update our patrons, donors, area golfers and residents on the renovation progress of the Normandie Golf Course. Nicklaus Design has completed their design and routing of the golf course and design of the non-golf improvements are well underway with the assistance of the Lamar Johnson Collaborative (Clayco).
Over the next several weeks you will begin to see work on the golf course which will primarily focus on removal of brush and some tree work. The actual golf course construction process began with setting the date for bid submittals from interested contractors to November 1, 2022. Because of the current challenges of the construction industry and supply chain issues only two (2) firms submitted bids.  In addition, both companies that bid indicated their schedules, along with labor shortages, would not permit them to commence construction until August 2023. In light of those circumstances, and anticipating the construction schedule consistent with that timeframe, we intend to remain open until on or about August 1, 2023. Information about passholder, tournaments, senior bundles and leagues will be forthcoming. The fact is, generating revenue until construction commences is viable to the financial stability of the project. 
Fundraising remains our number one priority. We would like to thank all of those who have already contributed to this worthy community focused endeavor and encourage anyone interested in donating, please do so through the link below. It is vital that we get support from our St. Louis corporate community. This is a unique opportunity to help positively change the direction of the lives of the children of North County and beyond.
In the meantime, know we will always be good stewards of the funds provided by donors.  We will continue to be vigilant and financially sensitive to how we place orders while addressing ongoing supply chain issues. We will also work with both local and national golf course construction companies to ensure that we can build this Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course in the most affordable and financially responsible way. 
The ultimate strategy is to use the renovation of Normandie Golf Course as a catalyst for social change, by implementing community employment, scholarship opportunities, mentoring, internships, as well as golf programming. The vision of Normandie Reimagined is centered on youth and community.
