1st golfers of the season
Jason Jacobs and David Shockely

Simply put, if you love nature you will love Ruth Park Golf Course, one of the best St. Louis golf courses and a fantastic place for those of us that love this classic game. Ruth Park combines the gorgeous landscapes just west of St. Louis with the timeless pleasure of golf. Since 1931 we have been a favorite destination or golfers throughout this region.

Ruth Park Golf Course, formerly known as University Golf Course, was created by the famous Scotsman Robert Foulis, a world-renowned designer responsible for many of the area's best courses. Ruth park features Zoysia grass tees and fairways, as well as bent grass greens and tree-lined, hilly terrain. It's a challenge for any golfer, but it never crosses that difficulty line that makes a course unenjoyable.

St.Louis Golf Facilities

In addition to fantastic play on the course, Ruth Park also has a wide variety of amenities, including club rental, a fully-stocked pro shop, golf club fitting, a 25-station fully-lighted practice area with grass tees and turf mats, individual or group lessons, motorized golf carts, pull carts, snack bar serving soda, beer and the best grilled franks and hamburgers in town. We also regularly host summer junior golf camps, tournaments and fundraisers.

There is a lot to like about Ruth Park Golf Course, and it's time you discovered it for yourself!
