Past Champions
      Course Overview

      Although St. Louis Country Club was founded in 1892, it wasn't until 1914 when the club had relocated farther west that noted architect Charles Blair Macdonald designed the current golf course, which will measure 6,190 yards (par 71) for the 2014 Curtis Cup Match.

      St. Louis Country Club became the first club west of the Mississippi River to host the U.S. Amateur (1921) and U.S. Women’s Amateur (1925). Jesse Guilford won the U.S. Amateur and a young Bob Jones lost in the quarterfinals. Glenna Collett Vare claimed the 1925 championship for the second of her record six U.S. Women’s Amateur titles.


      Championship Facts

      PAR AND YARDAGE: St. Louis Country Club will be set up at 6,190 yards and play to a par of 35-36—71.

      WHAT IS THE CURTIS CUP: The Curtis Cup Match is contested by female amateur players, one team from the United States of America and one team composed of players from England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The teams consist of not more than eight players and a captain. The Match is conducted every two years, alternately in the USA and in Great Britain and Ireland.

      ABOUT THE CLUB: St. Louis Country Club was formed in 1892, and the current golf course was designed in 1914 by renowned golf course architect Charles Blair Macdonald, who also designed National Golf Links of America, the host for the 2013 Walker Cup Match. The 18-hole “St. Louis” course has been restored to its original 1914 design after being slightly altered prior to the 1947 U.S. Open.
