There is a depth of history at Westwood Country Club, both in its founding as a club for the St. Louis Jewish population nearly a century ago, as well as the multitude of names who have come through to tinker with its golf course since. The course was initially designed by the professional Harold Paddock, and Bill Diddell made major adjustments decades later.

Art Schaupeter completed a bunker renovation for the club in the late 1990s, while working with Keith Foster and he returned twenty years later to perform a second bunker renovation. “I am very happy about the improved visual impact of the bunkers on the golfing experience,” said Schaupeter. “The members have been amazed at how visible they are now, even as you gaze across the property from the various high spots. It has completely changed the visual character of the course.”

In the mid-20th century Westwood hosted a number of important regional events, including the Western Open. In 1938 Ralph Guldahi won by seven shots to claim his third successive Western title and in 1952 Lloyd Mangrum eased to victory by eight shots from South Africa’s Bobby Locke.

Still, holes such as No. 17, which plays to two separate fairways, is divided by Deer Creek across the middle. The safer route of the two will give little chance of reaching the green in two, but those who chance the creek may be afforded a scoring opportunity.
