Welcome to your preview of Glen Echo Country Club!
We are so happy you have decided to explore membership opportunities with us, and look forward to spending some time with you soon. In the meantime, we hope this gives you some insight into who we are and why so many members call Glen Echo home.
Looking back to the start of golf in St. Louis, not many can say they were there from the beginning. We are one of the proud few. Opening in 1901, Glen Echo Country Club is the oldest golf club west of the Mississippi and has been in continuous operation at the same location.. However, it wasn’t until 1904 that Glen Echo would achieve something no other country club in the US had before, nor has done since—host Olympic Golf Games. Under the leadership of the Club’s first president, Col. George S. McGrew, the club would rise into the forefront of the Golf World during those Third Olympic Games.
While the Club is rooted in rich history that we treasure, we are looking towards the future and sharing our love for the game.
Over the year’s we have enjoyed being a part of the transition of the game from that of a privileged, elite class to a mainstream sport that all may take part in. We enjoy providing a comfortable, enjoyable atmosphere for a diverse membership to enjoy pristine golf facilities, dynamic tennis programming, a vibrant pool setting, topped off with a variety of dining options to meet each and every need. And if that wasn’t enough, within our expansive clubhouse, members are able to host events in a room suited to their particular needs, knowing their Glen Echo Team will be on hand to take care of every detail.
We invite you to come experience firsthand the warm and welcoming nature of the Glen Echo Membership and Staff. We look forward to your visit to show you our hidden gem and welcome you into our Glen Echo Family!
