Comments: This is a very old club in St. Louis with a rich history. The east course is challenging but fair. I have shot as low as an 80 but as high as a 96. The east course plays a bit shorter and, the gross overall scores are therefore, a little lower - so you will feel better about your game. I think the east course has a couple of the hardest holes on the course. In particular, I am not fond of the 2 par 3's on the back. I think they (the greens) are ridiculously hard. I can't tell you how often I have been on the green and 4 putted. And, on 17, it is next to impossible to reach the green in regulation (for someone who drives 210 yards). I would surround the green with sand traps and make it a par 5. After playing many public course recently, I have found that Norwood's roughs add 5 to 7 strokes per round to my game. I would prefer that they were a little shorter and less thick.
