Much of the character of The Country Club of St. Albans stems from its magnificent surroundings. The natural beauty of rolling hills, wooded terrain, valleys, lakes and natural wildlife completed the design with a true reverence for the rich history of the area.
In 1988, 5,400 acres were purchased surrounding the village of St. Albans. The dream was to develop homes and a country club in 8 to 10 years. The St. Albans property bears many symbols of the past, from Civil War era graves that dot the property to the striking stone homes designed by Theodore Link, famed architect of St. Louis Union Station. Designers meticulously preserved these historic remnants and created the unique tapestry of St. Albans.
In 1991, the award-winning architectural firm of Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish were selected to design and build the Lewis and Clark course. The course and the prestigious St. Albans clubhouse opened in November of 1992. Our second course, Tavern Creek was designed by the golf architectural team of Dr. Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry and opened in June of 1997.
Our award-winning course designers embraced the natural surroundings preserving natural habitats for hundreds of wildlife and plant species that call St. Albans home. A visit to the Country Club of St. Albans is a retreat to an unspoiled reserve safeguarded for generations to come.
