About Glen Echo Country Club
Established in 1901, Glen Echo is the oldest, continually running country club and golf course west of the Mississippi River. It is also the oldest, continuously operating Olympic venue in the world. Glen Echo opened to glowing reviews as the first, complete 18-hole golf course in St. Louis and is without a doubt the most historic private club in the area. Glen Echo became world renown when it hosted the Olympic Golf Championships in 1904. Like all country clubs of that era, Glen Echo was home to high society, their family, and friends. The grounds and clubhouse set the stage as the backdrop to weddings, galas and private socials for some of the most prominent names in St. Louis history.
