The partnership will include financial support, charity and tournament alignment, and investments to help make golf more diverse and inclusive in North St. Louis County and beyond.
Complementing it, it includes a significant investment in the effort to restore and revitalize Normandy, one of the oldest public golf courses west of the Mississippi.
The option to purchase the University of Missouri system real estate has been exercised, and the project is scheduled to be groundbreaking this fall. Nicklaus Design, headquartered in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, will lead the renovation, with Normandie eventually becoming a signature Jack Nicklaus golf course.
Additionally, Normandy will be included as a potential qualifying site for the new ACC Ascension Classic and Advocates Professional Golf Association Tour presented by Daugherty Business Solutions, with the option of possibly hosting the APGA Tour Ascension Classic in future, as well as other ACC Pro-Am outings.
