Walters Golf Management

Walters Golf Management ignores borders to bring great golf to the Greater St. Louis area — on both sides of the Mississippi.

We do well generally in recommending a golf course in any particular city or region. That’s “a” as in singular. Not in the St. Louis, Missouri area. Here we recommend one golf course management company – Walters Golf Management  – and its many wonderfully unique, challenging and rewarding public golf courses sprinkled throughout the Greater St. Louis area in Missouri and Illinois, known as the St. Louis Golf Trail.

Meet Me in St. Louis – for professionally-managed public golf courses, and all of the “big-city” attractions and and diversions for after your rounds.

This is the “Show Me” state, so we’re showing you Walters’ wonderful courses.

Deer, fox and a variety of birds are as common as golf carts, sand bunkers and water hazards.
