Did you know?

Bellerive Country Club originally opened as a 9-hole course in north St Louis in 1897. It was called the St Louis Field Club. In 1910, the club moved to nearby Normandy and was renamed as Bellerive Country Club, after Louis St Ange de Bellerive, who in 1765 was the last French governor of Illinois and last French commander in North America. In 1959, the club moved to its current site in the suburb of Town and Country. The new course was dubbed the “Green Monster of Ladue.” | In 1965, Bellerive became the “youngest” course to ever host the US Open. South African Gary Player won the event, and completed his career grand slam. The ’65 Open was the first of many national and world championships to be held at Bellerive (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Bellerive).
