Tarlton is providing preconstruction and general contracting services for the reimagining of St. Louis landmark Tower Tee into a 27-acre golf and recreation complex set to open next year in South St. Louis.
The cornerstone of the new Tower Tee Golf Complex will be a 6,000-square-foot clubhouse with a welcome desk, indoor training facility and lounge area. The team will construct two single-level driving range structures, a two-story driving range structure, covered practice tee boxes, a new nine-hole golf course (in place of the former 18-hole course), an expanded outdoor training area, concession area and two covered outdoor patios.
For non-golfers, the facility will feature a new miniature golf course, bocce courts, playground, batting cages and a course for foot golf, golf played with a soccer ball.
Site work began in spring 2020, with construction to follow, starting in July. Completion is slated for February 2021.
Tower Tee originally opened in 1963 and was a favorite South St. Louis recreation destination. After its closing in 2018, enthusiastic area residents lobbied to keep the land available for redevelopment of a similar venue. Tarlton is thrilled to be part of this project.
