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 and construction is in full swing, with completion slated for February 2021. FGM Architects is the project architect.
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.
