Sunset is a wonderful blend that has the charm and elegance of an old, historic club that has been in the same wonderful south county neighborhood for over 100 years. At the same time, we have a clubhouse and facilities that have undergone significant upgrades to keep in touch with what today's club members look for when dining, entertaining, or for recreation and camaraderie. When you think of historic clubs in the St. Louis area, a few come to mind. However, only a few offer a century of golf and family entertainment comparable to Sunset.
Since 2004, Sunset began upgrading its facilities to meet the needs of a multi-generational membership for dining, social events and Club activities. Since 2009, the membership affirmed the future of the Club by investing more in its golf course, swimming complex, tennis facility and golf practice areas. We stripped the top layer of each green and seeded them with the new A1/A4 mixture; providing our members with greens that utilize the best of today’s technology. Our brand new, extensive 320-yard practice area, sitting just beyond the pool and tennis complex was also relocated in 2009 much to the happiness of our members. With four target greens, the practice area will be the longest practice facility among area private clubs. According to the USGA, we have the best fairways in the area, the best turf and some of the best green complexes in the region. Plus, with no tee times, members have the opportunity to play when they want, without worrying about having to make a tee time.
Our four Har-Tru clay tennis courts were installed in 1993 and our tennis professional, Alan Douglas, has been at the club since, mentoring to young and experienced players alike. Our pool complex, adjacent to the tennis facility and our new practice range, was opened in May 2011. The zero-entry pool, new pool and tennis house, along with large pool deck area, has made Sunset a destination to look forward to by area interclub swim teams and their parents during the summer season.
For entertainment and dining our members need not look elsewhere. Each month, the Club holds an event for our members to enjoy. Whether it’s the Club's Winter Re-Opening Party, Valentine's Day Candlelight Dinner, Easter Brunch and Dinner, Family Fun Day (Memorial Day), Father’s Day Fishing Derby, BBQ & Fireworks, 5th of July Cardboard Boat Regatta and Ribs Competition, our Fall Festival (Halloween) or a Holiday Season party, there is always something to enjoy at Sunset. In addition to our extensive recreational facilities and Club activity calendar, Sunset members enjoy an outstanding dining experience. Our Executive Chef Rod Laurentius is regarded by his peers as one of the finest chefs in St. Louis having won numerous awards.
Sunset offers our members an environment where creating the member experience is among our top goals.
Membership at Sunset remains by Invitation Only. Please contact the Club's Membership Director Jennifer Schafer for additional details.
