Opening in

For over 60 years, St. Louis Premier Swim and Tennis Club

A brief history of the club:

Cool Dell was founded in 1956 as C&D Realty Company by a group of Monsanto Chemical Company employees being led by Art Schlesinger. The “C” and “D” stood for “Carmen” and “Dietrich”, the two main roads that intersect near the property. A small pool opened in the summer of 1957. In 1960, a not-for-profit club was established that managed the pool. The club was named Cool Dell in homage to C&D Reality. Over the past 65 years, Cool Dell has established a rich tradition in the West County community for being a social club, a place to swim, hang out, soak in the sun, and for having the best swim and dive program for a club of our size anywhere in the area.
