The staff was very friendly and it was a perfect day. The course was a little rough but it is still early April so I hope it will shape up .It was cart path only but speed of play was not a problem. I will play again later in the spring and hope it has filled in better.

I was extremely impressed with the course layout. I thought it was extremely clever and pretty difficult. You have to be accurate off the tee, if you're not it's likely a penalty stroke as many fairways are lined with trees or water. The greens have some nice slope as well, so putting was a challenge. I'm only in my second season of golf so I'm not a great golfer, so for me it was a challenge. I had a great deal from Golf Now so I played for $20 bucks, which is an incredible value. I wouldn't have been as happy if I paid $40 for the round. I was disappointed with the Tee boxes, the grass was terrible, they were messy and just didn't look good at all. The fairway grass was poor as well, but it's winter so i expected that. I was surprised to see the grass torn up on some greens. To really judge the course I'll need to come back in the summer. I think it's a great course design and one that all golfers in the area should at least check out. I'll be back to try to improve my score.

I have played golf at Quail Creek GC a number of times due to its proximity to my home. It's a challenging course that rewards accuracy, as there is a lot of water, trees, creeks, hills, slopes and sand bunkers that reward strategic play (well placed drives and layups.)

Amenities: The course has a small driving range and a putting green for pre-round practice, but currently half of the putting green is out of commission. The course also has a nice clubhouse with excellent views, pro shop and indoor dining. The check-in progress was quick and friendly.

I played in late March, which isn't the best time to play here as the grass has not yet awoken from it's dormant state. The second problem is this course does not handle lots of rain very well, and the course was saturated, leading to cart paths only, little roll in the fairways and mandatory clean & place. Normally I would not have played there after that much rain, but with golf now non-refundable deals, I had to play. That said, I look forward to returning this summer once the fairways green up and thicken up.

Quail Creek is as good of a laid out course in the Saint Louis area I have found. I am glad to see that they are cutting trees and making an effort to improve the course this winter. With the huge dead spots on nearly every green and the poor shape the tees are in, they have their work cut out for them. Hopefully Quail becomes more competitive in price and quality of course soon. This course has enormous potential and I hope their efforts to fix it go well.

Haven't played there in several years even those it is the closest course to my home.(7 miles) Remember why, cart path only,(little rain in 2 weeks) the greens were horrible(had a mild weather). The only improvement I noted was the staff was friendly, they once had nothing but grumpy old men and I'm 68.

I have been writing bad reviews on this course for some time now due to the available resources it has, and the unbelievable choices it makes in doing anything that would possibly really make an improvement. So let me begin, the course continues to fall into disrepair in its 5th or 6th year with this new group, it looked positive for a while but in the last 3-4 years has nose dived as the worst of what could be the best. The lack of effort to turn the course around is evident, and obvious. After having this amount of time with a super, you should figure out how to grow grass and get rid of weeds. The course has been with out a full putting green for at least 3 years and the one they started three years ago is still not even half way finished. Could it be the weather, bad seed, too much sun? No, lets just chalk it up to mis-management and ignorance. At this point I can only hope St. Louis county has a short term lease so someone with some knowledge of basics standards of the business steps in and turns the ship around. You see the responses from the course about thanks for you response, and try us again, but that is the same stuff they said two years ago and last year. The county needs to look at the product they are giving the residents and not be such a hands off entity, they could change the whole thing if they really wanted to. Think I need to start writing the parks and county to see some changes that really need to happen.

Course was a little soggy since it had rained 3" the night before so played really long. The Bermuda is not my favorite playing surface, but it has grown in pretty well. I imagine it will be brown shortly. Over all I enjoyed my round.

I grew up playing this course in high school and college. It was always in great condition then. Fast forward to today. And before I begin, the staff is doing a great job on customer service, but they are trying to squeeze every golfer out there possible at the detriment to pace and course quality.

Fairways are long, slow, and lots of crabgrass is invading.

Greens - never before have I had to adjust my speed based on how much grass vs. dirt is in my line. Huge spots of dirt, barely any areas of good solid green bigger than a 6 foot diameter. Just very, very bad.

Quail Creek - make an investment. Stop piling people out there adding traffic. Keep the traffic down. Don't let people play music loudly. It's becoming a complete dump out there. Seriously.

We paid 27 each and I feel it was at least 7 dollars too much.
