Played on a Sunday in less than 3.5 hours I am a 10 handicap and my GF is new to the game. Course especially the greens was in great shape. I was surprised with it being a public course. Reminds me of a poor mans Donald Ross course with the small greens. Looks easier than it is. But every hole demanded an accurate tee shot as well as an accurate approach if you wanted to make par. If you roll off the fairway a few feet your likely to have a tree in your way on your second shot. You also need be conservative on chip shots do you don't roll off. Very fun course though. Would like to play again. Also a nice practice range.

The course was in great shape. This place has really picked up its game in the last few years. The weather was unseasonably mild for July in mid-Missouri and the course wasn't crowded at all.

Played the course twice during 1 week stay in Osage Beach. Pro Shop staff very congenial, flexible and accommodating. Course enjoyable and fun to play even with dormancy at the this time of year.<br/> Greens were in good condition and very playable for this time of year. Would return for 'good bang for the buck'.

The course has nice fairways and yardage markers that are easily visible in case you don't carry a rangefinder. The roughs were mowed nicely. Fairways could've been a little shorter, but understandable for this time of year. Good experience. Not too easy, not too hard. Would go back today if I could.

Virtually no bunkers or traps. One water hole on a par 3. A few challenging golf holes. The greens putted very fast with some exaggerated breaking at times.
