Still No Yardage Markers on Par 3's
I wrote a review last year, not understanding why they do not have yardage markers on the par 3's. Nothing has changed. This helps speed up play. Pace of play was not good.
Course conditions were fine. Struggling with some of the fringes.
Nice Course But Lacks Yardage Markers
This a fun, playable golf course that we enjoy playing several times a year. It is a flat, links style course with two difficult holes to finish each nine. You can have a great score but you have to get through these two holes. From the white tees, if you hit a good drive, you can reach all the par 5's, which makes it fun. The course was in great shape too. The pace of play was a little slow, a foursome had to wait on a threesome all day. They have a small clubhouse with a fine selection of beers on tap and in the cooler.
Here is my biggest problem with this course. They have no yardage markers on any of the par 3's. I can't understand this! You can speed up the pace of play just by doing this. It can get a little confusing in the fairways too. They use green as their 200 yard color (most courses use blue). They also have black markers too, which I think are 175 or 125. Nothing is mentioned on the scorecard about this.
Love this course!
The course is great shape, well maintained and the staff is very friendly. I am surprised that the course is in a great a shape as it is because of two floods in the last 18 months. I love playing here.
Great links course
I love this place. Unlike the overpriced Landings, Aberdeen is a true links course in every way. It is all out there in front of you - no blind shots or trickery. If the wind is down, you can score very well here. But just like a true Scottish links, when the wind blows, Aberdeen becomes a beast. But it is one of the fairest layouts in the area - you're rewarded for great shots, and penalized for poor ones.
The greens are smooth and reasonably fast, and in the 5 times I've played here, it was in good condition every time. The US Kids Golf tour held an event out here and my son loved it. Everyone was friendly and the course was perfect for kids -- it can play as short as under 5000, or over 7200 - a true test for all skills levels.
I prefer walking, and while they obviously offer carts, this is simply a great track to walk. No severe elevation changes, and most green-to-tee walks are less than 30 seconds.
My only criticism of the place is their Pro Shop and food/amenities is severely lacking. It has a construction trailer feel to it. But the staff is friendly, and it's one of my favorite places to play. Prices are better than most courses of equal stature.
Everyone but me should hate this course
Terrible, Terrible golf course. Please do not play it.
If you do, it will be harder for me to get on and I love the course.
As advertised, a Scottish Links experience. Always windy as there are few trees to break the wind coming off the nearby river valley, gorse type rough, lots of sand traps, and a fun, fun layout that is always nicely maintained. Additionally, dependent upon how the seriously evil management sets it up with pin placements, it can be incredibly challenging once you reach the green.....if you ever do.
Really not worth your time. If, however, you need to round out a foursome there, please contact me. I love this golf course
Definitely worth playing
I had not played this course in the past but always like to try those billed as "links" style. Wind was blowing hard when we played and that added to the challenge. Course was in nice condition. Fairways are zoysia and in very good shape. Greens were mostly fast and in good condition although there were a decent number of unrepaired ball marks or poorly repaired ball marks. You need to play this course a couple of times to get a good feel. Will definitely be back. Gender is male.
good fairways average greens
course is in good condition for this time of year. a little pricey
Fun course, great condition
I have not played this course in about 8 years. I am sorry I did not return sooner. Pace of play was excellent! Greens and fairways were in perfect condition. I also forgot how fun this links course is to play. A+
I like the link style course
Enjoyable layout if you like the link style course this is a good one! We'll maintained and fall is a pretty time to view the hills surrounding the course
Red flag special a great value
Course was in good condition overall - tee boxes had just been aerated. Very hot day and a few of the water jugs on the course were empty.
Absolutely beautiful weather and a great way to spend the day. Course was in good condition and the greens were cut and rolled, so they had a little speed to them. My first time playing the course, so it helped that we were partnered up with a couple of people familiar with the course. Tee times were a little behind because of the morning dew. Will certainly go back and try again.
Top notch condition
Good: Course condition is excellent. The staff are aces
Bad: none at all
The only true links course in St Louis
This place is great. the clubhouse staff is on top of things. the course is perfect. Spectacular views of the valley. Way to go guys.
Course was in decent condition after heavy rain a couple days before. Staff was nice and it was a nice Saturday afternoon so we expected it to be busy....but this was ridiculous. ONE group was holding up the ENTIRE course leading to 5.5 or 6 hour rounds and there was NO marshal to be found. The group was totally oblivious and the staff evidently did not care. Surprising for such a good course normally.
Aberdeen is a gem
This course is my favorite in STL. It is always in great shape and is one of the better values. Matt/Greg and staff do a great job.
Great course for the money
Bunker placement was top notch ensuring accurate drives or carry to avoid. Fairways were in great shape and lies tight around the greens. Greens were challenging with subtle breaks requiring commitment to the putt or a line to drop in the hole.
I only rate below a 5 due to fall aeration in progress on the tee boxes and dirt turds remained. Tee locations were not specific as the markers had not been replaced.
Interesting course to play with a good layout.
We played the Aberdeen Links course in full sun on a 97 degree day, and sort of missed the possibility of seeking shade. Kudos to the staff, for the water coolers were plentiful and full of ice water. It is a challenging and interesting layout. Zoysia fairways were consistently good. Bunkers were well filled with quality playable sand. The Greens, however, were inconsistent. If all were as good as #9 I would have rated the course much higher.
This is a fun course to play. In good condition although the greens were a little beat up from people not fixing marks, but better than most. Fairway bunkers are in tougher spots along with high native grasses making tee shots a little more important here. Can be tough from the black/gold tees. Had a lot of fun and will play again.
