A True Gem
Wow! What an excellent golf course with a fabulous layout. All the stories are true and this track is wonderful. A real challenge that requires good and thoughtful shots. Position off the tee is important requiring good shots into the greens. Greens are challenging and would be significantly better if people fixed their ball marks. Staff very friendly. Can't wait to get back there this weekend!
We got a First-Timer here...
This is the first time I have played this course after hearing a ton of great things about it. The course is challenging, and the pin placements today were a bit absurd. It was like we were playing on a Sunday at the US Open. The fairways and tee boxes were in great shape. The greens were a little beat down with unfixed ball marks. The greens were slippery. Pace of play was pretty good. It took until about the 14th hole to catch up to another group that slowed things down. I wish the course would have had something in the cups like every other course I've played in the state of Illinois for the COVID times. Overall, it's a nice course, and I'll play again.
Conservatives was in great shape. I was paired with a Jr golfer who was a phenomenal player which made me step my game up.
Beautiful well maintained course and well organized for Covid situation!
Great Course In Great Shape
Spencer T. Olin is one of my Top 5 courses in the St. Louis metro area. The crowd was very light in the morning because I'm not sure people know that they are open with carts now, Our pace of play was outstanding.
The course is really in great shape, especially the greens. They are rolling smooth and fast. I also liked they added the S.T.O. Member tees. Where you play the yellow tees on the longer holes and the white tees on the other holes.
My only complaint is they have just turned the cups upside down due to the Covid-19. Your ball does not always fall down an inch because of the metal sections of the upside cup. It would be better if they use a piece of a Styrofoam noodle like most courses are using.
Great course , great price
Got out and played here for the first time this Wednesday and I must say I was impressed ! Great layout , greens rolled true even in March , bunkers in great shape. All and all had a great winter round here and will be back for sure !
Early March and windy
Greens and tee boxes are in great shape. The fairways aren’t grown up yet, so some really tight lies.
Should be real nice in six weeks.
The course was in pretty good shape, considering it is February. They seem a bit understaffed, considering they knew that they had a bunch of golfers with tee times. The lady in the pro shop was also trying to get food and drinks for golfers. She was super friendly and busy. At the turn, however, the guy that took her place seemed like he did not want to be there and that he was doing us a favor getting us anything. We turned around 2 and he had nothing for us to eat. Overall, this is one of the best courses for the money.
needed to get outside!
I had not played this course in a long time just because there are courses closer to home but was so happy to have played there the weather was getting worst by the minute but considering the time of the year all of the fairways are dormant but at least you have something under your ball all of the bunkers were raked and ready to go not full of water like some other courses so if you just need to get out during these winter months and the weather cooperates this is the course.
Best course in the winter. They seem to keep it in good shape despite the weather.
One of the best if not the best golfing value in the St.Louis Metro Area!
Course is always in great shape! In my opinion, a good golf course requires you to hit all of the clubs in your bag. Spencer T. Olin golf course does just that! I only wish it was closer to my home, but definitely worth my 45 minute drive. Especially if you go to Fast Eddie’s Bon Aire after your round of golf and order a cheese burger, chilled shrimp and your favorite beverage! Always a great day for only $25-$30 altogether!
After a 30 minute thunderstorm, we teed off and played in 3 1/2 hours. I was surprised they let us on the course, but it seems to drain well. Fun round!
Love the course, but Sadly, Too many ball marks not repaired by lazy players... maybe they should give away free repair tools with instructions.
