About

Holes 18
Par 71
Length 6568
Slope 121
Rating 70.5
Type Public
Clinton Hill Golf Course has a classic, player-friendly layout that has been open to the public since 1970. The traditional design is gentle enough for beginners but there are still challenges in store for the more experienced golfer. The rolling fairways are lined with mature trees and the approach to the massive greens demands proper club selection. The greens are in good condition but they can be tricky and hard to read. Each nine has a distinct character and different set of challenges that will keep golfers on their toes. While the front nine is longer with numerous strategically placed bunkers, water hazards come into play on all but two holes on the back nine. In addition to having an enjoyable layout that appeals to a wide range of skill levels, Clinton Hill Golf Course is also a great value.

This is an awesome course to play.

The overall condition of the course was excellent. The fairways and greens were in great shape considering that my buddy and I played the course a couple of days before Thanksgiving. The staff did an extraordinary job of keeping the leaves off the fairways. I've played this course several times and have enjoyed my experience every time.

Clinton Hills was auctioned off in November of 2017 and is now closed. I believe it was donated to the City of Swansea and will become a park.

Awesome greens

Clinton Hill has come into my rotation of courses bc of the 3 par5's on front 9, the great course conditions, and superb greens. Holes 9 and 18 require solid shotmaking to have any chance at par. Challenging and straightforward, Clinton Hill's prices are well worth the drive to Fairview Heights.

Improving conditions

Pace of play was bad, fivesomes, kids, non golfers etc... late on a Saturday afternoon , I guess that's expected?? Under rumors of course closing in near future, it's never looked better. Superintendent has the course in better shape than usual. Greens rolling nicely, no complaints about course conditions. Bar and clubhouse shuts down at sunset. Only $20.00 on Golf Now. Good luck to owners and employees for the future of course .

Worst pace of play in the Metro area

I grew up playin this course and working at this course. It has become unplayable due to the horrible pace of play. Back ups on every tee. No course Marshalls in sight to reinforce pace of play. Even putting the white tees where the ladies' tees used to be doesn't help. Expect a 5 1/2 hour round or worse on a weekend. When I worked here in the 80s we had Marshalls on the weekend and they kept players moving. They helped fore caddy and let groups know when it's safe to tee off.

I won't be going back. It's a shame that a good course has been rendered unplayable.

Hi there! We are sorry to hear that you had an unpleasant experience. We are a little confused though because we had a tournament on your day of play and we had to make sure the everyone played in under 4 1/2 hours or our tournament would of been delayed in the afternoon. We would love to hear more about your experience. Please give us a call at (618) 277-3700 ext.2 and ask for our Director. We would love to right any wrongs! Thanks and have a great day!

Perfect greens

Clinton Hill always does a great job of providing a great golfing experience at a great price. We play this course often because it is challenging from the tips, the course is well maintained, and the staff is always very friendly. Rates are among the best bang for your buck values around greater St. Louis. Only critiques would be lack of a cart girl for drinks and snacks on course, and some of the tee boxes need attention. But, overall, they do a great job of keeping golfers happy and coming back.
