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.

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 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.

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 .

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.

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.

I am looking of a "home" golf course, while visiting my son.

This course fits the bill, having the app is great for tracking ones progress.

There are some area of the course where maintenance is clearly needed.

Poor choice of tee by some groups of players in front of us impacted the pace of play yesterday, better education of visitors on the level of difficulty of the course and correct tee selection may help this issue.

We were asked what tees we were playing going to play from, but no one ask whether our ability was equal to our ambitions, I am sure that was the case for other people too.

Course was in decent shape. Fairways look like they are just coming up .. patchy in some areas but not bad overall. Greens were in good shape .. not very fast. $18 on a Sunday weekend not bad.

The one concern I had was there was 1 group of 7 people that held us up .. The young boy marshal broke them up after 9 holes but they reformed again 2 holes later. and they did not have the courtesy to let us play thru! It was a holiday weekend so we decided to not make a big deal out of it.

Good course for beginners to practice iron shots. Fairways weren't great, possible to still have a bad lie after a good shot because of patchiness. Fairways need a little love as well as about half the greens.There were no issues with pace of play Overall we had a good outing.

We picked CH because in previous years it was in decent shape and has some longer holes so you can use all the clubs in your bag. Unfortunately there are some MAJOR issues, like not having grass to hit off of in the fairway. We were constantly moving the ball to find something to hit from. Tee boxes need a lot of work. Greens were aerated and sandy but overall in good shape. The fringe was clumpy and bunkers don't appear to have been raked in weeks.

If all of that wasn't bad enough, they sent out one of the workers to tell us to keep up our pace! That was somewhat laughable because we had just finished our 5th hole in 1hr and 6mins. I believe that is under the standard rate of play. Since there were four of us, we did let a single and two threesomes play through. Still finished the round under 4 1/2 hours (and we are not scratch golfers by any means).

Overall, it was not a pleasant experience, we will not be back.
