Course Has Gone South

I played Governor's Run for the first time this season. I've played it several times in the past and it's always been a very nice course. Times have changed.

The course is in horrific shape and speaks to the financial straights management is dealing with. We played on a Thursday afternoon and the course was a ghost town. Literally barely a car in the parking lot.

The course was in terrible shape. Weeds popping up through the greens, dried up bunkers and terrible grass and weeds near the fringe.

The worst part of it all is they are still charging prices you'd expect from a higher end course. The normal rate was $37.00 but we got the senior discount of $26.00. Keep in mind this was at 2:00 pm.

If you've already played this course recently, you don't need this review to tell you how bad of shape the course is in. If you haven't played in in a while, don't waste the time and gas to drive out there. There are too many other courses in the St Louis area that are a joy to play.

gr1

Every green except the putting green is over taken (30% or more) by crab grass. Most tee boxes have 10-20% of grab grass.

This is August. The course is barely playable.

Has gone downhill :(

This was always our absolute favorite course in our area. So, we were disappointed to find the course having some problems. Most of the greens had water grass on at least 30% of the surface making putting rather frustrating. Tee boxes were average at best and several of the red tee boxes were burned out and placed temporarily in the fairways. One positive--most of the zoysia fairways were in good shape!

Nice fairway and greens

Nicely conditioned zosia fairways and greens were above average and roiled very well. Blue tees where all moved up and we're having work done.

Pro shop is non existent and you check in at the bar for your round.

In summary good golf with average experience.

Enjoyable round!

Always enjoy this course. Greens were in great shape, fairways in good shape, some tee boxes being worked on due to heat stress. It's been dry and hot. Overall course in great shape. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We drive for over an hour to get to this course. Hope to play it a couple more times this year.

Like the Course

I hadn't played Governor's Run in over a decade. I knew I wouldn't remember the holes so I got the course guide book before my round. It helped but didn't show a few obstacles that were on the course, (creek/ditch, water areas). It wouldn't have mattered if I could have kept the ball in the fairway. It was pretty dry and the ground was hard in most places, making a good shot run out further than expected and putting a misplaced shot deep into trouble. I do like this course and would have hit a few different shots had I known the hole layout. Overall, a very good course at a respectable price.

Quick 9 before the storm

We had gone to Carlyle Lake to ride bikes & play golf. We rode for quite a while around the lake then ate & went to Governors Run. We heard on the radio that a big storm was coming so we only played 9. I hadn't been there in several years & didn't even know if it was still open. We found that it was in great shape & we enjoyed our round. Unfortunately, the weather report was correct & it was getting dark & thundering or else we would have played the back. We'll have to got back soon! Course has interesting holes with many hazards. Not one those back & forth courses!
