About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 6423 yards
Slope 125
Rating 72.6

Woodlands Golf Club, which sits only 30 minutes from St. Louis, is known for having some of the area's best greens. The putting surfaces roll true and hold well on the approach. This public course has garnered a local following thanks to not only its green conditions but also the affordable rates. With a diverse landscape and unique hole designs, it's definitely a shot-maker's layout. You'll probably use every club in your bag on this golf course. A long creek winds across the entire layout, coming into play on a few holes. There are also strategically placed bunkers that lurk along the greensides. Although Woodlands Golf Club is relatively short at just over 6,400 yards from the back tees, it feels much longer thanks to a variety of elevation changes that range from subtle to dramatic.

A great day for golf. The front 9 played a little slow - the pace was better on the back 9. The course shape (fairways/rough) was okay given the conditions we have had this spring, but there is definitely some work to do to get into top form. The greens were overall good with some spots here and there. A nice variety of holes, hills, and hazards.

Rough winter!

Course is in pretty good shape considering the long rough winter we have had. Grounds crew working very hard to get course back in shape. The owners are very committed to providing the best experience to their customers.

Meh

Not too bad, not that great. Fairways very thin, still looks like March. Super slow play especially for a Tuesday at noon. Stuck behind a 3 some of hackers, with a 4 some of octogenarians in front of them. The one ranger I saw couldn’t be bothered, parked under a shade tree talking on his phone! But the price was great on Golfnow.

Awesome Course!

Love the layout of this course. Fairways are in good condition and greens roll true. I personally think the greens here are some of the best in the area.

Staff are very nice and accommodating.

Only drawback is the amount of gnats around the course. Bring bug spray!

Very confusing layout

Don’t depend on your gps. Course crisscrosses everywhere and holes have been changed several times. Staff was great and the new owners seem to be trying hard to make improvements. Can’t wait to see what the future holds!

Major Improvements

The previous owners had let the course run down over the years.
The new owners and staff have done an amazing job bringing this course back into shape.
I have let the inside staff and outside maintenance crew know how impressed I am with everything they have accomplished this year.
We will definitely be playing this course again and again!
