Good Winter Golf
The course was in good off season shape. The greens were good. For a February Golf day it was GOOD!
Everything about today's game was outstanding! Weather was ideal!! Cant wait to play this course again!!
Nothing to write home about, crabgrass infested tee boxes, long fairways in need of a mow. Greens in pretty good shape, rolling true and holding shots. Overall not bad for a hot deal definitely not worth full price.
I enjoyed the course very much. The greens were soft and holding shots and very nice to putt on, balls rolled true. The putting green grass was a little long, but were fine. The fairways were in good shape, the rough was very rough. There was a recent heavy rain, over seven inches and the course was flooded in parts and is still recovering since it was cart-path only today, which made for some extra walking. This is not an easy golf course (I played from the second to back tees) and requires some accuracy on a lot of the holes because of the water and rough/trees. I'll be back again before the show flies.
Not Worth Your Time Or Money
This is not a 3 1/2 star course. The “fairways” are crabgrass and not maintained. The greens were okay. We played after it had rained and the course does not drain. There was standing water everywhere. There are no starters or rangers to keep the pace of play. The course is part of a municipal sport center that has essentially been closed and appears abandoned by the city.
Nice Course for the Money
Most times this course is kept in good shape, unfortunately, some greens were a little rough due to dead grass areas.
These is several holes with water hazards, which force you to be more accurate with your shots. Relatively flat course, no major hills. Some fairways are tighter, which I like.
There was four of us in the group and we all enjoyed the food at the club house at the end of the round.
All in all, a nice course.
A Great Layout, But ...
The layout of this course is wonderful (although 9 and 11 are a little quirky). The greens are slow but roll very true and they are receptive to a good shot. The pace of play was great. However, the fairways are horrible. Several times, I had difficulty finding my ball on the fairway. I am not from the St. Louis area and made my decision to play here based on several (I feel, inaccurate) Golfnow reviews. Except for the greens, the course conditions are fair at best. This course has the potential to be a fantastic golf course if the fairways were improved. I hate to be critical, but I want to be fair to my fellow Golfnow users.
