Far Oaks Golf Club in Caseyville has a unique layout with a front nine that is designed in a Scottish-links style and a back nine that plays through rolling woodlands. The links holes are framed with native prairie grasses and wildflowers while mature oak trees line the fairways on the back nine. There are plenty of elevation changes throughout the golf course, making it hard to find a flat lie. Mounding and strategically placed bunkers lurk treacherously along the greensides and there are also several holes with water. Far Oaks Golf Club is a challenging course that demands accuracy, which is most apparent on the 10th hole. Although it's not the longest par 4 on the course, it is still challenging thanks to a slew of bunkers that border both sides of the green.

Great value

Fairways and greens were great ! Rough pretty think which was fun presents a challenge . But overall I’d say the course was great ! Wish they were a better about offering deals . When we finished our round we asked what the price to play 9 more was bc we were very pleased and they gave us the price of 24.99 and we said well how much is it for 18 bc that was close to the price we paid for the original round and they said $25 . So maybe offering a discount for an additional 9 when the course was wide open woulda been awesome . But it is what it is . Will definitely go back

Confidence

With two par 5’s under 500 Yds, this is a course to get your confidence back, or get into a good rhythm with. Definitely a course you could score on even from the tips.

So disappointed

Golf Now shows course wide open. Arrive to find 6 carts at first t-box. A couple of singles, a foursome and 2 twosomes...all going off separately. No starter, no ranger, but a lot of frustrated golfers. 1 pm tee time, hit my first shot at 1:25. Shouldn’t be surprised, happens here all the time.

Fall golf

Brown fairways, greens were pretty rough (maybe a bitter rougher than expected for this time of year), lots of dead patches. Course work is being done next to the green on #1. Nice layout, will definitely be back here in the spring to (hopefully) greener conditions.

Nice Tuesday round, greens are slowly improving. The STL bumpkin still hasn’t learned how to use a divot tool, but that is typical of EVERY course in the Metro Least!

Needs help

This is my favorite course in the area, but sadly the greens and many of the bunkers are in rough shape. So many dead/bare spots on the greens makes it nearly impossible to putt. REPAIR YOUR BALL MARKS PEOPLE!!!, don’t add to the problem.

Beat Up.

Any course I pay over $50 to play, I expect to be in good condition. The greens were in TERRIBLE condition. Not only that, there was no course marshal to speak of in order to help keep the pace of play. Round took over 5 hours. Bottom line, I won't be back. There are too many nice courses in St. Louis and across the river in Illinois for me to travel that far and pay that much for that experience.

Just bad!!!

Greens are gone. Course worth only about $20 to play right now...not $50-$60. All greens had major issues which made it impossible to post a score. Just had to putt in general vicinity with no chance of ever rolling true! Place needs some serious work done.

Going Downhill Fast

I should have known something was up. No one at the course on a Saturday morning and the practice green had some issues. I guess the word is out.

Every green has issues. Numerous areas with no grass. See images of hole 17 green. Greens are so overwatered that they are spongy. Your ball will land in it's own ball mark.

Numerous bunkers with weeds, no sand. Some fairways erratically mowed (hole 14 and 15). Rough was as hard as a rock.

With these conditions, they are charging $60. Ridiculous!

Good course but greens are ruined

Course up to the greens is very nice. Once on the greens there are huge sections of dead grass. It’s like putting through a minefield and makes the experience pretty lousy. Once the greens are fixed this will be back to one of the best courses in the St Louis metro area.
