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.

Played after a tourney

Played here for the second time this year. Gave it a 5 star for condition in spring. 4 star this time. Greens were good (recently aerated) fairways were great and tees were great. Rough was very hard and dry from drought. Great course overall well worth money

Very picturesque and enjoyable round

Course was in very good condition. We were not aware the greens had been aerated, making our putts difficult. We had an enjoyable round anyway.

Staff was very friendly, keeping appropriate distance and wearing a mask.

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.
