Belk

The course played fast, green slow due to rain the day before but overall good condition, 18 fairway is ugly but the other fairways were in good shape. I would go back...if I had one compliant it would be the overcooked bratwurst.

Old friend

Played Belk Park weekly in the early 90's when I lived in B-Town, was like visiting an old friend. And it felt like every other time, which was a pleasant surprise. Course in great shape as usual except 18 fairway is a disaster. Didn't hit any shots out of it, so no worries. All golf is overly expensive, but definitely good value for course length, condition and difficulty. MO golfers, make the road trip, you won't be disappointed...Roma's, 140 Club or Fast Eddies after and you have a near perfect day.

Pace of play

The course was sending groups of 2 out. Our round still took 4 hours 15 minutes. They had a marshal on the course who I addressed the pace of play problem with twice. Absolutely nothing was done. What should have been a brisk 2 hour 30 minute round was ruined by standing and waiting at every tee box. I don't really understand what the marshal is supposed to do, but this one did nothing

Belk Park 2019

Belk Park has seen a great deal of rain in 2019. It unfortunately has taken a toll in some of the low spots in the fairways. There are some bare spots, but normally you can move your ball just a few feet and be on perfect fairway grass. The layout is challenging. The people who run Belk Park are trying to get it the condition to make it in the range of one of the best public courses in the St. Louis area. Four stars now, but hopefully rising higher in years to come!
