Fun, Enjoyable Course

Course was very enjoyable. A great course for your average golfer considering forgiveness off the tee and lack of much trouble around the greens. There are several fairway bunkers to be avoided of the tee, however...The Greens and tee boxes were in great shape, but the fairways were not all that great in several spots on nearly every fairway. Pace of Play was fantastic. Not many people on the course (we played at 11am on a Wednesday) and we were able to play with no disruptions in our pace. Course seems to take a while to dry out, and there were several wet spots, but other than wetness and chewed up fairways, it was well worth the hour drive, and it is hard to beat when you find a $10 18-hole rate. My friend and I will be back.

Cant wait to get off the cart path

Still one of the best values in the metro STL region.
Course in good conditions, but with weeks of rain it is noticeable that mowers have not only not been in the rough but many of the fairways still un-mowed. Despite long grass in the fairways and wet conditions the bunkers were well groomed and in excellent conditions, no standing water. A fun and challenging course but can't wait for it to dry out.

Soggy mess

There is a difference between cart path only and you should not be open. Fairways all had damage, only mud where grass was, trying to find ways around standing water to get to your ball and insects by the thousands. This is due to the recent rains not the course management but full price when the course is this bad, no thanks

Super Saturday

What a beautiful day for golf! Wish it hadn’t rained so much on Thursday. It was cart path only due to the wet conditions. It was so awesome to get out and play a round of golf!

Perfect condition

Fairways are perfect. Greens rolled real nice. They are working on a couple of tee boxes, but it was no big deal. Highly recommend.
