Fantastic course!

It had been 25 years since in played Belk Park and it is just as great today as it was back in the mid-90's. The course was in fantastic shape. The greens were fast and rolled true. Fairways were still green, although the cooler weather will most likely cause them to do dormant soon. Bunkers had plenty of sand in them and were well kept. Tee boxes were in good shape. Overall - great course to play!

Great Course

I have played this course a number of times and they are always working on it. Greens and fairways in excellent shape. They always have a starter but is is rare to see a Marshall.

Fun Round

Belk Park is always a nice course to play. The conditions were good, only complaint is some of the greens. If golfers would do a better job of repairing ball marks and not dragging clubs, etc. that do damage to the greens I would give this course a 5 star. Not necessarily is this on the staff, it's more on us as golfers to exercise etiquette around the greens.

Worth the drive from Chesterfield to Wood River.

The course is on fine condition. Booking on Golfnow got us a very good deal and certainly worth the 45 minute drive to get there.

Decent Course, Overly Booked

Found a good deal on Tee Off but the course was WAAYYYY Overbooked. Started on the back 9 because of league play later, as we made the turn the front was backed up by at least 6 carts. Careful when you visit this course as it is booked solid. Hole 18 should be closed to carts as it's muddy and patchy. Staff has always been great and the brewskies are affordable.

Very wet, cart paths only

We didn't realize how much rain they've had here recently (5"), so we also didn't expect cart paths only. It was very wet and I understand why they required paths only, but the course was pretty swampy in many places. My wife only played the par 3's when she found all the walking involved (bad back). The weather was perfect though and the pace of play was fine. Will play again someday when it's no so wet.
