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!
“Not up to par”
Belk normally one of the better courses in the area for playing conditions. That being said, currently not the case. Hole #9 under construction, changed to a par 3. Fairways have lots of dead spots, and they were shaggy. I know we just had several inches of rain in a short period, but the fairways didn’t happen overnight. Staff was great, even got a reduced rate w/o asking .The greens were a little chewed up, although some of that is due to bad golf etiquette. Fix your divots you lazy jerks!!!!!!! Sorry, major pet peeve. Course can and should recover soon, hopefully.
Nice Course but....
The 9th hole is under construction now and is converted to a par 3. Otherwise, all good. Forgiving layout...mostly...but tough and fast greens.
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.
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
... from all of the water. 10-17 were in above average shape, but most of the rest of the course is beat up.
The best course in my immediate area
The course was just too wet just the weather’s fault...
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!
Hole in one
I had a hole in one on #17. Totaling 6 now. The pro inside has had 45 holes in one, that is #11 in the US or world. Cold windy day to play was against the wind, did not know until I got there.
Course is in great condition. Greens are rolling nice, zoysia fairways beautiful.
Great value....course was in great shape even though it’s rained a ton this spring. Very challenging layout with great rolling greens.
The best course around
The course took a half inch or rain the previous day so of course everything was wet but still enjoyed the course
