Formerly known as the Players Club at St. Louis, Crescent Farms Golf Club has undergone more than just a name change with a major course renovation that included lengthening the fairways and reconstructing the bentgrass greens. The course has a parkland layout with mature trees lining the fairways and plenty of water coming into play throughout. There are also numerous strategically placed bunkers that appear along the greensides. Golfers will come across several risk-reward opportunities where good course management and accuracy are the key. One of Crescent Farms Golf Clubs toughest holes comes halfway through the golf course. The par-4 ninth hole begins with an intimidating tee shot protected by two fairway bunkers, a hazard to the left, and tall native grasses to the right. The challenges don't end there either, golfers are then faced with a second shot to a heavily bunkered, sloping double-tiered green.

Pretty decent shape throughout for the time of year. This one of my "go-to" courses in St. Louis. All around nice people, good food service and fun course layout make it one to return to time after time. It can get busy and slow the pace since it is apparent how others feel the same about its popularity.

Fairways are great greens are in good condition and roll well.

Rough has been aerated and is rougher right now.

Good layout is a good value for golfers on very good conditions.

I couldn't agree more with the most recent review. Crescent has always been a good track. However, with the new cart paths, fairways, and makeover to the greens it's the top public course to play in the St. Louis area right now. The greens used to be slow and shaggy. You can tell they have rolled and watered them heavily throughout the drought. Great work by everyone involved in making this a premier course!! It's a must play with it's current condition!!

Played solo on a Sunday morning with VERY few others on the course; pace was awesome. Tee boxes are cut way too long and fluffy, and you can expect several poor contact tee shots on any iron, hybrid, or FWs teed low. With the amount of doglegs, short holes, and tree lined fairways, be warned. I feel like price-value is a little high at Crescent, but it is the best overall of the 3 courses in the neighborhood (Pevely and Aberdeen).

I always enjoy playing this course. The course condition was amazing considering all the hot and dry conditions. The grill is wonderful for a quick bite to eat at the turn. It was odd that I had to wait for a cart this day, yet pace of play was extremely good. Can't wait to return!
