Took my grandson and played 18 holes, great staff, great views of rolling hills, love playing this course with a par 6 number 5 hole.
Great Putting Practice
The greens were excellent and very receptive. The fairways had substantial damage the needs to be repaired. The sand traps were also well maintained. The course has beautiful scenic views and is very peaceful. It requires every club in the bag with its blind tee shots. Also, don't expect a beverage cart. Prepare yourself for the heat at the Pro Shop.
Good course getting better
Sun Valley has added zosia fairways to match their PGA quality greens. This course with its picturesque views is a true value and steal to play. The one area that needed some attention were the hard-packed sand traps. Golfers should run to play this super good but getting better course.
Long course, tough greens, challenging and beautiful
Thank you for your feedback!
The gnats were horrible here. It is in a more rural setting and I would expect some flys and gnats. I have never experienced anything like this. My wife refused to play halfway through the first hole. I continued playing up to the third tee box. We tried OFF bug spray which was a mistake because these bugs loved it. I wish I was exaggerating, they were in my eyelids, trying to fly up my nose and in my ears. I thought maybe it was just in that beginning area of the course but as I looked out I could see groups in the distance flailing around to shoo them away. Quit after two holes. Told the lady inside we were done. She asked if we tried bug spray and said we should have used a vanilla spray? We payed through a hot deal so I understand her not being able to refund our money.
Thank you for your feedback.The gnats are truly terrible this year, and all the rain we have been getting is making it worse. Unfortunately, there is not much we can do about these pesky bugs, but we have been advising golfers to use vanilla extract to deter the gnats away. For some reason, it has been helping!
Sun Valley Golf
First thing you'll notice is the beautiful views.
The greens are large and VERY well maintained.
The course is tight in several places, requiring a nice drive.
The course is fun to play.
The staff is great.
It's a must play.
Great views, great pace of play
This course offers some great elevated views of the Missouri landscape. Fall colors are just starting to appear. Pace of play at your leisure as this course is off the main beat and path of most golfers.
Course was in great shape only downside was tee boxes weren’t well defined. Quite hilly requires some walking .
The course is in good shape, greens are very nice. This is the best the course has ever been. My only complaint is that they sell 7 am t-times but don’t even arrive till 7. Range balls are terrible.
The course was better than expected
Couldn’t of more pleasantly surprised how nice this course was. Truly a hidden gem
I love it because you get your money worth back nine is very tuff
Great greens and fairways in the Missouri hills along the big river. Lots of wild life and beautiful views. A really fun place to play. Amazing value!
Course as in great condition as they have had some rain this year. Greens were fantastic and the scenery is always terrific. Great value for the price!
I had not played there in quite a while because the course was not in good shape and it was just too long for my senior game.
I was happy to find that the course had improved nearly 100 per cent. The zoysia fairways were fully grown in the tees and greens had improved and the overall care of the course was excellent.
The senior tees that have been added helped but were still too long at almost 5700 yards. I had to move up to the forward tee on some holes to have a chance to get to the green in regulation.
Overall it was a great experience because the stunning views you get from the course of the surrounding hills were finally matched by course conditions. I will be back and will tell friends about the improvement as well.
The course is in the best shape that I have seen it. Greens were excellent and rolling moderately fast.
Fairways were just right. The rough was a little high but you could still find your ball without much difficulty. A lot of rain lately.
I highly recommend it. I think it's the best value in the area. It's about a 50min. drive for me but worth it.
Cut the grass!
I've played this course many times in the last 5 years and we really like playing there close to home and a good value. One of the most important things you can do for a golf course is cut the grass. I do know in hot weather leaving it a little tall is the way to go but when your customers loose balls right in the fairway they aren't going to play the course. I lost a dozen balls within 10 feet of the fairway and that's not right.
Also it's the only course I've seen they let groups play with 5 carts on one round....really it's hard to believe. I understand people are members and they try to play best ball but it's ridiculous. Two cars four people it's a rule on every course we play but not Sun Valleys.
Sorry wish I could give it a better review because we love the course and more yet the people that work there but I can't afford to keep loosing balls and being disappointed we love the game and it's never any fun especially when you hit a beautiful drive and then loose the ball.
Thank you for the review, Randy. Point well taken. We will try to do better. Please try us again.
