Nice course. Great value.

Course was in great condition. Greens rolled true. I wouldn't call them fast but they certainly weren't slow. Overall course is average difficulty unless you put yourself in trouble and then it could compound quickly. Played with a friend Sunday at 1pm and played in 3:40 minutes even after catching a 3 some around 15 and having a few short waits on the remaining holes. A bit of a drive for me but with the value and conditions, that won't stop me from going back.

A Lovely Golf Experience at Florissant Golf Club

Our foursome plays a different course every month. It had been years since we last played Florissant. The course is maturing nicely. The staff is friendly and efficient. Pricing is favorably competitive. It was a beautiful day to play and we enjoyed the experience.

Challenging Par 5's

Played at Florissant Golf Club this past Sunday. The course was not crowded and pace of play was quick. If you strayed off the fairway, finding your ball was very difficult with high and sparsely mown rough. The buffalo gnats were terrible!!

The only problem with the course: gnats...bugged me!

Gnats have been an issue on most golf courses due to the extremely wet spring. My peeve with the course..nee clubhouse, I specifically asked the guy who checked me in..do they have a problem with bugs/gnats. Of course, he said no..they didn't but he uses a bug repellent when he played??? So, of course, gnats were horrible..not as bad as some..but bad.
I asked the clubhouse person what he used he mentioned he had purchased vanilla oil at Walmart for five bucks. Vanilla Extract, dilluted, is an amazing repellant for gnats..you dab some on your forearms and neck or...mix some up and spray on your clothes..and gnats HATE it. My point is..if the course KNOWS they have a bug problem..why not have a spray bottle there on the counter for players to use...instead of telling me to go to Walmart and pick something up??? ESPECIALLY when you KNOW you have bug problems!!! It couldn't possibly cost much money to ensure your guests are not overrun by gnats!! Sun Valley has their vanilla extract on the counter for all to use!

Clover wasn't awful but it could be better.

Cow pasture

They have really let the course go this year. You can barely distinguish the fairways and the rough. And some areas of rough are so tall and full of clovers it is impossible to play out of. There has been a lot of rain but there were plenty of dry fairways out there. Why is nobody out cutting the grass?

Beautiful course with rolling hills

Beautiful course, and not overly difficult for the average golfer. Pace of play not good due to a fivesome slowing play for all and not inviting others to play through. Lots of fun anyway, though.

Driving blind

My biggest takeaway from playing this course is that the front 9 is almost exclusively holes where you have to drive over a hill. From a playing standpoint, this isn't such a big deal since every hole is straight as an arrow. However if the course is backed up, you are constantly having to walk halfway up the fairway to get confirmation that the group ahead of you has moved on before you can swing. It creates a lot of back and forth on a course that isn't particularly friendly to walking due to the large hills and paths that lead through residential neighborhoods. The back 9 still has a few blind holes but is much friendlier than the front.

It is not the fault of the course but the clientele that were directly in front of us were pretty disruptive. The ground was still soggy due to a recent thaw and they were not respecting the cart path rule. They left tire marks on every hole on the course. There could not have been more than a dozen people playing the entire course at the time but 3 different groups were all backed up at the same hole. They constantly drove back and forth down the middle of the fairway looking for balls they clearly hit into the treeline. Luckily they only played the front 9 but we were there for nearly 2.5 hours by the time we reached the turn. The back 9 took us about 90 minutes.

You can't control the groups around you but the constant blind fairways makes this course not very fun to play. However the cost was fairly low so you can do worse. Cart is all but required though so if you prefer to walk, look elsewhere.

Great Course, Great Value

I’ve played Florissant many times and with the constant lie challenges and Hole placements, there’s always a reason to come back.
