Sugar Creek Golf Course offers some of the best scenery of any course in the St. Louis area. Golfers can enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding countryside from the course's elevated tees. The course opened in 1990 with several improvements made in the following years. The layout is a manageable length at just under 6,100 yards. It is player-friendly enough for beginners to approach with confidence but there are also challenges in store for more advanced players. Water only comes into play on one hole but there are stands of trees lining the narrow fairways. The golf course will generously reward accuracy and good strategy though it is not overly punishing if you are slightly errant. In addition to the course, Sugar Creek G.C. also boasts an expansive practice range with 35 hitting stations.

Improving

There have been more improvements added since we were there last week. Compared to last year it's like a different course. It's not perfect, but for the price and location, we thoroughly enjoy playing here and we will be back again.

nice layout but poor conditions

The course has potential because of the elevation changes and hilly and winding layout. Some of the holes had bare spots in fairways and greens.

hard as rock

in fairness it jas not rained for about a month. The fairways were hard and dry as a rock. Some greens had beeen aerated or sanded and were very slow, bumpy and uneven. cart paths are bad in some areas not useable. areas around paths often rutted. however I would go back because of layout of course, many interesting holes among these hills.

Compared to last year, it's great but the greens are starting to get diseased. Better do something, real quick.

Terrible customer service

A woman named lana is especially rude. Very friendly staff except for her. She has no manners and should not be waiting on the golfers or be in public service in general. I will not be going back because of her.

Terrible track

Save your money and go somewhere else. Greens are in terrible condition and super slow. Fairways are okay. I don’t know what grass they use but it seems like backyard grass. Definitley need a cart to play. Only a good course to bring kids out during twilight to play for cheap

Nice course at a reasonable price

This is a challenging but fun course. They were doing some work to a couple of greens, but most were in good shape.

Extraordinarily friendly staff.

I will go back for sure.

Golf Cart Price

This is the second review I have written about this issue with charging $10/person for a cart on top of what you pay via GolfNow. I do like this course and have played it many times over the years, however with this policy in place I absolutely will not be back. The people who work there are great, the course is pretty and usually in pretty good shape, but so are other courses in the area that they compete with. Just booked Paradise Valley instead, better price, better course, and I get to ride for the price I paid. Again this is too bad, but if this doesn't change they won't see a lot of players coming back.

Revamping a Fun Course

I've been playing at Sugar Creek for the last few years as its close to home. This new owner has really but not only money but time and passion into this course. Noticed drastic improvements to the grounds and a relentless effort to get their greens in shape. A new putting green looks to be opening to compliment the driving range.

Overall I love going to Sugar Creek whether playing a Solo round or a good scramble with friends. Keep up the great work and look forward to whats next

Fun course with great staff!

This is s really fun course with plenty of elevation changes. The course has plenty of holes to challenge you and also has some very good holes for scoring. The course conditions are pretty good and the greens are in good shape. The staff is super friendly and helpful. I have played here numerous times and will always come back. Thank you.

The course that won’t let you play 9

From the beginning to the end I fully enjoyed the experience, from the people behind the counter to crushing a drive on the greens, it was a overall great golf experience! I am new to golf and decided to play a quick 9 the course quickly sucked me into another 9 holes after seeing the grassy greens and the beautiful fairways! This course is no joke and definitely a spot to check out if you’re new or experienced at golf! I would recommend this course to anyone trying to get into the game of golf! I originally hated golf but after coming out here today it made me realize how beautiful the game is, I would recommend 10-10
