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.

Much improved!

2nd time I have played this course and I am happy to say that it is much improved over the previous time I played.

It still has a ways to go but it is definitely worth a try.

Who ever designed the course obviously has never played golf. And I don’t think they have a grounds crew cause there was absolutely no fairway just tee boxes and a green out in a swamped field. Easily the worst course I have ever played.

Great course and staff!

I went to this course a couple of times last year after getting back into golfing and went back to it for my first round this season. I love this course. It is a great value for your money and the staff is always very friendly. The owner even talked with us while we grabbed a bite to eat between the front and back 9’s. Would recommend to everyone and will be going back many times again this season!

Good value. Course improving.

The greens are in very good shape. A little shaggy this time of year, to be expected. PLEASE repair your ball marks.

Fairways and tees need work next. The zoysia parts are in good shape, but kind of sparse in areas.

First time playing this course in many years. As others have noted, the management is making a concerted effort to fix many years of neglect. Keep up the good work.

Nice layout. A lot of elevation changes. Pretty forgiving course. Nice scenery throughout.

Undeniable improvement

Huge improvement just within one season. New management definitely working hard to improve course conditions. Played on a Wednesday and about half the holes were being actively worked on in some capacity (as you should expect midweek); the workers were aware of golfers and did not cause disruption. Owner introduced himself and asked for our feedback.

I would encourage others to take advantage of the still competitive rates while available in order to gauge the progress for themselves. I'm not saying there isnt work to be done, but credit where credit is due. They are trying to correct previous management's problems.

Great Value and Setup

This course has come a long way under new ownership. Greens have drastically improved throughout season. Like the setup with lots of elevation differences and a mix of challenging holes with ones you can go after. One of the best values in St Louis region and only expect course conditions to continue to improve. Would recommend giving it a try if you haven't.

Fun course

Fun course to play. Get a mix of flat open holes and then some holes are very hilly. At the turn I met the owner, and he along with his staff were very nice and appreciative. I would recommend playing here, when you get a chance. This is my third time, and the new owner is improving/maintaining the course.

Progressively better

A work in progress. New ownership has made changes for the better over last few years. Greens have made huge strides. With continued care, a lot of potential for a good local course. Looking forward to see it in its prime next summer. Very friendly staff.

Hard work paying off

I have been playing here for years. Before the new management took over the course was in rough shape. Over the past couple years this course has improved dramatically. The greens were outstanding , the fairways were clean, and the pace was good just very busy. I will continue to golf here!!

Definitely Worth Checking Out!

Sugar Creek is in the best shape I've seen for years! They continue making big improvements to the course, including recent smoothing, vertislicing and overseeding the greens, which all rolled beautifully & looked nearly perfect. It also looked like the practice green was being completely redone. (Now it would be great if golfers helped keep the greens nice by fixing their own ball marks! I played behind a foursome of "members" who didn't fix one ball mark all day.) I recommend Sugar Creek to people all the time because I really do think it's a fun and challenging golf course that you can play for a good price.

Coming along

I’ve played this course a few times over the past two years and it is steadily becoming better. Most the of the tee boxes were open and the greens were okay but much better than they were last summer. Fairways are actually really nice minus the bare patch or two. If they continue the work, this will turn out to be a nice course.
