Challenging Situation

Wonderful layout on all three courses. It's difficult to say whether course conditions are due to prior flooding or lack of resources. The rough was overgrown on both courses we played. Greens rolled well although not as true as other local courses. Lots of dry patches on fairways, greens and rough. The geese are taking over the course and making it difficult to walk without having to step in goose poop. Not at all one of my favorites. Try the three great courses in Eureka if you want a great round of golf, they are worth it.

Enjoyable and Fast during COVID crises

Thank goodness Tapawingo remained open during COVID-19. We golfers know how to keep our social distancing orders! With one to a cart, the pace of the play was steady and we finished 18 holes in less than 3 hours on the Prairie and the Maramac courses! Luckily we had a nice group of 4 that let us two play through (of course we all kept our distance from each other). The fairways are in great shape but the greens are currently going through aeration so take max of two puts and move on. :)

Great course Great condition. A lil pricey. If you haven’t played this course or not in a while the score card wont help u. Some holes difficult due to blind shots if you dont know the course. Multiple courses .

Tapawingo - September 2019

My first time playing at Tapawingo and was very much impressed. The fairways were perfect and the greens were just right, not too fast or too slow. On the Wednesday golf outing, there wasn't much traffic on the course and essentially had the course to ourselves. I will definitely be back once the weather warms up here in St. Louis,

Still Open With The Flooding

With the recent flooding, the course has taken a beating. However, you play holes from 3 different courses to give you the best experience. Woodlands 1-9, Prairies 1,2,3,4,7,8, Meramec 1,2,3. Par 70.

These 18 holes were fine and playable. They even discounted the rate down to $55 on the weekend.

Disappointed

Due to the floods in months past, the course was in rough shape. We played a hodgepodge of 18 hole from 3 different 9 hole courses. Wish we knew beforehand.

Quiet and nice course

We played 9 holes and the paces was decent. It was fairly busy for the holiday weekend. The course was laid out nicely with par 3’s and 5’s mixed into the 9 holes well. Staff was friendly, helpful and funny...we will definitely play here again.

Rough conditions

Unfortunately due to recent flooding the course was not in good condition. Had to play holes from 3 nines in order to get 18 holes in. Would not hold this against course since normally it is in great condition and is a great track to play. Blame Mother Nature for this situation.

challenging course in excellent condition

A few holes were closed due to flooding, so I played the woodlands and a combination of Prairie and Meramec courses. Overall, I was very impressed...the course has an excellent layout...each hole seems very thoughtfully designed. There are a lot tee box options, which allow a wide range of golfers to enjoy the course. When I played the fairways, greens, rough and bunkers were all in excellent condition. It was really a pleasure to play.

Marshals Lack

This course does not enforce their rules. They allowed a group of 5 to play an entire round on a busy Saturday never splitting them up despite multiple calls from several different groups.

They also let a walking single in ahead of several groups at the turn and when the marshals were approached they said they would take care of it, but never approached. This left our group in a position of confrontation as opposed to doing their job and having the interaction.

The course is in bad shape but I will say that’s mostly due to the flooding in the area, so that’s not really under their control.

Fun Layout

Fun course with tons of memorable holes. Condition was great for the time of year. Played Meramac and Woodlands, both were equally solid in their own way. Played Prairies in the past and loved it too. Some of the views are breathtaking. This course will test you through the bag. The best part from my perspective is that the rangers don’t f*#% around. Too many courses these days fail to enforce pace of play rules. I commend Tapawingo for doing so, keep it up! Great round!

Great winter course too!

I have not played this course in over 25 years, but the Boccardi Family has done an amazing job. End of February, and the course is in great shape. Fairly challenging, but not too frustrating.

The holes lay out nicely. It’s great to play a course with 18 uniquely different holes. Good distance marking in the fairway and on the cart path helps.

Wonderful clubhouse for a snack and a refreshment before heading out.
