This course was a pleasant surprise! Grounds are nicely kept & there are plenty of challenges w sand traps, water features & rolling greens.
Perfect weather too! I will be back.

I have golfed for 15 years and never seen a course anything like this one. Some of the holes are in beautiful condition, some are 85% ground under repair... a wide variety of holes makes it fun to play, although there is WAY too much OB on the course, i mean literally out of bounds heavily in play on 12 or 13 holes... from number 7 to 14 is a good stretch of interesting, challenging shtos... number 18, however, is the worst finishing hole in the history of golf, hands down... OB down both sides the entire 600 yards, zero chance to reach in 2, its essentially a hybrid off the tee, a hybrid lay-up, and a mid iron approach... there is literally no where to miss the entire length of the hole... and I'm a legit 4 handicap!!!

Lots of interesting holes. Puts premium on good iron approach shots.
Drawbacks: Needs serious engineering work in spots. As another reviewer said, cut out some trees cut out to improve ventilation. Specific problem areas:
No. 16. Needs to be rebuilt to raise creek-lined fairway, re-do drainage. If it rains two days in a row, the fairway turns into a swamp.
No. 18: Hopefully fairway will be back this next year. Big splotches of ground under repair almost guaranteed a lost ball on tee shots.

Good points: Staff truly friendly, and offers one of the best practice ranges and practice greens in St. Louis area.

the first 6 holes are all straight, no doglegs. the greens in the back nine get burnt out easily. not enough ventilation, please knock out some trees. over priced. back nine is fun to play when it is in good shape.
