If only the fairways were fair ...

This could be an exceptional course if the fairways were, well, fair. The only flaw is the high-mown, clumpy fairways. It is truly annoying to hit one's ball in the middle of the fairway, but have to spend 5 minutes trying to find it because it's hidden behind a clump of grass. On the plus side, the greens were in nice shape, and although the greens themselves were of average difficulty, missing them was thouroughly punished by bunkers, steep grades, and small hillocks surrounding most of the greens preventing any flat lies. Aside from being punished by missing greens, the true challenge of this course is extreme elevation changes on most holes (notably on the back 9), and long, long grass for a sure lost ball along many fairways and many greens. Hit it straight or you are in for a long day here. Overall, it's hard to find such a challenge for the price.

Valley is a term to be taken seriously

Tucked away in rural Missouri, this is a very nice and challenging course. As the title says, there are some quite severe elevation changes on the course; walking it would be quite a workout. Maintenence on the course could be better -- bare patches in the fairway sometimes left me longing for a lie in the rough. Nevertheless, if you are looking to play a challenging course, it is worth the drive. Heck, looking around the golf course and only seeing the occasional farmhouse -- and NOT a housing development is worth the cost. Absolutely gorgeous location for a course. p.s. on certain days, the course offers all-day golf for $25 -- quite a deal.
