Nice course in great shape! The greens were in excellent condition and very challenging. Will be back!
We met some excellent people on the course, always nice to meet new people.
Outstanding Greens, Location & Price. Fairways, Bunkers & Cart Paths Need Improvement.
The front nine is a bit more tighter and gives you the feel of British Open golf with some double greens. Hole 9 is one of the toughest if the pin is back right. The back side is more of a modern flat, links style course. It is wide open off the tee. The only defense of this golf course are the greens. Plenty of slope and numerous tiers. The green on hole 18 was so much firmer than any other green.
Located adjacent to the Spirit of St. Louis airport. Very noisy with the numerous takeoffs/landings. We were lucky to see numerous vintage aircraft the day we played.
What is GOOD about the course…
The greens. Only greens better are Gateway National.
Location. Located in West St. Louis County.
Price. The $64 green fees on a Saturday morning, is what you would expect for this course.
Friendly. The staff is very accommodating and nice.
What is BAD about the course…
Fairways are rough. You are playing this course for the greens, location and price. Not for the condition of the fairways. Some holes are extremely rough. Holes 2, 4, 16.
Rough was high. Hard time finding balls. This only slows down play.
No yardage markers on par 3’s. I will never understand why courses fail to do this. Again, only slows down play.
Cart paths. Probably the worst cart paths you will ever experience.
Bunkers. Some bunkers raked while others are not.
In summary, I like this course. It is a no frills, fun course to play. Just remember, you are playing this course for the outstanding greens, location and price. You just have to put up with the poor fairways, bunkers and cart paths.
Landings at spirit
Course was in good shape as far as playing conditions. Greens were fast and run true. Only negative is the cart paths. They could use some work to smooth them out or replace them. Very bumpy ride with seams that could knock your fillings out even if you slow down.
Nice Conditions For October
The course continues to be in good shape. Greens are in excellent and the fairways are starting to turn the dormant brown. The fairways were very firm due to the lack of rain. The maintance staff is always friendly and are always working on the course, raking bunkers, mowing, etc.
Wet windy day, The greens were some of the best condition wise that I have played in a while The greens were some of the best condition wise that I have played in a while. They were tricky and not a lot of flat spots so putting is a challenge at this course but the conditions were very good overall the course played well and I have no complaints about the plane conditions or the layout. Two things that stood out though was the very unfriendly staff and a pro shop that was probably the worst I’ve ever been in. They have nothing for sale other than some drinks if you need supplies you better come prepared and don’t dare ask anybody working there for some tees or a sleeve of balls because you’ll be met with old and ignorant responses. on multiple holes they were mowing and blowing which is understandable but not when we’re trying to put T off or hit shot in the fairway I was very amazed at how little they cared for the golfers on the course at one point one of the guys in my foursome was about to hit a puddle and the guy on the mower saw that he was putting and just continue to cut the fringe as we stood there and we waited and waited he didn’t shut off the mower he didn’t stop he just kept going very odd haven’t seen that many courses before if they cleaned up a few things they have a nice
Great, low stress Golf
Course was in great shape, greens were wonderful with tricky breaks. Pace of play was as expected for a full course, but still less than 4 hrs. All around great day at the course.
Great layout, course in good shape, pace of play was tolerable, overall enjoyable afternoon.
Greens Are Good
The greens are really outstanding at the Landings. No stressed areas on the greens and the greens have some pace to them.
Fairways and rough are good, except for low lying areas where water settled during heavy rainstorms.
The pace of play was outstanding too, The course is a links style course, with the front nine having holes that look very similiar.
Best Greens In The St. Louis Area
I had not played the Landings at Spirit in a few years. I was pleasantly surprised how good the greens were. With many courses struggling with thier greens, none of their greens had any blimishes on them. They also rolled true and were quick.
They also have bent grass tees, which you don't see in this area. The course is marked very well with yardage sticks in the fairways. Sometimes, it was tough to find yardage on the par 3's.
The entire course is flat, with the front nine giving you a feel of Scotland, with several double greens. Many of the fairways look wide open but the vegetation will get you with a wayward drive. Especially, the tall "corn like" plants. The course had significant rains several weeks back, which caused areas of the rough to have standing water. Some of the rough areas are now dead because of this.
The back nine is flat also with most of the greens with 2 or 3 tiers. Some of the holes have moguls framing the fairways.
I can be noisy with the course being right next to an airport. The cart paths are really in poor shape also.
Overall, with such good greens, you should get out and play the Landings.
Good course but too many similar looking holes
A fun course to play and it does not have any water hazards. Seems like every time I play there, it is pretty crowded and leads to slower than usual rounds. However, the marshall who was out there came up to us on the back nine and checked to see if we wanted to jump ahead to get ahead of a REALLY slow foursome.
One of the things that seems to stand out to me is how many of the holes seem similar. A lot of them are just flat, straight holes without a ton of challenges. No. 16 is a very short par five and many people can get on in two. The home hole is interesting. If you can hit a big tee shot, longer hitters might be able to drive the green if you are playing one of the more forward tees.
The course is usually in good shape and the greens are always excellent. A lot of planes were talking off the day we played and the Air Force jets made a ton of noise. Will continue to play many times in the future.
Nice Course But ...
The course layout is good and in fair condition. However the staff was unprofessional and really didn’t care about the golfers.
Moderate Difficulty but Fast Greens
Pricey unless you play non-premium tee times. IMO course is not worth the premium Saturday morning rate. That being said, the course is set up to give everyone a chance to play. Almost all of the greens are open for links style golf shots. The greens are spacious, and usually some of the best in St Louis public golf. They can sometimes get real fast and therein lies the challenge of the course. To score well, the golfer must have a solid short game to save strokes around these greens.
Amazing what they can on this course with little to work with.Fairly wide open links style course with little water or sand hazards pretty easy to play. However, with 15-20mph wind this course becomes a whole different beast. The greens are exceptional and are some of the best greens around this area all year round.
They really are what protects this easy layout and can be unpredictable.
This is not worth the money!
The course was in decent condition but we definitely did not feel we got our money's worth. At those prices there should be gps systems or at least graphics of what the holes look like. No drink cart, yardage not well marked. Very disappointing!
