January 17, mid 50's and sunny in St. Louis. Good day to play. Golf was cart path only, and this was expected. The course was in good shape for middle of winter, and we had a good round.
A Very Windy Day at Aberdeen
The drought that has plagued StL has turned the fairways at Aberdeen into hardpan which played havoc with iron shots. They were great for drives, though, as the ball rolled and rolled on the "concrete". One member of my group recorded a 340 yard drive with the wind when he normally hits about 250. The greens had been recently aerated which we knew in advance so we didn't make many putts but understood. Winds were at 30-40 mph which made every high shot quite an adventure.
Enjoyable Course. A few areas of Fairway is under repair but nothing major. Easy enough to move the ball should you be unfortunate land in some mud. Course is fun and pretty forgiving. Greens were in good shape but you can tell not all the patrons are repairing their ball marks. Overall a pleasant round of golf.
Better than expected
Reading reviews I had average expectations. I was surprised by how good of a time I had here. Pace of play was incredible. The fairway could definitely be softer and felt like hitting off concrete in some spots. However greens and tee boxes were in excellent condition. Very quiet and good views. Would recommend if you can make it out here.
Bunkers were a water hazard. Lack of rain in the STL area this summer - baffling how some bunkers had 6+ inches of water. Told us 90° rule even though course was bone dry. Greens were beat up, more craters than the moon. Wouldn't pay 70+ to tee it up here, which is what they ask before twilight. I don't know if they are short staffed or just don't care since they do get a lot of play... ashame to see because I usually really like the course.
