Woodlands Golf Club, which sits only 30 minutes from St. Louis, is known for having some of the area's best greens. The putting surfaces roll true and hold well on the approach. This public course has garnered a local following thanks to not only its green conditions but also the affordable rates. With a diverse landscape and unique hole designs, it's definitely a shot-maker's layout. You'll probably use every club in your bag on this golf course. A long creek winds across the entire layout, coming into play on a few holes. There are also strategically placed bunkers that lurk along the greensides. Although Woodlands Golf Club is relatively short at just over 6,400 yards from the back tees, it feels much longer thanks to a variety of elevation changes that range from subtle to dramatic.

Getting beter

The last time I played this course it was in need of some TLC. The grounds crew has been busy and the course is in amazing shape. They are still working on improvements. Keep it up!

Your hard work is showing

This course is shaping up. Some tee boxes are still pretty rough, 6 and 14. The trees are really making 15 difficult off the tee box. However, the fairways and greens are in fine shape. We really like the continued improvements and are considering membership again. Keep up the good work.

Very Slow Play!

Our group of 2 played the first 8 holes in 75 minutes. It took 3 hours 15 minutes for the remaining 10 holes. There were 3 groups waiting on every tee box the rest of the round.
We were wondering if the Pro Shop let groups off the 10th tee box about 12:45 pm?

Needs Water

The layout of Woodlands is nice, but the course needs some serious attention. The greens are decent, and fairway/rough are just okay, but the tee boxes are likely the worst in the immediate area (extremely bare and hard). While it has been dry, the tee boxes have not changed much within the past few years, so I'm not sure that could be the sole reason. If they could get the tee boxes squared away, it would become a nice course again.

Tee boxes and sand traps are not managed.

Course conditions are rough. I’m not sure that there was one sand trap that was ready for golf. The tee boxes haven’t seen much attention in years. It seems like they are just going through the motions.

Impressed

The golf course was top notch and well kept. My friends and I were all impressed with course and the greens were excellent. The only complaint was the golf carts. They are rough and need some attention but they did tell me new carts are coming around July 3 I believe.

Fairways

The fairways were hard as concrete possibly due to weather. Other than that I liked the course, the pace of play was ideal.

Deep Mixed Grass Rough

This is a beautiful tract everyone should play at least once if in the area. A little bit of improvement construction work going on and some tee boxes need work. Green are perfectly rolling and fairways are nice zoysia . Beware of the mixed breed rough that I was told is always cut quite high. That probably is a welcome challenge for an elite ballstriker. Not so good for the 90% rest of us. It’s a real shame because this great layout with evenly cut modest height rough would be enough challenge in that it has so many other features going for it . Anyway, the views starting the round on 1, going down 17, and climbing back uphill to finish 18 with the clubhouse background are worth the price of admission alone. So I guess the locals just bring plenty of cheap balls and go. Maybe someday the owner will figure how many folks play once and done and cut his rough to a level that makes practical business sense.
