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.

Awesome Course

Tee box’s we’re a little chewed up but there was still room to play on each one. Fairways and greens are in great shape. Some pace issue towards the end of the front and back, would be nice to see a marshal out managing pace. One of the nicer courses I’ve played in the area and for $30 on a Friday morning, by far one of the best values in the area. Highly recommend giving this course a go!

Ranger

Playing by myself, I tagged along with another person to speed up the pace. A ranger by the name of “White” wanted us to combine carts or pay $10 to him otherwise. We didn’t know each other to combine the carts. We were simply helping the course (at least what I thought) by playing together before we got harassed for no reason. Did not finish full 18 afterwards. Left at 13 th hole. When I tried to explain, the response was “this is how we do things around here!”

Wait to play this course

The fairways and tee boxes are definitely nothing to write home about right now. I found the layout of the course kind of confusing but the redeeming factor is the greens rolled well and are in great condition. I don’t believe I will be playing this course ever again as it was not worth the money

Great course

Nicest course in Alton. Better staff , way less stuffy, and cheaper than Spencer T, all while being just as nice if not better. If you live close I would absolutely recommend this course
