A good course overall

Greens had a little aeration work done it looked like, there were several that while no crabgrass was growing they were sandy. Sandtraps were caked due to drying out. Fairways were nice but even the light rough was terribly overgrown.

Beautiful Course

The course is in excellent condition. The greens were aerated recently so a little bumpy. I really like this course.

Deceptive

I was not told about the newly aerated the greens.. The course was in terrible condition we lost balls in the fairway because it hadn’t been mowed why would they open the course I hadn’t been mowed in a week or two? The sand traps were horrible and the greens were ridiculously bad. I would’ve never played their had I had been told about the course conditions it was a waste of money and a waste of time and the insects were absolutely horrible.

Average Course

The course has a ton of potential but it just hasn’t received the care it needs to be great. Everything is rock hard and there are a lot of bare spots across the entire course. Probably wouldn’t pay more than $25 to play here but at that rate it’s a decent value. If you go in knowing what you are getting it’s not that bad but if you’re expecting an outstanding course you’ll be pretty disappointed. Again tons of potential for this to be an awesome course, just not quite there right now.

Just (Don't )Do It

I don't ever write reviews ....I play courses all over STL area. Even at $20 dollars with cart for 18 this course is really not worth it. Fairways are non existent, dry and might as well be hitting off dirt infield at your kid's baseball field. Greens have really big bare patches in most of them. River Lakes is in better shape for the money. Or just pay a bit more and go elsewhere. Sorry for the bad but honest review. Just Don't Do It.

Waste of a trip

Took 40 minutes to get there which is not the courses fault, but I can find 5 courses closer to me that are similar or better for that price.

Systems down

We came in for a 9:15 tee time
Systems down and no one working inside, the volunteer cart gentlemen got us settled and on our way and just pay at the turn. For the price, the layout, and the staff friendliness impressed me. Great place for an outing.
