Rating 73.5

Stonewolf Golf Club is one of only four courses designed by Jack Nicklaus in Illinois and Missouri and it is also one of his only public access designs. Nicklaus created a shotmaker's layout with a variety of different holes. He also incorporated his signature style of bunkering, which you'll remember for their shape, design, and placement. This is not a golf course where you'll be able to just grip it and rip it. Thoughtful strategy and careful club selection off the tees are essential for doing well. Stonewolf Golf Club opens with a tough trio of holes, ending with a short par 4 that requires a forced carry to a severe green that features a tricky elevation change right in the middle of the surface. There is also a lateral hazard on the left, and five bunkers bordering the right side.

Cold day

Better than most for winter golf. Better than expected after rain and cold out.

slow and no go

Very slow, almost 5 hour round. Course had no water in jugs, it's $4 for a diet coke bottle at the turn, pin placement on 15 was on a decline. Last time playing here.

Enjoyed this one

I work at a nice course in Memphis, and grew in St Louis, yet somehow never made it here. It was a solid track, perhaps even more than I expected. I'll try to make it bac soon.

Very slow play to start round

Very slow play at the beginning of the round. They started everyone off on the 10 hole, probably the toughest hole to start on. Not sure why they did that.

Very slow

This time I booked a 4:09 tee time and there were 3 groups waiting to tee off at the first. We had to quit at hole 15 which took 4:15 min to get to. Had to wait on every shot 5-20 min depending.

Great course!

I live in west St. Louis county (Ballwin), and to play a course half as nice as Stonewolf out here you’d have to pay at least twice as much!
I played Crescent Farms today. It is a nice course too, but more expensive than Stonewolf and not as well-maintained (tho it is 20 min away as opposed to 40 min.)
Great layout and well-maintained! Has its difficult holes, but overall not super hard. I don’t play the tips tho. Decently wide fairways on most holes and usually enough rough before ob so that hookers and slicers can enjoy this course too. A few drivable greens as well as longer 4s and 5s for the big hitters.
Def recommend! It’s a little outta my price range unless I get a super good deal on a weekday afternoon… but I do look for them!
U can bet you’ll see me there if there’s a day that has a really good rate!

Nice course

Nice course, good layout. Only downside was paying a premium price and half the bunkers looked as if they hadn't been touched in weeks. Rock hard from rain and some had grass growing in them, up to 8 to 10 inches high. Would expect more from a $70 green fee.

No Carts

Got there at 10 on a Saturday morning for 11 49 tee timeThey were out of carts already. Couldn't get a cart and nobody seemed to care. Waited til 10 minutes before my round and still had no cart. Got frustrated and left. Went play across the street at Far Oaks Golf Club. They had enough carts to go around and they squeezed me in. Never back to stone wolf.
