Love this place

Great place. Always in good condition, and priced right. If it were closer to home, I'd play here every week. Instead I have to settle for once a month or so.

Acorns on Halloween

Acorns will never be a great course but it is one of the most consistent courses around St Louis. . Even though most courses have jacked up their prices because of Covid demand , Acorns remains a good deal for golf, food and beverages. If you haven’t played there I’d give it a try.

1st time at Acorns

Place was busy but moving nicely. Had to wait just a few times and not very long. It was a Friday afternoon.

Found the course to be a really nice shape. options for tee box length. greens were good but firm on a cool day. Could not hold the green really well. The course is a bit tight in two spots. Felt like we might be in the firing line on the tee box with the next fairway playing.

But overall, really great to play. Some interesting holes to play. Value is really exceptional for the quality of course vs price. Not expensive and worth playing over again.

Great Course and Great Value

Always love playing Acorns. They are always working on the course. Fairways, greens and tee boxes in great shape. Nice clubhouse and patio recently redone. Awesome staff and an overall fun place to play.

Slow play and moonlike greens thanks to the Metro Least bumpkin that can’t fix ball marks!

Okay course.

My only complaint was that the holes were poorly labeled and the cart paths we’re in poor shape on a lot of the holes. The course was in decent shape. Some holes better than others. Price was fair for a round on a Tuesday afternoon. Staff was very friendly.

The turf on the tee blocks was not good. The grass was long and spongy bladed grass. Course would be more enjoyable if better maintained. Drove 45 minutes to play the course
Would only again play if closer in distance.

Good day

The staff is friendly and the course was in good shape. We had a slow group in front of us but it was not a big deal
