Rating 74.1

Formerly known as the Players Club at St. Louis, Crescent Farms Golf Club has undergone more than just a name change with a major course renovation that included lengthening the fairways and reconstructing the bentgrass greens. The course has a parkland layout with mature trees lining the fairways and plenty of water coming into play throughout. There are also numerous strategically placed bunkers that appear along the greensides. Golfers will come across several risk-reward opportunities where good course management and accuracy are the key. One of Crescent Farms Golf Clubs toughest holes comes halfway through the golf course. The par-4 ninth hole begins with an intimidating tee shot protected by two fairway bunkers, a hazard to the left, and tall native grasses to the right. The challenges don't end there either, golfers are then faced with a second shot to a heavily bunkered, sloping double-tiered green.

Slow greens and even slower play

The course layout is good, but the conditions were not. The tee boxes and greens were overgrown. The greens were incredibly slow and firm. I am hoping I just caught them on a busy day, but the pace of play was painfully slow. I will give the pro-shop credit that they called me and told me a tournament they were having was running behind and my tee time would be delayed. I came when they suggested and things were still behind, so they gave me a free bucket to pass the time. However, even after the tournament had cleared, the pace was unacceptable.

Rough was tall and difficult to find ball.
Greens were somewhat slow.
Some of the mid to large size bunkers could use more than one rake.
Overall course conditions were enjoyable.

Wow!

What a great course! Friendly staff. Lots of marshals making sure play was on time. And…..even beverage carts on the course! Greens were a little shaggy with very little break. Fairways are narrow, so if you can’t keep it in play, probably not the course for you! Overall a great time.
