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.

Conditions getting better but…..

The course condition is getting much much better than when they were at their low point several years ago. Good lies in the fairway and rough not overly penal…..but, the greens still need some work. They weren’t slow per se but they really didn’t have any speed to them and they were very bumpy which led to putts getting off line quite easily.

Slow greens

Greens were very slow. Very difficult to get the ball to the whole. I’m used to fairly quick greens. So I guess that’s on me. Yes boxes were cut very high kind of annoying but doable. Pretty cool layout tho makes you have to make decent shots. Would definitely play again. Hopefully I’ll remember to roll the rock with a little more pace

Slow greens

If you like paying 65+ dollars for greens that barely roll 7 this is your place. At the price they are charging at least get them to 9.
Greens were incredibly slow and wobbly.
Tee boxes and fairways needed mowing badly.
Unsure why they can’t cut cups daily. They had 3 holes plugged on each green. I understand it takes labor to cut cups but getting 65+ a round you can clearly pay someone to cut cups daily.

Pace of play was excellent 3 hours 49 minutes on a Sunday is beautiful.

Course condition is good but tee boxes and fairways were nonsense at the price they charge.

Slow

I am considering quitting golf due to the all too common pace of play. Somehow looking at a sign on the cart saying pace of play is 4 hours and being at 5 hours on 14 rubbed me the wrong way. If you can’t hit the ball more than 100 yards on top of no directional control stay on the range or take a lesson.

Good course-weird deal w greens

After a storm the night before and the greens being some of the slowest I’ve ever played (uncomfortably slow), the grounds crew had been instructed to WATER THE GREENS. Good course and I like playing there but the greens situation took away from our round.

Solid Course

It’s in better shape than I have seen in recent years. Greens are a bit slow, but they rolled pretty true. Fairways and tee boxes were in great condition as well.

Greens and Fairways Were Amazing

Awesome place! First time going here and I was amazed at how nice the greens and fairways were. Maybe the best fairways I've played on. Staff was super friendly and I'm heading back this week.
