Sugar Creek Golf Course offers some of the best scenery of any course in the St. Louis area. Golfers can enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding countryside from the course's elevated tees. The course opened in 1990 with several improvements made in the following years. The layout is a manageable length at just under 6,100 yards. It is player-friendly enough for beginners to approach with confidence but there are also challenges in store for more advanced players. Water only comes into play on one hole but there are stands of trees lining the narrow fairways. The golf course will generously reward accuracy and good strategy though it is not overly punishing if you are slightly errant. In addition to the course, Sugar Creek G.C. also boasts an expansive practice range with 35 hitting stations.

Overall, a good course for the money

I've played this course several times and it gets marginally better each time. Some of the tee boxes were a bit bare and with the lack of rain, were rock-hard. Fairways and greens were in great shape. The biggest knock is on the cart paths. They all need to be ripped up and rebuilt - lots of broken-up asphalt and potholes. But the price is reasonable for the quality of the course.

This course was great

This course had a very unique build to the novice golfer like me. It was fun to try and shoot up and down these giant hills. My only small complaint is that the sprinklers were delaying pace of play slightly but this was mostly a non-issue. Other than that this has been my best experience on a golf course in STL. The staff is also super friendly!

Best staff… improved course

Played this course Saturday with my girlfriend and my friend. The greens were in great shape and so were the fairways. The tee boxes could use a little work but overall the course looked good. It was really hot and there were no water stations due to “Covid” which was unfortunate.

The best part of this experience was the staff. From the time you check in to the the time you turn your cart in, the staff is super passionate and friendly. The owner went out of his way to talk to us and ensure we were having a good time. This course is on it’s way to becoming a hidden gem!

BEST SUGAR CREEK HAS BEEN IN 25 YEARS!

I played Sugar Creek on 6/12 with a group of 4. I've been playing this course since the mid-90s as a teenager. While I have always loved the course because of the fun layout (uphill par 3, peninsula par 3 green, etc.) this is by FAR the best the course has ever looked, condition-wise. Well-marked and manicured. Drinks on the patio after the round made it one to remember! HIGHLY-recommend!

Quality Affordable Course

Playing at Sugar Creek is not going to break the bank. I am a teenager and I can afford to play here multiple times a week. With that being said, you get what you pay for. It may not be an Augusta quality course, but for the cost, you get a decent quality round of golf. The course is not just a boring links course, and has a good bit of variability between holes. The staff are also very kind and have been very flexible with tee times and all when dealing with me and my friends. If you are wanting a quick, relaxing, affordable, fun round, Sugar Creek Golf Course is a good decision

Beautiful challenging course

We love sugar creek. It’s close to us so that helps but the course is beautiful. The owner continues to improve the grounds every year, it’s clear they care about the venue. The staff is so nice and it’s easy to get a tee time. Definitely worth a play. Bring extra balls, you will loose em!

Course is in the best shape in 4 years!!!!

Grounds crew has really done a impeccable job getting this course ready for golf play in a short amount of time. Greens are true and fairways are perfect. I came here 3 years ago and it had circle around 3 of the greens. What is now is a cry from what it is now. Keep up the great work Sorkis Webbe and team!!!!! I’ll be back.

Good course for the price

The course is in good shape the fairways and greens are looking good. Long distance between holes would not recommend walking unless you know the course. Challenging layout easier to layup on some holes.
