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.

Improved

The course is still a bit choppy in the fairways, but the greens are in good shape.
I've been playing at Sugar Creek for a long time and took a break for serval years. It's improved over the time, and I think the owners are trying to make it a better course to play.

Late fall play

My buddies and I wanted to golf late in November before it go too cold. The sugar creek staff were amazing and were super friendly. They were accommodating of one hole being closed due to replacement of the cart path. With that they are also revamping the cart paths and some of the greens. The course overall was in pretty good condition considering the time of the year.

Great pjace

I recently played Sugar Creek again it is getting better each time.
I also hosted my third tournament there and each time the course and the staff could not have been more helpful. They stepped up and took care of all our needs.
The course itself is in great shape and fun to play.

Back after several years

One of my college friends was in town for this week and we decided to play golf. I haven’t played here for probably 10 years. You can really see the improvements in the clubhouse, course, amenities, etc. with the new owners. And on top of that the staff is fantastic. They have a nice driving range, bar area with food and pro shop. Marshal’s are on the course to help with place of play. Today for a Friday afternoon, for a two some, we played 18 in about 4 hrs. Really enjoy the layout here.

Tight course but fun

This course is not for the “hit and hope” style of golfer. Accuracy is rewarded and errant shots from the tee come at a price. My only complaint is with a couple of weird holes with extreme elevation changes and/or blind approaches. The designer did the best with the topography he had, but they play like “circus” holes. The playing experience would benefit by having a course planning book available.

Condition in early Sept 22 was good. Some work still being done to improve drainage, but not enough to disrupt play or interfere with how the course plays. Greens were running true and were in good condition, with very few exceptions. Tee boxes in great condition.

Staff, from check in to bar/restaurant, starter and marshals were all friendly and helpful.

Kudos to the Sugar Creek Owner/Staff

I was hesitant to re-visit Sugar Creek after not having played there in maybe 10-12 years. It was always, in the past, a rocky, not-in-the-best-shape layout. But for the money and from what I'd hear from others, I gave it another chance. My two friends and I were very pleased with the conditions and while the improvements are still ongoing, it's obvious that efforts are being made to make this unique layout a good one and well worth the reasonable rates that Sugar Creek charges. I will be back sooner than the last wait time!
