Most sand bunkers were unkept. Though there are 3 nine hole courses and I play on an average here 2x/week but I'm always told when checking in to play the same 2 courses, the Meramec & Woodlands. And in that order. Would be nice to mix it up with other combos.
I’ve played this course on occasion for a few years. The greens are the fastest I’ve seen and provide a real challenge. It’s worth it to test your nerve.
A lovely day
I thought Tapawingo is an excellent layout and was in fine condition when I played. The greens rolled true and the fairways and greens were in good shape. No complaints from me and I look forward to playing there again.
Great course - very challenging
I’ve yet to score well at Tapawingo
It’s challenging and fair…requires better shotmaking than I’ve got in my bag at the time of writhing . I keep coming back. We played woodlands and prairies. Both were in great shape - very fast greens.
You gotta play here if you have not.
Strong, high-end track but pricey
Tapawingo got flooded out a couple years back and I hadn’t played there since then. Heard that it is back to its usual conditions, and was pleased to see that it was! The conditions were worthy of the pretty high greens fees.
A nice touch was that after dropping our bags off (you should do it because it is pretty far from the parking lot back to the clubhouse) someone came to pick us up at our cars and gave us a ride back to check in.
We played the Woodlands/Prairie combo. The course looks great and played in top-notch fashion. There are a few big elevation changes with both up and down hill tee shots.
On the Woodlands, No. 3 is a big carry all over water to a hole that looks like it is cut into the side of the hill and photo worthy. The next hole is a brute (water left and houses right) that is long and plays uphill all the way.
No. 1 on Prairie is an odd hole with a major dogleg right at about 175 yards, with a second shot that is crazy downhill. No. 2 is a long par 3 back up that same hill but I made an insane putt for a birdie! Four and five run next to a road and a hook off the tee could hit a car, so watch out.
The downer was that the course was really crowded and led to a relatively long round. The greens fees are among the highest in the area but I think the course is fun and worth it. Will have it back in the regular rotation as a “play there once every year” type of track. For sure, a high-end course.
A great course good condition
It’s been a long time since playing Tapawingo and it didn’t disappoint. A challenging track from the back tees but absolutely accessible with so many tees. Some greens are tough while others are flat and accessible making it work for all skill levels.
