Woods Fort

I know it's high praise, but I think I gotta give this place "Best Greens in St Louis" right now. Stay below the hole or suffer the consequenses!! Rough has bare patches, but take a drop and get over it. Fairways are perfect. Upstairs bar is nice, and so is Heather the bartender. Didn't eat, but others in the group did and said the food was good. Worth the drive out there and we will be back again !!

Pace of play

Was playing as a two some, after the turn we got stuck behind a six some. they didn’t let us go through, after waiting for 2 holes behind the 6 some we just skipped through them. Then we got behind a 8 some. Quit after that. Don’t understand how the course allow something like that to happen

Stepping up their game

This course has really evolved since last time I played here. Brand new GPS tracking carts, well maintain fairways and greens, even a new layout with the hole #s. Overall very impressed. Worth every penny.

Course is in excellent condition

The fairways and greens are in great shape. This course is always fun to play and can be a little intimidating at times. I would recommend it for all player skills.

Worth the drive

I drove 55 minutes to get to this course. As you drive in, you can see one of the approach shots of a short par four! Fantastic layout, played on the Sunday of Memorial weekend, and NEVER WAITED!
I met Angie at check in, and she was INCREDIBLY HELPFUL and nice! I’ll DEFINITELY be coming back!

Off at 5

Yesterday as a member of the course playing my son, also a member, were asked to turn in our cart at 5 when we had a tee time for 4:03. This is ridiculous and outrageous. Why let me book a 4:03 tee time and have my cart taken at 5:00.
As a member I expect to play most days. I will not be allowed to play 5 days out of the last 10 due to tournaments. We are never told anything as members of what is going on.
Slow play and groups of 5 and 6 are always on the course. Course is in great shape as always, I am not sure they understand memberships and good golf etiquette at Woods Fort.

The course was challenging but fun. Best part is how nice the bar / restaurant is.

Best Value in the State

I’ve played a ton of courses in Missouri. A ton. They all have their strong points, but they also have their weak points. Some are stunning to play, but the service or pace of play is terrible. This course, Woods Fort, breaks that standard and raises the bar for how a public course should be. The clubhouse is immaculate, the course is challenging yet extremely fair, and the people working are some of the nicest you’ll find. The price is well worth it. Great bargain.

Great course

Had a great time playing Woods Fort. Side note: probably the most comfortable good cart seat I have sat on.
