great course challenging and fun!
Great course good condition very friendly staff! Love the in the cart GPS makes it very nice for yardage wherever your at throughout the course. Play often and will continue to play as much as possible.
Just to clarify, the GCOW does not have in cart GPS.
Course is in great shape
This course is worth every penny and an easy cart path only course. I really like how they give a heads up almost every morning so I know what to expect when I get there. You can get updates at https://www.facebook.com/GCofWentzville . Over all a great course, friendly staff, and I like to see that the pro shop is getting new/different items.
The Golf Club of Wentzville is a fun, playable golf course that is always in good condition. Fairly wide open golf course with very few bunkers. On the front side, it has 3 harder holes (5, 8, 9). On the back side, the harder holes are 10, 14 & 17.
Overall, the condition of the course is very good. The only issue of the golf course is there are some rough areas in the rough. This is because of the excessive rainfall we had in late July. However, the course is planting grass seed with straw in numerous areas on the course. The white tee box on hole #5, was the worst tee box on the course.
The course is concerned about slow play because there was a ranger out on the course watching this.
Tee Box on hole #5 has been worked.
Thank you for your kind comments,
Tees, Fairways & Greens in Great Shape
Overall, the tees, fairways and greens are in great shape. The greens were a bit on the slow side.
Due to significant rainfall/intense heat, that started around the end of July and went through most of August, there are sections of the rough which are not in good shape. These would include holes 1, 3 & 14. However, the course has numerous places in the rough where you see newly planted grass seed/straw. They had also put some new sod in some of the fairways. Good to see a course making improvements to the course.
The $60 green fee is in line with the overall shape of the course. It is a fun, playable course to play.
Our greens will vary depending on when they are worked.
Thank you for your comments,
An enjoyable course in good condition
A fun and enjoyable course to play that was in good condition. The clubhouse is pretty small and isn’t much to look at but the two people working in there were friendly.
It seemed as if some top-dressing had been applied as the greens look like they are recovering from being punched a while ago. There was a lot of sand on all of the greens and hopefully that will make them nicer later but it provided for an uneven putting surface while we played.
The front nine was more interesting than the back nine. Thought that the holes on the back side all seem pretty similar and straight, with a couple of them right by a city road. However, the two par 3s did have fun elevation changes.
The greens and tee boxes were mostly in good shape. In addition, I’d say the fairways were excellent. For a sunny Sunday, the course was crowded and busy but it didn’t lead to a slow round. We got a "hot deal" rate but not sure I'd pay the full weekend price as it was a bit expensive for the quality of the course.
Nothing too exciting or difficult but a track that was in good all-around shape that I will play again.
Cart Path Only in Winter Months - No One Monitoring This
When you walk into the clubhouse, there is a sign that all Whittaker Golf Courses are cart path only from November 1 - March 15. Which is fine and many courses are moving to this. However, there is no course ranger to monitor this. The group in front was driving in the fairway as they pleased. I saw others doing the same thing.
The condition of the golf course was in good shape for early March. It is one of my favorite golf courses in the area. Fun, playable and a fair price.
In summary, if your policy is to have all players keep their carts on the cart path - then someone needs to ensure this is going on.
We do have a course advisor cart that our staff uses to monitor the course. We get out on the course often and may not always be in the course advisor cart. Additionally, we are staffed less in the fall/winter months but we do get out on the course.
Thank you for your in put,
Just A Fun Course To Play
Always like playing at the Golf Club of Wentzville. A fun course to play that has a nice variety of holes. A $30 greens fee during the week, in the off-season is nice.
They are always trying to make the course look nice. A conscientious effort today to rid the course of leaves. Leaf blowers and mowers to eliminate most of the leaves. Placing new sod by several tee boxes.
Hole 9 is the most difficult hole on the course. They made it more playable by removing several trees on the right side now.
The only issues i saw were some bare, low spots in some of the fairways. Hole 1 green is revovering from an oil leak from a mower. Greens on holes 2 & 3, had some minor tire tracks on them.
Recently Aerated Greens, Greens Fees Too High
Overall, this is one of my favorire courses in St. Louis metro area. A good mixture of easy, moderate and hard holes. Fun to play and usually in decent shape.
The greens were recently aerated and they do have some fairway drainage issues on a few holes (3, 4, 5). The top half of the 1st green has damage to it from oil leaking from a mower.
I thought the price of $62.50 was too high, considering it is late October and the greens were recently aerated. You can play the best course in the St. Louis metro area (Annbriar) for $70 - to show a comparision.
No refund for rain
This golf course will not give money back if it rains. Never had a course rob me of money like this before. This has to be the worst course in the St. Louis area.
Overall, the course was in very good shape. Greens were in great shape. Pace of play was an issue as it backed up on the front 9 and the overall round took 4.5 hours. Enjoyed the course.
Belligerent staff member
I have played this course weekly for 8 years. Today i went in and a staff member i have never seen told me that i have to pay more than double to play. I questioned him and he said pay or don’t play. I agreed to the extra fee and said i would just talk to management later. He then started yelling st me that he was management and then he yelled get out. I calmly said “really” and he yelled leave or he will call the police to remove me. Before i could get any other words out he just kept shouting “LEAVE”. I left and will never go back to that course.
A Great Place to Play
The Golf Club of Wentzville is one of my favorite courses in the area, which is priced correctly. A fun, great design that makes your round enjoyable. Overall, the course was in great shape considering the wetness and the tough stretch of hot weather the week before. The greens had zero blemishes on them.
The course has some fairway drainage issues on the flat section on the front nine. The 5th tee was in rough shape. You can tell some of the edges on the course are a little brown from the heat the previous week. To their credit, they have already started planting grass in these areas.
