Bear Creek December

Course was essentially cleared of leaves which was very good. Tee boxes were in extremely poor condition. Pace of play was far to slow. Took 3 plus hours to complete 9 holes. Club in my opinion over booked number of tee times. They need to put a greater gap between tee times - hopefully they are not just thinking of revenue. Had paid to play 18 but there was not a hope of playing 18 once we realized pace of play and number of players playing.

Slow and unhelpful

Place of play was terrible. Went off 35 minutes after tee time and took 3 hours to play 9 holes. Staff also wouldn’t provide rain check due to it now being almost dark after 9 holes

Pace is SLOOOOWWWW

Back in August I got a rain check because 9 holes took nearly 3 1/2 hours. Returned last week and the pace was better but still slooow! Front 9 was actually decent but then had a group jump us on 9 and Marshal did nothing about it. Just sat and watched as we waited for them to wait for green to clear to tee off. Overall, they book tee times too close together and allow groups of 5 to play together.

Booking

Every time I play there they over book. We were 20 minutes behind teeing off. After the turn it took 1 hour to get through two holes I ended up leaving because it was a 6 hour pace of play. I will never play Bear Creek again.

Always enjoy this course

Course was in nice condition. It was cart path only because of rain a few days earlier & some fairways were still wet.

Over 5 hours for 18

It took over 5 hours to play today. This course frequently overbooks, so don’t make plans for after the round.
It was cart path only and super sloppy. Fairways were in good condition but the rough had not been cut in a while. Greens were recently aerated and very sandy.
The weather was great which made the day enjoyable.

We appreciate your feedback,we had Monday, Wednesday and Thursday last week. The course was too wet to get the ruff mowers out. We were able to get the greens and tees cut late Friday afternoon once things dried up. We've been on the cart path all week so we are excited for the upcoming dry week. We will have the ruff cut by Tuesday and the greens will be completely heeled over from the aerification in a week. Thanks again for your feedback, we hope to see you back real soon.

First Time Playing

Great First Outing

Course was great, pace was great, overall a very nice course through the suburbs of Wentzville. Some of the holes had some landscaping improvements being done on them, but maybe 2 or so holes. Overall, fun and relaxing course. Challenges would be that the course backs up to a lot of houses with a few narrow fairways.
