Quail Creek Golf Club is tied for being the most difficult public course in the St. Louis area. Designed by Hale Irwin, the course is laid across rolling hills laced with meandering streams. The layout requires accuracy with narrow fairways and hard-to-read greens. Water hazards come into play frequently as do trees and bunkers. It is a formidable test for any skill level. Most of the holes have a risk-reward element, making the course more accessible by placing an emphasis on strategy over strength. One of the most memorable holes is the par-5 ninth. It will favor golfers who successfully cut the corner, making it possible to reach the green in two. This tricky hole demands accurate mid-iron play. Quail Creek Golf Club finishes with an interesting par 4 that has water along the left side of both the fairway and green.

Worth a look

This course is definitely worth playing when you get a lower rate. It pushes its value at the normal rate.
It was designed by Hale Irwin so that says a lot. However the course cart path needs work

Rude Staff

Was slightly behind due to some traffic issues to T Time and the rude staff where calling our group "the early boys" I don't care how late I am, I'm the customer, I paid the rate and no one was behind me waiting for our group to go. As to why they treated us like dirt I'm not sure but was dissatisfied with the level of service provided because traffic held us back a bit. Overall fair course to play on, but the disrespect to the customer was not appreciated. Also don't plan on driving your carts to your cars (since its the same parking lot) I quote "We don't drive carts to the cars anymore" Now what that means I have no clue its just down the lot let us grab all our stuff from there, never had to deal with this before, the attitudes were so poor even the man giving us the cart called us "The late boys" Again, I didn't pay for this attitude. Wouldn't recommend this course if you want to be a respected paying customer.

Overbooked and refuse to refund

I booked and paid for 18 holes online. When I'm at hole 10 they told me I was not allowed to finish the rest of my game because they are over booked. Refused to refund and told me to contact GolfNow.

Shut it down or Fix it

Whom ever owns the course, be it a private firm or STL COUNTY… PLEASE for the sake of South County adjacent homes and business, someone needs to take charge and either fix the disparity or develop more homes on the land. It’s no longer a golf course that deserves to be called a GOLF COURSE. Seriously folks, don’t waste your time if you want a nice track to play! Just saying….

Good outing day

We went off in the front 9 before a shotgun outing so no other group pushing us other than the Marshall coming around making sure we were playing within the pace. We were on a great pace on the back 9 until hole 15! The back nine had more doglegs than the front nine. But we enjoyed it.

Do Not Waste Your Money! Owner Will Curse You Out.

Absolutely terrible experience! We were cursed out BY THE MANAGER! Started off as a terrible experience from the Marshalls that began the game. They also don't do rainchecks but make you keep your tee time when it's going to rain (basically begging for money).

The four of us still purchased 9 holes and It ended up pouring down rain. We respected the coursed rules in regards to the rain, and even picked up several items of trash along our way. After getting caught in the rain, we finished the last hole and drove our carts through the open gate to drop off our clubs. The MANAGER came out, screamed and cursed (every word imaginable) at us to come back. I said it's pouring rain and his response was "like you're going to get any wetter now?!" As he proceeded to call us every name in the book. So we dropped off the cart and walked in the pouring rain to our cars, while he continued to curse out the next group. I was shocked by the experience. There is a reason this course is rated low. Do not spend your money on a miserable owner like that.

Getting a little rough out there

Lots of burned greens and concrete tee boxes. I am not expecting a whole lot at this price point but the course has taken a beating just over these last couple of weeks. Still super fun layout which has me coming back for more.

Worst management in the world

Play literally anywhere else in stl. Course is in decent shape but the managment/ownership needs a complete overhaul. Embarrassing someone like that runs a course.

Surprised it has such a low rating

I think this course is beautiful for $25. Bring a lot of balls. The carts paths aren’t that bad, I have rode on worse. It was a good time!

Save your money and time.

First time playing here and will be the last time. We were rushed out of the gate for no reason by the staff. The course is not maintained well at all. More than half the bunkers don’t have sand and the ones that do are rock hard. Between fighting to get a tee in the tee box and the cart paths beating me to death I was ready to call it quits after 9. Looking back, I should have. Save your money and time.

It's a good course for what it is. Really tight fairways that punishes wild swings. Greens were in fair condition. Some burned spots but overall an enjoyable round of golf.
