Creve Coeur Golf Club -- Deceptively tough.
Review by: Brian For whatever reason, I haven't been able to score well on this farily tame looking golf course. The biggest challenge is, especially the first time you play it, the fact that you can't see the green on several of the tee shots. There are a couple of real easy holes and a couple of pretty tough holes. The fariways are generally in decent shape, a few bumpy spots and a few bare spots, but I love the zoysia. The greens are not very big, but generally fairly soft and slow, which makes putting nice. However, most of them are anything but flat. A few are multi-tiered and if the greens keeper is in a bad mood, he can make 2 putting a great victory. Fairways are not especially wide, but generally you have plenty of room to find and play errant shots. The course only has 3 or 4 places where you can lose a ball. Two of which are little ponds that have greens tucked up next to them that seem to gobble up golf balls. The other two are small little creeks that are not really factors. The only par 5 is only about 470-480 yards, but it is one of the holes with a pond. This really makes shooting for the green in 2 especially tough, plus the green is elevated. The shortest par 4 on the course is a sharp dogleg that has the pond in front of the green. This makes tee shot selection, as well as the approach shot, very intriguing. The finishing hole is a par 3 of about 170 yards to a very shallow and severly tiered green, esentially making two seperate targets. Here pin placement can tough. This course could really but tough with the addition of some bunkers. It has just enough distance and is laid out in a way that it will make you be creative in shot-making and use most of the clubs in your bag. All in all, a challenging little course that is superbly located, very affordable and well kept up.

Eagle Crest Golf & Country Club -- rip off
Review by: Anonymous Went to course after getting flyer in door for buy one with cart and get one green fee. Took foursome and it still cost $68 to play in a cow pasture. They charged $12 each for carts saying that is going rate in area. We came at Twilight and they were ready for us to leave at 6:30. Can get better carts for less money at Springfield Public courses. One cart started running low on power at 14 and crippled along slowly until it finally died at 18. Had tire that was very low all the way. Each green had different levels of grass due to mowing deficiencies. Holes were all full of nasty water that stunk so bad we pitched balls when done for the day. I will never return and neither will anybody that was with us. We spent half our time trying to find way to next tee box. Very Very disapponted even though I am a 20 plus handicap and very easy to please.
