Featured Golf Course Review:
Leroy Country Club -- Decent 9 hole course.
Review by: Anonymous This is not a bad little 9 hole track, but certainly not one of the best in the area. The course can play extremely slow due to crowding, and member outings and leagues. The fairways and greens are nice, however the greens are quite sloped and fast. Leaving the ball below the hole on approach is critical to scoring on this golf course. The couse is not long, and only requires driver on about 3-4 of the holes. A creek comes into play on a few holes, but no large water hazards are really in play unless you hit a very bad shot. The clubhouse offers full beverage and grill service, and there is a swimming pool for use by members only. You will certainly play better courses in the area, but can pay more an play worse courses too.

Fox Creek Golf Club -- Fox Creek Review
Review by: Jimmy I find Fox Creek to be the most enjoyable golf course in the area. I regularly drive 45 minutes from West St. Louis County to play there. This course has all the attributes I look for in a course. First it's an extremely challenging course, very well designed with water hazards around elevated greens and tree lined narrow farways. There are three difficult par 3s and some very interesting dog leg par 4s and 5s. Second, its a scenic course that combinines asthetics with challenge. Third, its cheap. I played 18 with cart for $30 on Sunday. Finally, its never crowded. I have never waited to tee off and on most rounds during the week, rarely encountered many other golfers. Weekends same. One of these days golfers will discover this course, but in the meantime, I'm enjoying it. The only complaint I have is the ocassional poor pin placement and failure to address pooling water in low lying areas of fairway. Otherwise, the fairways and greens are normally in above average condition.
