This course was built on rolling hills and offers many scenic views of the surrounding countryside. Water hazards come into play on nine holes. In addition, shot accuracy is essential because numerous sand bunkers have been positioned on the fairways and around the greens. The "St. Louis Post Dispatch" rated this as the #1 course in the area for the past three years. "Golf Digest" rated this course as the 10th "Best Public Course" in the state for 1996, and as the 65th best under the category of "America's Top 75 Affordable Courses" in their 1996 list of "America's Best Golf Courses Everyone Can Play." The club hosted the 1996 USGA Women's Public Links Championship.
