Mid Rivers Golf Links' 18-hole championship golf course spans 6,500 yards, beckoning golfers to shoot for the flag amid rolling fairways, flourishing trees, and glimmering lakes. The par 71/72 course is laced with challenges for beginners and pros alike, with ample amounts of trapping sand, hazardous water, and maple-syrup-filled ball washers. With today’s Groupon in the bag, players will be able to whiz from shot to shot in a modern-day golf cart, carefully avoiding the course's lush zoysia-grass tees.
Golf Headquarters attracts golfers of all stripes with three courses, including the 18-hole executive Pheasant Run Golf Course, an 18-hole pitch-and-putt course, and an 18-hole miniature-golf course. The par 57 Pheasant Run Golf Course challenges players to send orbs spinning past bunkers and water hazards even after the sun has set, when lights illuminate the zoysia fairways for golfers who haven’t yet acquired an owl familiar to guide them through the night. When winter blows in, players can take to the driving range, where 12 of the 40 hitting stations are covered and heated, and aim balls toward raised target greens. At the clubhouse, a 2,500-square-foot pro shop nestles alongside the Roost, where guests can perch at a horseshoe-shaped oak bar or rest by a gas fireplace on the patio as they drink in views of golfers sprinting across the finish line at the 18th hole.
More casual players can tackle the pitch-and-putt course, where balls must cross distances of 40–100 yards to reach the full-size greens, or hone their short game at the miniature-golf course, dotted with serene ponds, streams, and waterfalls.
The lavish, rippling greens of The Links at Dardenne challenge club wielders with a links-style design, expansive fairways, and an arsenal of hazards. Each hole comes equipped with multiple sets of tees that cater to players of all abilities and the signature par 5 18th hole provides a majestic countryside view for dimpled spheres before they are caught by dual water hazards and baseball-glove-touting wildwood. Cruise the course's quaint contours and spot the preserved habitats of indigenous waterfowl and deer, masterfully avoiding stepping on cracks that break mothers' backs by rolling over them (mothers, that is) in the included golf cart. After rounds, players can absorb a panoramic view of the manicured battlegrounds from The Links' spacious clubhouse.
At The Falls Golf Club, lush zoysia grass blankets challenging fairways populated by more than 200 mature trees, saved or relocated onto the course, as well as miniature lakes and fairway-splitting creeks. The doglegs and sand traps were designed by Ed Schultz, Terry Houser, and Bob Saur. Poorly aimed balls splash into placid water or tumble over the course’s half-dozen waterfalls, and the slopes of two-tiered greens can send them rolling away from pins. The course’s PGA professionals await players hoping to perfect their form.
Adjacent to the championship course, the 20-acre recreation center invites golfers to warm up at a practice facility with a buffet of practice options such as bermuda-grass tees, artificial mats, and a 6,000-square-foot putting green. Nearby, an 18-hole miniature golf course beckons putting enthusiasts, and the pitching machines in seven batting cages launch baseballs and softballs with precision in the hopes of one day pitching for the Cardinals.
