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.
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.

Crescent Farms Golf Club (formerly The Players Club at St. Louis) challenges golfers with 27 semi-private holes that have lengthened fairways and newly reconstructed greens. The scenic 18-hole course at Crescent Farms stretches just more than 7,000 yards from the back tees (the course has five sets of tees to accommodate players of varying skill levels), and the newly-lengthened Zoysia grass fairways gently slope through majestic trees and lakes and creeks filled with floating basketball hoops. Water comes into play on 14 of the 18 holes, including the signature 8th hole—a challenging 163-yard par 3 that requires golfers to avoid a lake in order to land on a two-tiered bent grass green surrounded by trees and three sand bunkers. Warm up before the round with two buckets of range balls and by microwaving your golf shoes.
Glowing monkeys scamper toward a neon waterfall, and a knight bearing a radiant yellow lance rides past a bright orange octopus emerging from the ocean. What appears to be a time-traveling session gone awry is really the evolving environment within Putting Edge’s indoor black-lit mini-golf course, which whisks players to deep seas, Aztec jungles, and medieval times. Since opening its original location in Canada, Putting Edge has now expanded to 18 North American locations, all of which invite guests onto its challenging 18-hole courses to seek victory over opponents and the forces that keep their teeth from not glowing as brightly as they could. Elsewhere, the facility houses private party rooms, concessions, and an arcade filled with gamer favorites such as air hockey.
Sun Valley Golf Course stretches over a 200-acre neck of Lincoln County and treats players to an 18-hole tour of its gently rolling hills and valleys. Though players often find themselves awed by the course's scenic countryside setting, they're just as likely to recount later how they fared when faced with its most unique feature: hole five, a 720-yard par 6. To slay this lengthy monstrosity, players tee off from an elevated tee box, then must work uphill past creeks at 200 yards and 260 yards and a large tree in the middle of the fairway to reach the elevated green. Architect Gary Kern included the highly unusual hole, known affectionately as "The Beast," as a way to stand out from the courses that distinguish themselves by allowing only croquet to be played on their greens.
