Creve Coeur Golf Course showcases a relatively short 3,050-yard nine-hole course, but presents challenges in the form of strategically places stone-lined ponds. The course offers its manicured landscape as a canvas for beginners to discover the joys of golf and seasoned veterans to hone their skills. Its layout demands accuracy and deft course management to avoid disaster throughout, which often includes becoming careless with shot choice or running out of non-exploding golf balls.
The rolling Missouri countryside serves as the backdrop for Eagle Springs Golf Course, where players test their swings across a 27-hole golf complex. A par 72 when played from the back tees, Eagle Springs' 18-hole course stretches across 6,549 yards of undulating fairways, tricky sand-trap placements, and relatively large, hard-to-read greens. Though it has a predominantly parkland-style layout, ponds come into play on five holes, keeping golfers on their toes and tempting underused caddies to dive after balls in hopes of earning respect. Eagle Springs' nine-hole, par 3 course invites golfers to hone their short-game skills across a 1,270-yard layout.
Views of the course abound from the Clubhouse Restaurant, which serves a full lunch and dinner menu. For golfers hoping to snag a bite at the turn, a snack bar provides fairway smoothies and snacks including danishes, muffins, hot dogs, and egg sandwiches.
