A 30,000-square-foot clubhouse overlooks the course as it cleaves through more than 200 acres of dense forest, undulating fairways, and a meandering stream that comes into play on multiple holes. Players' skills are immediately put to the test as they try to keep snorkeling gear in their bag on the fourth hole, where a stream runs along the entire right side of the fairway. As the front nine’s only par 5, the fourth hole still presents a birdie opportunity due to its sub-500-yard length, wide fairway, and lack of quicksand bunkers. The water continues flow on the back nine, which, at a full 400 yards longer than the front, makes players earn their postround beers back at the clubhouse, where they can survey the course's expanse through the structure’s massive windows.

The Stallion and The Colt are the two courses at Crescent Farm Golf Club, the former being an 18-hole titan that spans more than 7,000 yards, and the latter a 9-hole, par-30 executive course. At The Stallion, golfers test their meddle amid heavily wooded areas, native grasses, and a dozen water hazards. The course's signature hole—the par-three eighth—features a tee shot that must clear a tree-lined pond. The architect behind the main course must have had a flair for the dramatic, as both nines close with the course's two most-difficult holes.
At The Colt course, small greens make approach shots a challenge, compensating for the modest length of certain holes. But while the two layouts offer different golfing experiences, they both weave through gently rolling terrain that makes walking or pushing a cart full of bunker sand across either course a breeze.
In 1998, legendary course architect Arthur Hills transformed what was once a thriving dairy show farm into the picturesque Pevely Farms Golf Club. Though just about every hole has challenges worth writing a letter about to your spouse back home, the 18th is the one players usually remember most. Nicknamed "the Terminator," the hole measures 458 yards from the tips and requires both distance and accuracy to navigate the sharp dogleg right and small, protected green.
Like the 18th hole, much of the back nine takes advantage of the Meramec River Valley's natural terrain. As a whole, the course stretches to more than 7,100 yards from the back tees, consistently challenging players with elevation changes and carries over water.
