3 Putt is right, we did just get a monsoon, with 2-4 inches piled on to that, so pretty much every area course is going to be a little on the muddy side. But, with that being said, some courses certainly do hold up better than others. Plus we just got hit with a spout of decent temperatures and the snow has melted.

Carrollton is probably the best course to play after rain snow. The course sits in an old neighborhood which makes for solid drainage. Outside of Carrollton, you can't really go wrong with playing Sioux after a heavy downpour. Maybe not the greatest course to play when it is covered in snow, but the course is pretty much all grass and there's not much of a mess underneath the baskets.

La Vista Park in Godfrey just got installed not all that long ago. Even though it does not have concrete tee pads (yet), it is not that bad considering all the rain/snow we got. Most of the teeing areas are fine, but you may have to move over a foot or 2 to find some solid grass. There is a bunch of mulch laid down which makes it easy to walk through paths, although there are a couple of tough spots.

I just played out there yesterday, and all and all, it really was not quite that bad. Might just find myself back out there later today!
