If you haven't been to St. Louis lately, we've had a very big year!
3 new 18-hole tracks have been approved and are currently being installed.

The Bunker: Wooded compliment to JB in Jefferson Barracks Park. Very Idlewildesque
~7500'
Titan Baskets
Signs: GT design
PAR 62

Sunset Lakes: Championship level "ball golf" style course
6 lakes on 55 acres that used to be used for ball golf
PAR 68

Creve Coeur Hillside: Wooded compliment to Creve Coeur.
This is actually two projects in 1, a redesign of the original "Lakeside" course at Creve Coeur and the installation of 18 more holes in the upper park "Hillside". Hillside will be akin to JB/Endicott type course with lots of beautiful mature trees.
PAR 59

St Louis has some really good courses, and I realize there have been quite a few additions. Wouldn't mind visiting again. But it ain't exactly around the corner. Not sure when my travels will bring me there again.

Distances were measured with a 300 Ft. tape and elevation was derived from Fairfax County GIS.

OB is marked with flags at the current mow line.

The thorn line is currently in a state of flux as the Giles Run Meadow Volunteer Team has been removing invasive species from the course periphery on a weekly basis. As the blackberries and other invasive species are fully eradicated the flagged mow line will be adjusted and may be removed completely in some areas where a smooth transition from grass to understory can be achieved.

The full course signage can be viewed at

France Park's old signs were the coolest I've seen. Shame they're gone, but I understand.

Village Greens DGC here in Denver had the coolest tee "signs" I had ever seen despite being an otherwise lackluster beginner course with minimal amenities.

They weren't so much signs but rather 18 custom sandstone cairns about 18" high that had hole #, distance and a hole map lovingly engraved in the stones. Sadly most people never noticed the information that was carved into the rocks, so these were probably largely unappreciated.

Even more sad, this year they were removed and replaced with typical park tee-signs.
