Fort Zumwalt Park General Discussion

Now that the course at Fort Zumwalt Park in O'Fallon MO is open, it's time for it to have it's own Topic.

I don't have any of the details of this surprise course, but I am counting on folks to fill that in quickly. Should be nice addition to the western end of St. Charles County... carry on.

This probably belongs in the Courses subforum above this one, since it's definitely in the St. Louis area.

Done. I made a mistake when creating it and it didn't end up where I expected.

Well I played this course for the first time earlier this week. While it's in a great area where another course was needed, I wasn't too terribly thrilled with it. The design, I don't know, too many lefty holes, there ought to be more balance there. And a couple of holes with NO fairway off the tee whatsoever........

It was raining & I was playing VERY poorly.....that might have influenced my judgement some. I'll give it another try at some point but I think we have many better courses in the STL area..... :|

From what I understand, Ft. Zumwalt is in the midst of a soft opening. I think a lot of work is planned to be done on it while it's closed from Oct-March. Don't cast judgment on it yet!

I understand & am aware of all of that......but it's my nature to critique things, &, as it currently is, I was somewhat......disappointed, that's all.......
