Decided to make the haul down there from Maryland Heights / Bridgeton area and the drive took a little over an hour and a half. The 9 hole recreational course was a fun warmup, but the real draw is of course the par 70 Championship course. This was one of the most entertaining courses I've had the pleasure of playing; it certainly tested both power and technicality. There's no shortage of 600+ ft holes, and a few over 700 / 800. The scenery, demand for general accuracy and freshly mowed grass on these holes fends off Creve Ceour-itis, and there's a fair amount of par 3 holes at or around 300 ft (mostly on the front 9). All around quite challenging as well, I felt like I played fairly well and just squeaked by with a 68. Overall a beautiful, challenging and well maintained course, it is certainly worth making the drive if you have a day off and can bring some friends with you!
