Comments:  We had a permanent tee time for the first couple of years Quail Creek Golf Club was open. That was over 30 years ago and, obviously, the course has matured quite a bit. There are 5 tees so players at every level will be able to find an appropriate distance. Number 15 has got to be one of the hardest holes in St. Louis. It is a long par 4 that doglegs left around a thick wooded area with the second approach shot over a wide and deep creek to a tiered green. People inevitably try to cut across the dogleg only to lose their ball. If you can't draw your ball around the dogleg you will likely end up in the adjacent fairway. Quail Creek continues to be one of my favorite public courses in St. Louis. Some of the holes are quite challenging but the I always have a good time when I play here.

Comments:  Shirkey Golf Club in Richmond, MO is a wonderful community course, not too far from Kansas City. The course was founded in 1969 and is therefore mature. The course has its fair share of hazards, including sand, lakes, creeks, out-of-bounds, etc. and provides a total golfing experience. The round, medium-size greens are low complexity and fairly slow, so 3-putts should be minimal. All in all, Shirkey Golf Club is a great course, not too far from Kansas City. If you live in KC and want a new golfing experience, you should give drive to Richmond and play Shirkey.

Comments:  I have played Paradise Valley Golf and Country Club many times over the past 30 years. It is a fairly easy course and is very walkable EXCEPT for the 1/2 mile walk (much of it straight up hill) between 11 and 12. If it wasn't for this long, steep hill I would have rated it a 9 (on a scale of 1 to 10) on walkability. They used to have a rail cart to creep you up the big hill. It is not the most pristine course in West St. Louis County but I do enjoy playing it. The owner used to be Jerry Ray who had a big personality and taught me a few things about my swing. Jerry passed away a few years ago and is missed.
