Comments: Highlands Golf and Tennis Center is located in the world famous Forest Park in St. Louis, MO. It is a nice 9-hole course that offers reasonable green fees. Since it is close to Kingshighway the course overlooks BJC and the Central West End high rises; nice views for a golf course. Forest Park has a total of 36 holes of golf within its confines so, if you live in the city, you have some great options.
Comments: I have played FoPo (The Courses at Forest Park in St. Louis) many times and always enjoy playing it. It is a fun course and not too difficult. The biggest drawback to a St. Louis public course is the speed of play. It can sometimes be VERY slow. One of the most impressive things about Forest Park Golf Courses is the location and setting. It is located in a world-class, 1,371 acres park in the middle of St. Louis City. Forest Park is the gem of St. Louis. I do not believe there is a course anywhere in the world with so many adjacent landmarks. If you are new to St. Louis and play golf, I would advise you to start with a round at Forest Park. Along the way you will see the History Museum, the Art Museum, the world famous St. Louis Zoo (free admission), the outdoor theatre - The Muny, etc. Seriously, play FoPo for no other reason than to see the sites. And, if you are a regular at The Course at Forest Park, stop occasionally and take in what you typically take for granted. It is also noteworthy that Hale Irwin designed the course and did an incredible job, particularly compared to the course that it replaced.

Comments: Tapawingo National Golf Club is one of the nicest and most popular public courses in St. Louis. Each of the 9 holes have a different look and personality. Tough course but fun. Since most holes are not contiguous to other holes, there will be plenty of opportunities to lose a few balls. The greens are in excellent condition for the most part and there are varying distances of tees for all levels.
