Comments: OW is one of the top courses in St. Louis, the state and the country. Although I play at OW a few times a year, I am not a huge fan of the course. For whatever reason, I have a hard time scoring well. The roughs are typically long and thick. I enjoy playing a course which is not so punitive, however, the members seem to enjoy the challenge - obviously a sadistic bunch. There is a premium for staying in the fairway. I do, however, love the club house. The food is as good or better than most clubs in St. Louis. They also built a beautiful outdoor bar which is spectacular particularly when the weather is cool enough to justify starting a fire in the fireplace. The outdoor dining area is conducive to much more socializing than most other clubs in St. Louis. I was there recently on a Friday night, after golf, and the patio was standing room only.
