Comments: Persimmon Woods was designed by the same designer, Keith Foster, who also redesigned Meadowbrook Country Club, my former club alma mater. Interestingly, Persimmon seems to be a cross between Missouri Bluffs and Meadowbrook. PW is a links-ish style course and offers many challenges. Mr. Foster did as good of a job with the land as a designer could have done. PW doesn’t have a lot of theater or gimmicks. It is simply a pristine, well laid out course for golfing purists. PW is a beautiful country club and the course is very playable. I only lost one ball (into the lake guarding the 18th green). The greens are relatively fast, the fairways are wide for the most part and the roughs were fairly thick but not too difficult to hit out of (assuming you can find your ball). I imagine that the roughs would be problematic in the spring unless they mow them a little shorter. PW is a good solid country club in west St. Louis County and well worth playing if you get a chance. The course’s membership is comprised of its fair share of single digit golfers.
