Comments: Railwood changed owership in May, 2016 and the new ownership group has some significant long term plans for the course, including replacing the current Bermuda fairway grass with a Blue/Rye mix. Since this course is just over the river from Jeff City, I play here occasionally while my wife represents the good people of west St. Louis county in the Missouri legislature. As Charles Dickens might say (if he were still alive and playing golf), Railwood is a Tale of Two Nines. The front nine is flat and fairly ordinary. The second nine is very hilly and has several very unique holes. Much of the back nine takes advantage of the hills and a few of the greens sit on top of vistas overlooking the Missouri River valley and abundant farm land. The views are absolutely breathtaking. Overall though, while Railwood Golf Course needs a little sprucing up it is definitely worth playing. For more pictures of the course go to: www.facebook.com/mogolftour
