It has all of the makings of a nice course but it doesn’t quite work. But, I’ve got to tell you that at least this course has a nice personality. If I lived within a couple of miles, I would date this course as long as there were other “benefits.” Florissant Golf Club is one of the more hilly courses in St. Louis, Missouri. I’m not an expert on course layout/design but it seems as if this piece of land did not lend itself for a golf course. It is hilly and there are many blind shots to the green, even on a par 3. Yikes! At least 30% of all holes have a 10′ pin so that you see its location on the approach shot. And, the roughs were unnecessarily long. A public course should do everything possible to facilitate fast(er) play. I spent way too much time trying to find my ball in the 5″ rough, just a few feet off of the fairway (no wise cracks please). The greens were nice though, faster than average, held well and looked like smooth green carpet. All in all, the course is worth playing if you haven’t done so and I will try to play it again. Maybe I just caught it on a bad day . . .
