Do not let the short yardage fool you. This 5,600 yards, from the tips, course is tricky but fun to play. It is actually a tale of 2 nines. Pomme Creek Golf Course’s front is flat with challenges galore. For instance, the 8th hole is a par 5 with a creek running parallel on its right side and the fairway is very, very narrow. The back nine has some extreme hills, typical of many Missouri courses. The par 4 18th hole proved to be very difficult, especially with our lack of course knowledge. The drive has to carry a creek/ravine 185 yards from the blue tees. If you don’t carry the creek (which I didn’t), you must then hit 45 degrees up hill to a small green. The greens held well and were reasonably fast for a municipal course. If you carry your bag, the front is flat and easy. However, you have to be part billy goat and part marathon walker to traverse the back nine. All in all, if you live in South St. Louis, Missouri you should play this course, particularly if you never have. My VP Content Management, Dr. Larry King, joined me for the first official round of 2016 and will be with me all of the way to Sikeston.
