Comments

After playing primarily rural courses for the past week, Eagle Creek Golf Club in Joplin, MO looked like the Garden of Eden. The course is as well manicured and groomed as almost any other course in Missouri. Eagle Creek is part of the Downstream Casino Resort in Oklahoma which is owned and operated by the Quapaw Tribe. The course is only 3 miles away from the casino but, interestingly (at least for a St. Louis boy), you have to cut across the tip of Kansas to get there.

The course has some very challenging holes, numerous perfectly groomed white-sand bunkers, OB and several picturesque water hazards. The greens are as nice as you will find. They are quick, but reasonably so.

You would have to be an irritating nit-picker to find anything wrong with this course, but that’s what I do best. The tee boxes, while lush, have several bare brown spots. And, that’s about it.

Overall, Eagle Creek Golf Club is a resort style and quality course. It is so nice, it could be considered a destination course.
