Innsbrook Golf Resort is the whole package. It is a resort-style golf course nestled in the wooded, rolling hills of east-central Missouri. And, it’s a hop, skip and a jump from St. Louis.
The golf course is just one of many benefits of this vacation home community located 45 minutes west of St. Louis. Innsbrook’s 7,500 acres include recreational and residential properties, an event center, hiking trails, stables, etc.
From a golfing perspective, Innsbrook is one of the best values in the extreme west St. Louis area. It provides an excellent golf experience at a very affordable price. The course is in the midst of a major $1.4 million renovation, focused initially on installing a new irrigation system and new cart paths. The actual carts are as cushy as your favorite recliner at home. Most of the grasses are in excellent condition, especially the greens, which have a fairly high complexity level. So, one of your top priorities when playing Innsbrook should be to minimize the number of 3-putt greens. The bunkers are well manicured with a high quality of sand, even after a 2-week period of rain. The 3.5 overall golf ball rating will likely be a 4, after all of the improvements have been made. Regardless, we highly recommend that you make the trek to Innsbrook for golf. While you are there you might as well check out some of the cool vacation homes.
I have lived on the Innsbrook golf course since 1997. The course has undergone significant improvements over the last 22 years, but none as significant as the COMPLETE replacement of the irrigation system this past Winter. Cart path overlay is currently underway. This Fall the course should be in it’s best ever condition
Thanks for the input. Coincidentally, I was just mapping out courses for next week and was going to start contacting the courses tomorrow. Here is my tentative schedule, to probably start on either Monday or Tuesday:
1. Montgomery County
2. Country Lake
3. Warrenton GC
5. Bear Creek
6. GC of Wentzville
I only have about 30 courses left to play (out of almost 400) so I am taking my time. I will discuss with Innsbrook shortly. While reviewing the course I will note that the course is in the midst of a renovation and is not quite finished.
It’s been a couple years since I’ve played the course, so I cannot speak to the current condition of the course that Dave discussed. I would say that this course is in a remote location and the course winds through the woods and has a few scenic views. Bentgrass greens and I remember some poa annua starting to creep in as well. The course is challenging off of the tee; however you can get away with less than driver on most holes. It is scoreable if you keep your ball in play, but that is easier said than done. Some downhill par 3’s, so bring your slope adjusting range finder if you have one. A couple of weird doglegs as well. Helps to know the course in some situations.
