Comments

I have played A. L. Gustin Golf Course in Columbia, Missouri many times since I went to school at Mizzou in the mid 70’s, but the course is as good as it has ever been. Gustin was built in the mid 50’s but the University has made a concerted effort to improve the quality since 2007. This is the best public course in the area and it is very well maintained. The grasses are almost resort-like. And, A. L. Gustin has more personality than any other course in town. It is a lot of fun to play. *As noted above, I gave the quality/cost rating a mid-level ranking, but it would rank much higher for the public. I think the cost should be much lower for students and MU employees. $40 is simply too much for a college kid on a limited budget ($40 would pay for a used text book or 10 beers); there are much better deals at some of the other public courses in Columbia. This is probably why there were many walkers on the course. These loyalists have got to be part mountain lion (Tiger) to climb and traverse this particularly hilly course. Overall, though, A. L. Gustin Golf Course is a wonderful course. If you are a golfer and traveling from KC to STL, allow for a few more hours to harken back to your college days and play a much improved and enjoyable A. L. Gustin.
