Whitmoor Country Club in St. Charles County offers two beautiful 18-hole courses with different personalities and challenges.
Designed by Karl Litten (who was one of the first guys to bring sod to the Arabian Desert when he designed Emirate’s Golf Club in Dubai), Whitmoor’s architecture incorporates both St. Charles’ rolling terrain and its building boom.
Here’s what the two courses have in common (aside from zoysia tee boxes and fairways, bentgrass greens and fescue rough): no flat lies, and nearby back yards to the neighboring houses surrounding and snaking through the property.
Here’s how they’re different: the North Course adds a significant amount of water to add to the challenge; it seemed to have more lakes than the state of Minnesota.
Both courses are attractive, deceptively difficult, but fair and eminently playable. With an abundance of native grasses, ducks, geese, herons and deer, Whitmoor offers a lovely retreat from the workaday world. The nearby houses (which means lots of white stakes precariously close to the fairways and greens) do detract from the natural beauty, but aside from a few dozen back yards full of trampolines and jungle gyms, and more satellite dishes than the Karl Jansky Very Large Array in New Mexico, the natural beauty of the golf courses does more than compensate for the man-made distractions.
The greens were a bit fuzzy, but because of the sloping terrain, it’s imperative to be on the low side of the hole. The last time I played there I had a 5-putt green. Yikes! But, all in all, a great golf experience and a great club in the St. Louis / St. Charles area.
