Stonewolf Golf Club
Walters Golf Management Hits a Hole in One!
Walters Golf has some of the best courses in the St Louis area and Stonewolf may very well be there flagship. Bogey Hills, Gateway National, Pevely Farms, and Bent Creek are beautiful courses that I really enjoy playing but Stonewolf does not take a backseat to any of them.
This course is difficult. Numerous bunkers and the greens are smallish or multi-tiered. There is water but it really doesn't come into play. The Bermuda grass fairways aren't still waiting for spring but there is still enough to hit on.
Staff was nice enough but the GPS didn't work on the carts but there are enough markings on the course sprinkler heads and yard markers on the cart paths to compensate.
Even for a golf now deal, the course was a bit pricey, $37.00 , but if I am going to pay a course like this is worth the money. Walters consistently offers the best prices for the quality of course which is why I look for their courses first on Golf Now.

Beautiful through winter
I was very pleased to play this course for the first time, all I can say is Fantastic. challenging enough but still fun. Beautiful layout. Not your typical straight drive and wedge to the pin course like some in the area. I'm definitely coming back.

Definitely worth the trip to Fairview Heights. Well-maintained, heavily bunkered, a good golf test. I like the 2-3 short par 4s with numerous bunkers in fairway and around green, holes 3, 7, 11. No hole looks the same. The only thing I'm not a big fan of on this course is the greens--seem like a blend of different grasses, don't always roll consistently. Played on an $11 tee time from golfnow and were first ones out at 9am--took a little over 3 hours, so I really shouldn't complain much. Will return soon.

The course was in fair shape for this time of year.
Conditions of the golf course were above average from other courses in the area. However, the greens were very sandy and had way too many twigs and sticks on the greens which made it very hard to putt. Also, the normal price of $42 for this time of year is very unreasonable. No course in this area during the winter is worth that price in my opinion. $20 is a fair rate considering the condition of the golf course.

Play was slow.
The course was cart path only. This caused play to be extremely slow; there were only a few holes that should have been cart path only; for the most part the fairways could have easily supported cart traffic. Most golfers are smart and courteous enough to avoid the wet spots. I never saw a single maintenance person around to assess the playing conditions.

TOP NOTCH COURSE
VERY Challenging course with plenty of forced carries and hitting zones. You must place the ball into specific yardages or your thru the fairways, or in the water. 140 slope rating challenging to any serious golfer.

Definitely a Favorite
I always have a good time when I play the Wolf. They got a little cute with all the sand when they designed it, but it has an awesome layout and gives the golfer an opportunity to use all of their clubs. It's more than just a driver off the tee course. It also have some of the best ball prospecting spots of any course out there. Every time I go, I leave with A LOT more balls than I started with!

Well laid out course that is fun to play.
Course conditions are pretty good including the traps. Greens roll nicely. Staff is friendly and good place for a beverage after completing round.

Great condition...Great view...Great fun!
I went out for a day with my son just to get a round in to work on his game. We ended up having a outstanding experience. The course was challanging, but not irritating. The bunkers tested our range calculations. The view was perfect on a beautiful fall day. I can't wait to play here again.

Good course in general
Lately there is too many people which slows down the course to minimum 4:15 heures the last time we went before this time it took us close to 5 hours because we had to wait at every tee off.
