I have a fantastic visit whenever I am at The Prairies Golf Club. The golfers here maintain the green by repairing their divots. This, sadly, is rare for the area. I enjoy the relatively easy course and the large assortment of wildlife in the small ponds and lakes around the course. I have noticed that many of the reviews for this place are from folks who were displeased. I have just started golf this summer and played every week or twice a week at various places around the metro-east and The Prairies Golf Club in Cahokia has been one of my favorite affordable courses. The course does not play incredibly difficult here but is relatively well maintained with greens in pretty good condition. I take a lot of my friends golfing with me and we all enjoy The Prairies.
I would say 3.5 stars would be more accurate. The staff was very friendly and the food was good at the snack bar. The course is in decent shape. Fairways are burmuda grass and are in good shape. The greens were not the best several had bare areas where you had to move your ball several feet if you wanted to putt on all grass. The course had several dog legs which are not easy to read if you never played here. We paid about $32 for 18 and cart, which is not bad. I would play here again if they get the greens fixed.
I think this is a great muni course. Great value for the conditions. Fairways adequate, just patchy here and there. Greens have rolled true for most of the dozen years Ive been playing here. Typically on the faster side but been a but slower the last couple of times. Friendly staff. Good burgers to fuel you for the back nine. Interesting and challenging layout. We always have a good time here.
New management has the grass to long. Dead grass clumps litter the entire course. They aerated the greens and didnt put sand down. Very amateurish especially for a "golf course" management company.
definitely not one of the nicer courses in the area, old guy working there follows you around and harasses you while you play
Course is more difficult but maintenance is below average.
Greens and tee boxes are poorly maintained
