Comments: Originally designed by Robert Trent Jones, Bellerive is a world-class club located in west St. Louis County. It is hosting the 2018 PGA Championship. My agency created the marketing and advertising for one of the recent PGA tournaments held at Bellerive and I have had the opportunity to play there many times. Plus, it is the closest course to my house. As of late 2016, the course is not in ideal condition but I am extremely confident that it will be in pristine condition by the end of 2017. It is typically a stunningly beautiful course and worthy of hosting top-caliber professional tournaments. If you ever get the chance to play Bellerive take it.

Comments: The American Legion Golf Course is in the heart of Hannibal and provides an inexpensive golfing option in this great city. Much of the work on the course is done by volunteers and they do an admirable job. The course is hilly and has a few hazards such as sand, a couple of lakes and many trees around the course. The greens are in excellent condition, but the rest of the course needs a little TLC. For more pictures please visit our Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/mogolftour

Comments: Timber Ridge was originally built in 1956 with sand greens. The course's ownership group converted the greens to bent grass in the 90's. The greens are currently so nice they look fake. Basically, the only flaws in them are the deer tracks from the previous night. The course is short but is extraordinarily well maintained with short and lush blue grass. Except on the parameter or in one of several ponds scattered throughout the course, it is very difficult to lose balls. Bob Newman, the courses superindendent, is passionate and meticulous about the course's condition. For more pictures please visit our Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/mogolftour
