Reviewed 31 October 2013

I have lived at the lake for 33 yrs. and this is one of my favorite couses to play. This couse is always in good shape. It offers a challenge to every level of player. This is a tight course with several elevation changes and several water hazzards. It doesn't play as long as some courses but demands accuracy and patience as there are several risk/reward holes. Very aesthetic especially in the spring and fall. The owners and staff are very friendly and always ready to assist you.

“Fun!”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

I would recommend to anyone. Good location, good parking and fun to play. Prices are in line with other activities. Everything seems to be maintained well and always a fun time for family fun! I have played this course for years...yes I am old.

“Tough Course Unless Fairly Skilled”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Bring your "A" game. This course is tight, slopped, wet and blind. We won a certificate on FB so the price was right and thank you. Weather was perfect with light winds and 75 degrees. Limited beverage selection but service was spot on. Bring a few extra balls and test your game! Novice players should move to Forward tee box : )

“Sycamore Creek Golf Club....one of the best at the lake”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

My wife and I had the chance to recently play what we affectionately call the "creek". From the moment we arrived we were greeted my a number of, more than friendly, employees. Inside the pro shop was a courteous staff that saw to our every need. The golf? A variety of different holes will challenge all skill levels and at the same time leave you appreciating the aesthetics of each and every hole and it's beautiful surroundings. In the past we've taken extra time for both breakfast and lunch there as the staff is more than happy to accommodate you. An excellent selection of some great looking golf apparel was available as well. If your looking for a number of courses to play while your here, put this course on the list.

“Like thinking man's golf? look no further than here!”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

Golf is a thinking man's (and woman's) game, and there is no better or more enjoyable test of this than Sycamore creek. I have had the opportunity to play most courses in the Osage Beach area, and while there are some that are longer, there are none more challenging regarding proper club selection and number of opportunities for "risk/reward" shots. With water being in play on more holes than not, some of the par 4's at this course demand iron selection of the tee for proper fairway approaches, but still allows the long hitters to gamble on some of these, so it is great for offering different challenges to different levels of golfers. While some shots are blind, and may seem a bit daunting for the first-time visitor, the on-course signage (and yardage markers on tees in some cases) along with the scorecard mapping present a good guide to these. Add to this the medium fast greens, more than enough (for me anyway ;>) bunkers, and this all makes for a great day of golf. Not to mention the natural beauty of the area and the absolutely best maintained fairways and greens around.

The staff here is next to none, in both friendliness and genuinely being interested in making sure you enjoy your golf while visiting. I have played on weekdays when traffic was light, and on weekends when the course was fairly crowded, and the pace of play has always flowed well, not much more than 4 hours on a very heavy day. The on-course player assistants do a wonderful job in keeping this happening and helping anyone who may need it.

Green fees vary greatly at different courses in the area, as well as in different seasons, but Sycamore Creek is the best value. I've played courses that are twice the price in season, and not in near the good shape of this one.

There are lots of wonderful places to play golf around the lake, but if someone only gets a day to play one round, I'll always recommend they play here...
