"I have played the course twice. It's a forgiving course with excellent wide fairways, the best overall value in the area."
Tucked away in the quaint, scenic village of Dardenne Prairie, in O'Fallon, Missouri, is our lovely 18-hole, championship golf course, The Links at Dardenne. In true linksfashion, the course was designed with the flavor of the courses of yesteryear with all the modern conveniences of today's game. In an area rich with Missouri heritage, the Links offers players expansive Zoysiagrass fairways and tees, along with beautifully manicured bentgrass greens. Playing a 'player friendly' 6568 yards from the back tees, and offering three additional sets of tees at 6144, 5746, and 4875 yards, our course is truly one that can be enjoyed by golfers of all abilities.
Your round at The Links at Dardenne will be played in environmentally sensitive areas where special attention has been paid to preserving the natural habitat of water fowl, deer, fox and other animals and plants indigenous to the area. While the old adage "There is not a bad hole out there!" is certainly true, several key holes will define your round. The 395-yard sixth hole is a great par 4 that requires two good shots. Your challenge starts with a semi-blind tee shot, with more room to the right and left than may appear off the tee. If you make it to the bottom of the hill you are only left with a short iron into a shallow green. However, most will be playing a 140-200 yard second from a downhill stance. Four is a good score on the sixth, especially with a right pin placement. The 556-yard eighth hole is majestic par 5 that is considered our signature hole. The entire hole wraps around a marshy low land area, with long grass guarding the left side. Two good shots will leave a 125-100 yard shot to an elevated green, guarded in front by a deep bunker on the right hand side.
"What a fun layout, the course is a true links design, yet still friendly to golfers of all ability. The fairways and greens are country club material...a must play course for anyone in Missouri and surrounding areas. For the price, I haven't found better."

The 560-yard par 5 10th hole sets the tone for the backside. With Dardenne Creek running down the entire left side, and intersecting it roughly 300 yards off the tee, shotplacement is crucial here. A good two shots will allow a short iron to another elevated putting surface. Beware of a front pin, as shots not hit deep enough into the green will come back 20-30 feet off the false front of the green. At 168 yards, the 11th is our shortest, but perhaps most interesting par 3 on the course. With a deep creek in front of the entire green and a shallow putting surface, one must choose the correct club. Hit it long and your in a back bunker, short and your wet, it's a very fun test of your game.
The 506 yard, par 5 18th hole is a classic risk reward an offers plenty of birdie opportunities on which to end your round on a high! Our home hole brings you back with a beautiful view of the clubhouse, as well as trouble down both sides of the fairway. Long grass and out-of-bounds await errant shots on this hole. Once approaching the green be very accurate, as dual water hazards guard the left and right. A great finishing hole to a truly great golfing experience!
