Best Public Golf Course - 2010
Aberdeen Golf Club
Built to resemble the links courses of Scotland (i.e., few trees and sweeping fairways), Aberdeen Golf Club is a big golf course that tests even the most skilled players. Aesthetically, Aberdeen is also tough to beat, with thick zoysia fairways and bent-grass greens nestled between the bluffs of the Meramec River. And while Aberdeen is a long course that rewards a monster driver, it's the short game that can kill you here. Learning where not to hit the greens is the challenge — and the thrill — of playing Aberdeen.
