Wow!! What a great course! Fairways and greens were awesome! I played on a Sunday and it was slow....a lot if foursomes! Will play again during the week next time!

One of the most beautiful courses I've played, and at the current prices, it is one of the best values out there. The holes are challenging but not punitive, there is a lot of elevation change, and each hole is different in its own way. It was in pristine condition in June 2011 and was a joy to play. I will definitely be back.

First time playing on this great course and am looking forward to playing multiple rounds a year. Like what others have said, this course is not for those who cannot control their shots. A lot of elevation changes, but a great way to spend a day on the golf course. Number 17 has one of the best views of downtown Kansas City's skyline, a definite signature hole.

Not for beginners, errant hitters will pay for their lack of control. Course layout takes away most the advantage of long hitting unless you have excellent control. A fine course in the middle of the city. If you like flat and open courses then stay away. Rain and lots of sun have really thickened the fairways and greens are good. The tall grass is also thick, so keep it in the fairways.

Very very tough for the average golfer. If you're just starting out or haven't played in a while, you might want to tackle the Blue River Course across the road or Minor Park first.
