Golf course offers a good challenge. Demanding shot control and good course management. The Front and Back nines have been swapped, so #10 is now #1. The prices range from $28-$36 for 18 holes with cart dependent on your status (Military or Civilian). 2019 Conditions look to be very good, don't miss out on playing this course if you happen to be in the area as you can almost always walk on with no wait time to tee off. Course is open to the Public. Tee times available if you call 660-687-5572.

I played this course right after the new 9 was added. Previous remarks are wrong. The new nine was mixed with the old 9 so some holes are open and some are tight. Fairways, tees and greens were in awesome shape. Being able to hit a straight shot is required. For the price the course is beautiful and I should know I have played over 500 different course all over the world. If you are traveling and have your sticks drop by and test yourself on a course that rivals the Air Force Adacamy and Patrick AFB.

As others have noted, the front nine is open and relatively forgiving while the back nine is narrowly carved out of a hilly forest. The back nine in particular is a pleasure ascetically, and if you hit 'em straight or don't mind losing balls in the woods, you'll really enjoy this course.

The only drawback is if you aren't in the military, you will have to pay a premium to play here.

Very nice facility, especially for an Air Force base course. The other comments are correct that this is a very tough course. The back nine is incredibly narrow whereas the front nine is more forgiving. All in all a very great course with a friendly staff and excellent maintenance.

This is a nice golf course and the crew that operates the course is very friendly. All in all a fun place to play.

Very demanding and unforgiving if not in the fairway!
