Lake sure makes it pretty
*The lake makes this course. I love the beauty of water, and it's in play on 4 holes, but visible on many other holes throughout the course.
*Every basket has a big flag with the hole number on the top! That's a really cool addition.
*For added variety 10 holes feature long basket positions.
*Elevation changes- there are lots of hills, with mostly all up or down shots, but the elevation changes are mild. 2 Flat/ 8 Up/ 8 Down
*Wildlife- there was a raccoon just sitting on the 15th fairway, sunning himself in mid-afternoon. He placidly watched me go by.
*Nice metal tee signs with maps.
*Map available online.
-As is true of most courses with multiple basket positions, it would help to implement a simple marking system to show which layout the baskets are in.
-Terrain variety is low (1 Grass/ 17 Mixed), so the holes can seem kind of similar after a while.
-Length variety is rather low. The mixed layout that day had 9 of 225-299/ 7 of 300-399/ 2>400. Suitable for people who throw 300-350 ft.
-Other than the online map there are few amenities. No score card, no warm basket, no message board. There were a few benches and trash cans, though.
Course Level = White (most suited for Intermediate players rated 875-925)
Course Difficulty: 4 (out of 10)
The course is mostly nice grass with scattered trees and foliage; it's more wide open than I generally prefer
My favorite hole: 14. Nice fairway with a long, fun, downhill hole. Very scenic with the lake down the hill on the left.
This was a nice, average course. It's not a destination course, and it's kind of far from Kansas City, but there were certainly some pleasant hills near a lake shore.

Worth a day trip...
Pros: Great setting
Good use of available space
A couple of challenges with trees/obstacles/water
Multiple pin placements on some holes
Easy to navigate
Good park grounds to make a day of it with a BBQ, etc
Cons: Some of the holes were not very challenging and a little redundant...but this is more a result of availble space and having to design around public usage areas, so it's not that big of a negative...the designers did a good job
A couple fairways overlap, so you have to be attentive if it was busy/crowded...there were a few beginner groups playing the day I played, but it wasn't too bad
Other Thoughts: This is a little bit of a drive from the KC metro area, but I think well worth the trip, especially if you bring some food and make a day of it...great park...

Pros: Beautiful environment. Decent if uninspired holes. Water comes into play on a couple of holes.
Cons: Not the most challenging course, and the picnic crowd could become difficult on busy summer weekends.
Oh, and bring the bug spray.
Other Thoughts: I played this course at sunset as the last course of a two-day KC trip. It was a fun course to end with, great vibe, and the education exotic animal farm on the property was pretty cool too.
