Pros: Nice color coded baskets (all blue for blue course). Mixture of holes, lengths, water, elevation. Overall, it's a nice park with lake view, shelters, restrooms with running water. Since first review from 2011, added nice, long tee pads, signs, garbage cans.
Cons: ALL FIXED:(I found a lot of things wrong with this course. No signage anywhere, not even at front gate. Some holes are marked with a PVC pipe, but it is not obvious to which basket you are to throw to. At least two holes the pipe was missing and had to ask other players where to tee from. Hole 15 just doesn't make sense at all. Ended up teeing from a gravel road in order to play the hole.)
Other Thoughts: Great to see this course finished out. Of the 3 on this complex, this is now my favorite one. Original review in 2011 was a 3, increased it to a 3.5. Continuing maturing may bring it to a 4 soon.

Pros: Excellent combination of techincal and open holes. View of Smithville lake (especially hole 16) is postcard perfect. The open holes are long enough (with sporadic large trees) to challenge even a "long arm" while not being over bearing for shorter arms like mine. The technical holes require precision and a little luck with some distance.
Other Thoughts: This course and Beaver Creek (right next to it) are two of my favorite courses in Kansas City area. The wind is a natural challenge added in.
