Not bad, but could be better
Pros: For a 9 hole course, it has great distance, elevation change, and use of trees. Extremely clean (as you would expect on a college campus), and relatively easy to navigate once you find hole 1. Excellent signage
Cons: Tee pads are small and uneven gravel. Layout was not really thought out very well, especially on 8 and 9 - you throw down a hill and then walk back past the tee to 9's pad. Some trash cans, but no benches.
Other Thoughts: Could easily be a 12-18 hole course. Most holes have a 300' + walk between pads. Would love to have seen this course designed like that. I would have given it at least a 3.0 to 3.5 if that were the case.
Pros: +for a 9 hole course, there is decent distance and good elevation changes
+holes 2, 5 are very fun to play; downhill tunnel shots
+tee signs are very good, the visual indicators match exactly what is there
+mowed and maintained
Cons: -tee pads are terrible. mix of gravel or some other loose rock. They are worn in and in some cases not even flat. Straight dirt or rubber pad would be better
-only 9 holes, plenty of room for 18. all they have to do is take out the super long walks from pin to next tee
Other Thoughts: good practice course
Good little course
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Great use of the land that they have. Most, if not all, holes are around 350' but there are 2 placements per hole. Little bit of water comes into play. Good use of elevation changes and trees. It may be short, but it ain't easy! Plus there's plenty of room to park and multiple soccer and baseball fields to warm up or just practice shots on. Oh, and the signage is in the same style as a lot of other KC area courses, so it's very good. It's the best 9 hole that I've ever played and is close to home. I could only wish for 9 more! (oh, and a practice basket)
Cons: Gravel teepads were washed out and very rutted. This could be remedied fairly easily. No practice basket. The course plays around several fields which I have seen being used for baseball or soccer practice. It might be tough to play on a gameday, although I admit that I haven't tried. Flow is pretty weird until you've played it a few times. There are walks between holes that are longer than the holes themselves to begin with and then 7, 8 and 9 are all wonky. 1 bench at hole #1, but no others anywhere around unless you count the bleachers by the big baseball field, which may or may not be locked. No water fountains, either, so bring some water in with you.
Other Thoughts: A very good little course on a beautiful, well-kept college campus. I see security driving around every time I've been there, so that's good or bad depending on your point of view. 1 and 2 play up to the frat houses, so no wonder why they're always around. Any spots down by the creek or even the flat spots close to it on 3, 6, and 7-8 were swamps. Like flooded wet, but there had been an uncommon amount of rain recently. It's not always that way, so I can't say it's a con. With a little redesign and/or playing back around the field where 9 ends, there could easily be another 9 put in. Maybe that's in the long-term plan? I dunno, but I would work on filling in the teepads with concrete before all else. There's a fairly busy little road that the course winds around, so while security is cool with dogs being out there and off leash, definitely keep an eye out when you play by the road.

Pros: Beautiful piece of land. Nice tee areas. Really well placed greens! Two pin placements on every hole.
Cons: Not a lot of variety in hole lengths. Walk between some holes.
Other Thoughts: Liberty finally has a course! Liked holes 1, 2, 5, and especially 6. I think pin locations are the best thing about the course as there is trouble possible on every approach. For 350+ throwers it will be more fun but for my 270ft arm it is pretty much a bunch of threes. I would rate higher but for the walks. After 8 you turn around and walk all the way back past the pad to 9. I will play the course again for sure.

Lovely Golf course
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Excellent terrain usage, baskets with red flag easy to follow, tee signs and course map help with flow, tee pads where gravel but well leveled.
Cons: Gravel teepads, the criss cross of hole 7,8,9. one could easily redesign and improve course flow
Other Thoughts: I always think about courses that would convert a ball golfer and i think this course would do just that. Links style golf that is fun.

More challenging than it first looked
1 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Some good use of the terrain (including man made). Road, fences around sports fields, trees, brush, and hills are all used to good effect.
Wide variety of shots needed. I used most of the discs in bag. (10 discs)
Nice tee signs.
Lots of parking.
New and easily visible baskets. I loved that they all had flags on top.
Nice tee pads.
It was not hard to follow the course.
Nice map at the beginning.
Cons: Tee pads, though nice, were compacted sand and gravel mix.
No signs pointing to next tee.
No provision to have a copy of the map.
Other Thoughts: None of the negatives were all that big a deal. I did not rate the course higher because it just was not great, not because it was bad. I definitely plan to play it again some time soon when I am passing through.

Worth the walk
0 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: Grounds well kept, on college property so clean and will probably stay that way. Nice use of elevation and the few trees on the course. Distances are decent albeit, nothing over 500 ft. Surprisingly quick play for the overall distance walked.
Cons: Distance between pin and next tee as you seen in previous reviews. Not a ton of challenges here even bad drives were easy pars.
Other Thoughts: The town of Liberty finally gets a dg course. Being one of Kansas City's larger suburb it was strange. The course itself was typical and quite a delight. Probably my favorite hole was number 5 a nice downhill with a well protected basket to the right.

Great 9 Hole Course
Pros: New course with a lot of variety for 9 holes. Makes you play a lot of different shots. Well maintained grass and grounds. Not a lot of trees, but enough to make it interesting.
Cons: Gravel tee boxes are already eroding even though this course is only a few months old.
Other Thoughts: If you don't have a lot of time, this course is great because you can play it in an hour or less. Best 9 hole course in KC!
