This 9 hole layout is set to the side of the church parking lot and has some nice hill top views on either end, with a woodsy valley between them. Concrete tee boxes and fresh baskets are nice. Layout is not very long, but has a par 4 and a couple of 340'+ par 3 holes.
The elevation and trees are used well to shape shots along either side of the creek bottom.
Hole 1 is is a fun initial tee shot. A putter is all you need to reach the bottom of a good sized slope. Very much a birdie opportunity, unless you overshoot the pin and wind up in the trees. 2 is kind of a short line drive under tree canopy, short and reachable with a mid range or putter. 3 is mid distance and slightly uphill with a pin protected by a mature tree. 4 is another short hole that plays back downhill, with the pin at the end of a left to right turning fairway. 5 is pretty much level and open, but the fairway does slope downhill from left to right if you miss the line.
6 is the turn at the opposite side of the valley, and is very similar to the first hole. Downhill with a lot of air space, a bit longer than 1, and instead of trees, there is a creek behind the pin at the bottom of the hill that needs to be avoided. 7 is a right to left turner that you really have to bend. To get the proper distance the drive must remain close to the trees on the inside of the turn, then maybe hope for a nice skip to run toward the basket. Hole 8 is the par 4, and has the creek to the right side and a line of woods to the left. A couple of stray trees dot the fairway as well as you approach the pin. It takes a couple of good shots to get a birdie chance. The final hole tees at the top of the hill, and plays along the edge of the slope rolling down to the right. It is a longish drive that is open, with a bad roll being the worst scenario. Depending on the angle of the approach, taking a run can be dicey.
Newish tees are surrounded by dirt that was muddy and really stuck to my shoes when I visited.
This course is pretty fun and plays fast if it isn't super busy. Not super easy or championship caliber, but fun for intermediate and recreational players. Good layout on terrain that can be hilly and wooded.
I shot 1 under par, with 3 birdies and 2 bogies. I did miss a putt or three that would have helped me go lower. I will try to go back and get pics to upload once the temps go above freezing. Plays well with the nine hole at William Jewell if you're in the area.
