Postby robizm » Fri Aug 10, 2012 12:06 pm

I am up this weekend to Kansas City for a funeral so I only have limited time but which course would you recommend if i can only get 18 in?


I have played the KC Wide Open years ago so I remember Water Works and Swope?


suggestions?

Depends what part of town you’re in, but if you want to play a fun course I'd hit up Wilbur Young in Blue Springs, MO. Well manicured and nicely landscaped, challenging, and again a lot of fun.

I always like to play somewhere new when I’m in an area, so that crosses off Swope and WW. Many will say Blue Valley, but while its awesome it’s more of a chore to play than fun, plus if you’re limited on time this is not the course to hit up

If you are close to Olathe I would recommend playing Prairie View Park. It plays quick and has a lot of fun shots.

I've only played Wilbur Young once...it was so-so. I would do WW or Swope. Olathe is ok too. Like Single L stated, it really depends on which area of KC you are in. WY is way out east.

My least favorite course in the area. If you're on that side of town I'd hit up Shawnee Mission or Wyandotte County Park (Wyco).

I thought WyCo was a bit monotonous, mostly flat with a lot of wide open boring holes. :?

I'd recommend Wilbur Young, Water Works, and Blue Valley. Rosedale up top was OK, nothing special, not worth going out of your way for. I have not played the other KC courses.

Blue Valley is super long, gotta be ready for a workout, but the elevation made it fun even though I don't have a huge arm. Only problem I had with it was worrying about my car the whole round, seems some "entrepreneurs" do business in the area, and they didn't act real friendly.

Water Works is my favorite down there. Though I have only played it once at worlds 2009, Cliff Drive was pretty cool except hole #1. Don't go there alone was what I was told by Jack and a few other locals I have met as it is kinda in the hood.

ended up playing Water Works then Wilbur Young and finished with Priarie Center Park (some nice wooded holes including a 600 footer in the back brush and an across the water shot).


Ran into some local older guys playing on Sunday @ WW very nice guys one of them said to say hi from Willie Nelson if that means anything to any of you :o
