+16Jon Tveite 70 - Regular tees, 18 holes "I had played this course for the first time about six weeks previous. It's a great layout and I wanted to give it another try. This time, it was warmer, the mosquitos were thicker, and the underbrush had filled in quite a bit (including poison ivy). That's probably why there was nobody else out there. It's obvious this park doesn't get a lot of attention, as the baskets were all in the same place as they were before. #3 is just kind of ridiculous: you have to go through a gap with trees on all sides, and then at 250' out, the fairway turns sharply to the left, still through heavy trees, and climbs about 60'. I think I would need 3-4 perfect shots to have any kind of makeable putt. #5 is a great hole, all the way down to the parking lot level through a narrow chute with trees on both sides; I caught a limb off the tee but landed in the middle, then made up most of the distance remaining but missed about a 60-footer for par. #12 is another crazy one: you have to thread the needle to stay on the fairway, and then after about 275' it turns right and then dissipates into trees. The basket is another 250' through them, in a clearing. Like #3 and #5, this hole was in its longest placement. #13 was long, too, but I played that one well and had an easy four. I played #17 really well, starting with a nice drive and then crashing my Predator through foliage across the creek for a par. The rain hit on #18, but I finished all right with my big score--thanks mostly to an eight and a seven."

EKevin Zane 54 - Regular tees, 18 holes "Hopefully this is a decent score to shoot for out here. I think par was about 60?. Took home the #5 KC tag with it (and 13 holes for skins with a 7 player card!) but had a few fives... This course really punishes greedy, risky shots and my overhand failed me twice here. There aren't a ton of deuce opportunities out here so you need to make sure to hit ALL of them to shoot a good score. Next time no fives."

+14Jon Tveite 68 - Regular tees, 18 holes "I probably shouldn't have played at all, as I had turned my left ankle the day before. But I was driving home from the KC airport, I wanted to look at the course, it seemed to take forever to get there, and my ankle didn't feel too bad. So I played. The layout was even more impressive than I had been led to expect -- and it was in much nicer shape. I struggled to find my lines for a while, and this course doesn't offer much forgiveness. But I started hitting gaps pretty well by #5, which was a really cool downhill hole where I should have made 3 in the longest position (but I missed a 20-25' putt). That became a theme. I hit a lot of baskets with putts, but didn't make anything outside of about 15'. That's probably where my weak ankle did me the most harm. So my score should have been about 5-6 shots better. I noticed two things about the basket positions on that particular day: they were almost all either in the shortest or the longest of three options, and the short ones were predominantly on holes with the greatest drop in elevation. So I had probably 3 or 4 straight-down shots of less than 240', none of which I was able to get right (except maybe after 3-4 tries). Anyway, my score was not great, even though I didn't play too badly (except the putting). The vegetation (especially poison ivy/oak) was not as thick as I expected, because there has apparently been some recent maintenance. The ticks were definitely a presence (mosquitos less so), but probably not as bad as they will be later. It also got pretty warm at times, so I can see why people say it's a good off-season course. But I enjoyed it, despite my score."
