Great Scramble Course
Played here in a scramble which made the course more interesting. I probably would have been frustrated had I played my own ball on a normal day. The course was in pretty good shape. The cold and the wind added to the overall difficulty of the course. Greens were tough. Always staff below the hole on this course.
The course is in great shape. The greens were smooth and fast. No dead spots in the fairway or on the tee boxes. Love the layout, which is pretty challenging. The only thing everyone hates is the green on number 7. Our foursome played in exactly 4 hours. They did a good job of clearing out some brush on a couple of holes that made it hard to see the fairway on the other side of a gully, but that brush is growing back. Needs to be cleared again.
Pretty Rough Shape and Slow Play
I played the course for a second time, with the first time having been around 6 years ago. I was very disappointed in the course conditions as other than the greens it was in generally poor shape, with many large patches of the fairways being dead, looking like possibly fungus killed the grass. Note, the grass kill was not because of a lack of water. Beyond that, the traps appeared to have not been groomed at least since March with a number of bunker areas that were just basically mud, no sand in those spots. Beyond the rough course conditions the our foursome dealt with slow play. In front of us were two twosomes, with the twosome in front of the one directly in front of us being very slow. I am not sure why the course did not pair the two twosomes up since it was a Saturday.
Stone canyon GC 2016
The course condition this year is phenomenal (2016) Probably the best course in the KC metro area. Pace of play is normally excellent unless a 5 some is allowed which can slow play substantially. Club employees are very nice . The lack of a dedicated club house takes away from the overall course experience if your considering joining
I was a bit nervous when I headed to Stone Canyon based on the previous poor reviews that I read. And although the course is not pristine, it was much better than what I was expecting. The Greg Norman design layout is great - generous fairways with a good mix of straightforward holes with holes that require some ingenuity and shotmaking. I played with a couple of guys who have been members out here for a few years, and based on what they said, this course has seen very good as well as very hard times. Apparently there is new ownership that has recently taken over and is giving this course the love that it deserves. This track has some serious potential with some TLC.
Not Going Back
I have played this course at least a half dozen times and every time have had an issue. Only once have we gotten off the tee on time with up to 45 minute delays. Yesterda,y as we made the turn the owner decided to jump on in front of us with a fivesome! It added at least 1/2 hour to our round and put a damper on a good round. The course is very nice but the course is mismanaged beginning with the owner. Will not be going back.
Enjoyable golf. Scenic fairways lined with trees, slightly hilly, and with terrific greens that are challenging. This is especially true on the first nine. The back nine has a few holes surrounded by new homes coming up close to the fairways. The course was in good shape. Good value. Located on the eastern edge of Kansas City metro near I-70. The golf course is far more attractive than the trailers they use as their building.
Extremely windy day, but wind or not, the course was fair at best. Fairways were spotty with grass and dirt. The bunkers however were raked and decent and the greens were not bad. With public courses there's always the assh...s who don't repair their divots on the green and in the fariways. We will not play again. Too many other good courses in the KC area.
The course was in excellent condition. Myself and the person I played with thought the layout was very challenging with the par 5 holes just the right length. The greens were fast which made the putting a bit tougher, but we enjoyed the challenge. Would recommend this course if you want to test your skills.
unique golf experience
Very friendly staff, cool course. Hopefully I will get to come back.
Played as a single for a quick round. Not very crowded so was a good opportunity to practice extra shots. Course was a little over watered right when I played. Fairly challenging, a couple holes very hard for an average golfer to make par.
Friendly People and Great Fairways
This course is in great condition. Greens are very challenging.
pace of play
Course management lax on pace of play. Front nine played slow and at the turn 4 groups on number 10. Delayed by lax management control.
Very Nice Experience
Beautiful, well laid out course with some of the most scenic and challenging tee boxes in a reasonably-priced, public course. The guy responsible for the greens is probably a mad scientist who has painstakingly created contours, breaks, and elevations that challenged me on every hole. This course kicked my butt in round 1, but I can't wait to get back for round 2.
The course itself is pretty nice. But you can tell there's other obvious non-golf things to be worked on like the clubhouse and cart paths etc etc. Still, play wise, very nice
what a shame
Have not played here for 2 yrs, so I was very excited to play. As I remember it is one of the prettiest and well manicured courses around. Not anymore, greens were in pretty good shape, but the tee boxes looked like land mines had exploded. The fairways had weeds 8 inches tall everywhere, and I have never seen a driving range in this bad of shape. At best this is a $30 course.
I was hoping to play. A nice course, but was very disappointed with the the condition, greens were torn up, fairways a mess, driving range. Closed half the day. Cant believe this is a greg norman course. Will not be back
Nice Course, but Quirky
Very unique layout, narrow fairway and lots of sand. Lots of unused space though. For a somewhat expensive course, there are no maps of the course on the scorecard or on the tee boxes, and no ball washers! Par 3's are extremely short. Yardage on the scorecards often doesn't match actual yardage. Greens were in rough shape and extremely fast. With the housing being built around the course, this will likely become more costly to play in the future and will need some upgrades and probably new clubhouse facilities.
Challenging course, bring an extra sleeve.
If you are used to playing local munis bring an extra sleeve or two. Anything outside of the first cut is likely gone. Some nice hole layouts and sloping greens make this a challenge.
Rough course conditions
Usually this is a good course that is good value for the money, but it appears to have had some heavy play recently. The tees and greens were generally in rough condition.
