Falcon Lakes was in great shape this past weekend considering the lack of rain this past month. Very friendly staff at the bar and in the clubhouse. Pace of play was great for a Saturday and we spotted 2 different cart girls during our round and a couple of Marshall’s making sure everyone was doing ok.

The course was in great shape and the greens were fast and smooth. I took my 16 year old daughter to play and with the open layout we both had a great time. The biggest surprise was getting around in 4:15 with a packed parking lot on an 84 degree day in June! Hats off to the staff for keeping everything in good shape!

Great course if you can catch a deal on your tee time. Course has always been maintained to top standard every time that I have been there. Challenging yet not overbearing for the weekend golfer, IMHO. Give it a shot, you will find yourself wanting to come back.

Awesome course, always in good shape. Play at any time of the year, can be kind of on the steep side if you pay the prime rate but worth it definitely worth it if you find a deal. I have played over a dozen courses in the area this year so far and this has been in better shape than all of them. Fun course to play every time.

Pace of play was slow. My group, 2 men and 2 women, we harassed by the marshal on 16th hole to play faster. We were told the course was open but we had to wait on the remaining holes. Our total round was a little over 5 hours, not to mention a 20min plus wait on hole 10 to tee off. Bad experience on a nice course.

Played there on a hot deal, so for $31 pretty good value. Pro shop staff was very friendly. Pace of play was really good, but it was a Thursday afternoon, and one of the first hot days this summer. I felt like all the grass including the fairways, rough , and greens could have been a little shorter. Very open layout, hard to get into much trouble. Will play there again, for the right price.

I've never had a bad experience at Falcon Lakes. I play here 5 to 6 times a year. I would consider it one of the very best values in the KC area in terms of price vs quality. It can play pretty tough when the wind is up. Especially from the tips. But not overly long if you play from the white tees. It is a pretty open course. Fairways are fairly wide and the greens are good sized. But there is plenty of native grass to keep you honest if shots off of the tee go wayward. The best compliment I can give this course is their superintendent. He is passionate about golf and keeping the grounds at Falcon in great shape. So, one thing I can gaurantee...the greens will be fast and in great shape. And the rough will only get longer...hit em long and straight everyone!
