This is a beautiful course in great condition. However, I don't feel it was worth the price they are charging. The Pro-Shop staff was exceptionally courteous and friendly. This was my first time playing here, but won't return until the prices drop.

This course is nice layout and in excellent condition. The green speed is not fast but is very consistent and greens are in great shape. Some tall grass that needs mowed, most should be out of play but would help the coarse appearance that is otherwise great!

First time on this course through a good rate on GN. About 30min drive for me but well worth to change course and layout.

Well maintained course, a little bit of weeds on the outsides but nothing big. Layout was challenging, blues and blacks are the way to go. Carts are in great shape and the course gives you a book with the holes and different distances, can't beat that !!

I'm not picky about the golf shop so regular amenities are available, food was ok since I usually have a hotdog before the back 9. Overall very good.

Very poor course management. Booked a tee time one week in advance. They did not tell me they would be punching and sanding the greens the day before. Who does that in august. They called the the night before our tee time at 6pm to tell they had sanded the greens, to late to book another coursr. The next day when we got there they told us it was cart path only. Could have told us the night before on the phone when they called. Course layout was good. So we're the greens and tee boxes. There was no need for cart path only, the fairways were dry. All in all it was very bad experience because of poor course managsment. They need to change some t hinges before I will go back or recommend this course.

David, we appreciate that you played Falcon Lakes and took the time to review our course. We are pleased that you thought highly of the layout, greens and tee boxes. Although the greens remain quite playable during the aerification process, we add a notice of our aerification dates above the online tee sheet the week prior to aerification. As a courtesy to our golfers who book their tee times over the phone, our staff notifies them of aerification, and we also make every effort with those who booked online to follow up with them with a phone call to make sure they are aware of aerification. We apologize that you felt our phone call did not allow you enough time to book another course. As for the cart path restriction, we received a record-setting 6 inches of rain Monday evening. It's a fine line between protecting our great course conditions and allowing carts off the path, and we appreciate your understanding of our desire to keep Falcon Lakes ranked as one of the best public courses in the metro. If you would like to visit further with us about your experience, please contact PGA Head Pro Mike Langstraat at 913-724-4653.

This was a well maintained course with excellent accommodations. Only issue with the course was the bunkers were in bad shape from rain but we could see there staff actively doing all they could to get them back into playable condition. Course played ver challenging but did not unreasonably punish you if you missed a fairway. Will absolutely be returning to play this course in the future, I strongly recommend this to anyone.
