After A Morning Rain

We played after some storms went through the area just before dawn. Course was in really good condition and drained well. We were able to tee off early and played at a good pace.

I don’t think it would be fair to comment. The.course was very wet and muddy. Water everywhere. The weather was great and the course is tough. The price we paid, $14.00, made it ok.

Beautiful and Challenging

This course is well designed and presents a fair challenge to various handicaps. The price is fair. The views are great. The local pro isn't very friendly. I hear he's a good player. Other employees are friendly.
They provide a discount for servicemen and veterans.
You have to plan half a day for the pace of play here. Usually quite slow - 4 to 5 hours!.

Course is in great condition, roughs needs to be cut. This is a challenging course, especially with wind.

Great Course

We’re visiting family from out of town. Played the course after an overnight rain so course was wet, but was still in very good shape. Great course layout, w back nine having several holes with great views of Longview Lake. Can’t wait for my next trip to KC so we can play Fred Arbanas course again.

Great outing at Longview Lake

Our 4some really enjoyed playing this course. We finished in 4 hours and yet scoring was typical for us with some birdies and a few quadruple bogeys. Fairways are nice and wide, green targets are large but undulating

The gold course was great. Lota of tight challenging holes
The wond was a big factor on some holes. The Par 5 was reachable (down wind) yet very challenging.
Generally its a thinking golfers course

Not customer focus

The course was in good shape and maintained very well. It was set to be a great day on the course and a great 4th. Started the day early and had a great time on the course but the 13th hole rolled around and there goes the horn. Stop play they said. We finished the hole out and headed back to the clubhouse. Expecting the rain to keep coming for a few hours and we weren’t going to waste our entire 4th on the golf course we headed to the pro shop to see what they could do. NOTHING. They wouldn’t do anything for us getting through 13 holes. We weren’t even looking for a full rain check but some kind of deal that would make missing he last 5 hours worth it to come back. Instead I asked if they would kindly give me a phone call when the course opened back up just so we weren’t wasting time there. No phone call. It was just poor customer service. I think the course is great but don’t expect to be back. I’d recommend putting your money towards another course that cares about the experience of golf and not just profits.
