Pace is terrible

Highschoolers take over course in the afternoon, work about 6hrs if you get behind them. They don't let anyone play through.

Unhelpful staff

The price for the golf was great! $19.50 for a 12:51 tee time. It was a holiday week and I had visitors in from out of town. We booked three for our tee time and had a guest to ride along. A fourth was also booked apparently. (Someone we didn't know). At check in they charged us $14.00 for our guest to ride along. They said it's in the fine print. As long as I've been playing I 've never been at a course that has made singles share a cart with someone they don't know. Not sure why Sunflower works with Golf Now, they clearly don't respect the business it brings them.

good challenge of golf

Due to the dry weather conditions the course has held help pretty well, greens are not fast but ok. Fairways are dry and brown because of the sosa grass, some so dry and powdery like nothing holds the ball and will roll all the way back down the hill in.

I took tuesday off to play it was slower than I I like like the rd took too long for the day of week.

This is a very nice course.

Since the restrooms are closed for the winter they need to put some portable restrooms on the course.

First time here. Appreciated the various teeing areas. Course in grand shape considering the time of year. Greens fast and tough but fun.

Our first experience at Sunflower was a good one. Extremely challenging course but fair. Intend to play again next week.

Challenging with several risk/reward shots.

I thought it was a challenging course that requires your best course management skills. Several elevated greens that you must club-up on your approach. There are a couple of holes that you must hit over water and there is a nice long par 3. Overall good experience and a good value.

All though the course has been around forever along with its staff it remains a great track.

I don't know how they do it but the course, conditions, and staff remain loyal to a great golf experience at a good value. The pace of play can be a problem as the good value attracts lots of golfers. I say drop another ball, play two shots, take your time and enjoy Sunflower Hills.

Pretty views, fun holes, soft greens

Sunflower Hills is one of the best public courses I have played. There are lots of trees flanking the course which were just turning fall colors. The greens were soft so the balls would stick nicely. The only criticism would be most of the holes are straight which reduces the challenge.

Excellent public course

This course is very well run. The course was in good shape dispite the terrible drought this summer. It is a real credit to them that the greens were in great shape. The staff is excellent. One of the best public courses in KC. A great bargain.

Great Value, Top 5 KC Municipal

Course is in great shape. Greens are well maintained. Only complaint is consistency with the rough, but what Muny course doesn't have this problem. Overall a great course to play. Some of the staff are a little stuck up but can't let that ruin a good course!
