No water or working restroom facilities, greens pretty much dead. Staff was friendly and knew they needed to do a lot of work over the off season.
Jungle Golf at its finest
If you don't play a lot, or just don't care to spend a ton of money... This is probably a good starting point. The good: they have a range!
The bad.... Just about everything else. Greens were in poor condition, the fairways... Were hard to find and played like they would in your neighbor's yard (the one who doesn't mow that is), and you'll probably lose a ball or three even if you hit it right down the middle.
But I digress, you get what you pay for. Plain and simple.
If you're not used to hitting fairways it's Ok.
The course had almost no fairways. They were like most course's ruff. Greens were bumpy and many big dead patches. The layout was fine just needs alot of attention and weed killer. Hard to find balls in fairway clover patches. I may play it again because it is so close to me, but if I have the time I will play another course.
Worst Experience ( Needs new management)
I have went to this coarse a handful of times in the past two years (because it is the closest coarse to me) and have never been impressed with the conditions but most of all very unimpressed with the staff at Gardner Golf Coarse. The Staff there haggles with people on the price. This week I was trying to get 9 in at 6pm. The manager harassed me about how he needs to close and then tried to get me to pay extra 5$. You are better off going to Prairie Highlands where they are friendly and take care of the course and their customers.
I think that replacing the management would only be the start of trying to salvage this course, but I certainly wouldn't argue that it wouldn't hurt!
Course has seen better days
Cheap, yet still a bit overpriced. Played this Course several times before, but never seen it in this bad of shape. Bunkers, greens, rough, fairways- all in terrible condition. Can't recommend this course unless you are looking for a place to hack away.
Even at $20, this place is way overpriced!!!! And it costs more at the course??? Not worth it at all. Too bad, it used to be OK.
Poor course conditions
I've played this course in the past, and even though it has never had great fairway conditions, last week was by far the worst I have ever seen. So may dandelions and weeks that it was almost impossible to find your ball even in the fairway. Get what you pay for here.
The price was right.
Not much care is put into this golf course. The fairways are mostly weeds and most greens have bare spots.
Poor conditions on the course
The course was truly as previously described by others during their reviews. I should have believed what I read. The clover and dandelions were choking and completely all over the place both in and out of the fairways. The grass was being mowed but the cutting had no effect on the fairways; the grass remained too high with the weeds. I decided not to go back even for the enticing price for the round.
Are there fairways?
I regularly use Golf Now to book courses in the Kansas City area. I have never played this location but due to time constraints for the day I was only looking to play 9 holes. This was one of the few in my area that offered a 9-hole rate. Upon arrival I could tell that I was going to be in for a "sub-par" experience. There were no distinguishable fairways or tee boxes on the course. The entire course was just rough. This paired with close tee boxes made determining the directions of holes very challenging. The carts and paths were laughable many carts had broken plastic and flat tires. At times we needed to pull the gas pedal back with our hands to keep it from continuing to drive while we were hitting our shots. I will not be returning for the price. For $10 more I could play 18 at prairie highlands (4 miles away) and quit after 9 holes.
Four of us drove down from Minnesota last week of march to play early golf, found this for $12 for 18 holes and a cart couldn't believe it could be so cheap but you get what you pay for I guess .
The staff was very friendly but the course is extremely confusing to follow. This might be because it's early in the season, but their was no signage of yardage or hole description.
worst course in kansas city
maybe the entire state of Kansas/Missouri combined? possible. the guy checking out carts was drunk, the layout of the course is a joke, the greens are pitiful, I wouldn't take money to play this place again.
The attendant wasn't friendly. He tried to charge me 5 more dollars if I went as a single, even though the course was empty. I didn't appreciate his attitude.
You’re better off at literally any other course…
Save yourself the frustration and go to literally any other course in the area.
Understand why the rate was cheap...
If you're incredibly bored, need a last minute tee time, and want to try to find your ball in the 5 inch high, non-existent fairways, and seas of dandelions -- then this place is for you. Had no clue this place was here so I thought we'd check it out - especially at a cheap tee time. The place needs major upkeep and a makeover. Greens were so riddled with divots the ball wouldn't even roll smoothly and jumped around. Friendly staff but a horrible course. Don't waste your time.
You get what you pay for
I lost more money on balls i could not find in the fairway, well there really are no fairways, then I spent on the green fees. Spend the extra money on a different course. Dandelion Golf Course should be the name of the course.
Biggest plus to the course is the cheap tee times
I only play this course when everything else is booked on golfnow and I am stuck choosing Gardner as opposed to paying full price at another golf course. This course serves its purpose as a cheap alternative to other courses in the area but don't expect much.
