Great Course, Great Weather, Great day with my Wife

We were very impressed from start to finish. Friendly staff welcomed us to their course. The course was in phenomenal condition and the pace of play was perfect. Almost joined the club on the spot. I would highly recommend this course to golfers of all levels of play.

Average golfer at best but did find this course very challenging. Many “uphill” tee shots were the main reason.

Gem

First time back since the new clubhouse opened and this place continues to improve in every way.

An old course with character, I already loved it based on layout and course conditions, but today the course was next level. Immaculate tees, fairways and greens. Rough is penalizing as it should be.

Quickly becoming one of my all time favorites. Never had a membership anywhere, but seriously considering ES.

Hard to believe it is municipal.

Keep it up!

This course is absolutely fantastic. Best greens in KC. Friendliest staff you will ever come across. I can't say enough good about this old school course.

ES Golf course

Course was in great shape. Fairways are well manicured and greens were perfect and fast. Challenging hole placements with some on sloping greens making for tough puts long or short. Back nine is definitely more challenging with all the hills and dog-leg holes. I don't recommend walking the back 9 as it is VERY hilly. Front 9 would be fine to walk. I still would like to walk the full course with my push cart just to see what its like to walk the full thing.

A fun little course

Short without a lot of trouble - no sand, little water - not long, in good condition. A fun play on a beautiful spring day.

A warm winter day. Finally.

The course was in great winter shape. All the fairways were well maintained and drained well. Greens were hard and fast but expected for this time of year. Staff was very friendly. The only issue was a couple golfing in front of us that had no clue what golf etiquette is, took way too long goofing around on the greens and they also had their kids in a cart just riding along with them. A few times their kids screamed and were being obnoxious. Very disrespectful of people on the course. Two groups behind us were unhappy as well. I suggest no kids unless they are riding with their parent or of age to drive 15+.

New and improved

It has been a few years since I had played this course. I was really excited to see some money being spent on the club house. Granted there was some outside construction going on but the new facilities are going to be great. I look forward to coming back again and playing a round.

Beautiful Course!

I took my 12 year old son golfing here and we had a wonderful time! We had to battle some cold wet weather at first but it ended up being a wonderful round. The staff was great! I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to enjoy the sport of golf and include their children in it.

Love this course

It was a cold and windy fall day. However, I couldn’t have asked for a better course to play. The fairways were is great shape. The greens are well kept and challenging. I play here a few times a year and should play more often.
