Shirkeys

A bit of a drive from KC, but worth it. Course is a good test. Greens are good. Have to keep the ball in the fairway. Staff are very friendly and welcoming.

First Time Playing

First time player...but I’ll be back!!

Great little layout and very fair course. Rewards you for good shots and punishes bad ones which is exactly what I like. Lots of different shots out there. Course was in good shape considering we had 8 inches of rain 3 days ago. I wish the other golfers would keep their carts on the paths when they know it’s soft so they hurt a couple of the low areas around the course. The clubhouse and restaurant are nice and the staff was very friendly. I will be back for sure! You won’t be disappointed here especially if you catch an online deal. Great value!

I don’t really want people to read this but...

I’ve played this course several times in the last month and have enjoyed every round. Long enough and challenging enough for even the best of golfers yet friendly staff with surprisingly great greens keepers! Only one green has some issues but the rest play fast and make the round exciting! Oh, and I only titled this that way because I don’t want the whole city to find this “diamond in the rough”! Worth the drive from the big city for cost effective and fun play!

Shirkey 3/7/20

I hadn't played Shirkey in years and went with my son. It's early in the season so course conditions were what you would expect 1st week of March in Missouri. I like the layout. The holes aren't particularly difficult and you shouldn't lose too many balls. I really can't wait to go back after the course greens up. The clubhouse has a lot of potential and the grill was outstanding. The food was excellent and the value was rgeat. We has the turkey bacon melt with fries for lunch and then has the cajun chicken street tacos after our round. Both were killer!

My hot deal was taken over by a tournament.

Shirkey is a great place to play. However 8/15/20 i bought 2 18 hole hot deals for 10:30am. We were on number 11 when the course was flooded with carts playing in a FULL shotgun start. The eintire course was taken over immediately as we still had 8 holes remaining of our 18 hole hot deal. Very bad communication between course and GoLfNOW. This should not happen. Very upset.

Work in Progress

I had played this little track about 10 years ago. Did not notice many changes from that time. Conditions were similar to then. Greens roll great but are, what some would call, postage stamps. Very small and tough targets to hit. Fairways offer many challenges with all the rolling hills and difficult lies. Tee boxes are in need of much work. Lots of weeds of various types. Course appears to be progressing though. Lots of work going on near the lakes. Overall, nice little country course to spend an afternoon enjoying the outdoors.

Hole in one

Very pleased with this course. Went and played a round with my nephews. Hit a hole in one on #2. The overall course conditions were great. Cart paths in nice shape. Greens overall condition was good. Nice challenging layout. Had a great time playing this course and will definitely be back and recommend it to others. The reason I rated it a 4 was I’m still waiting for them to get back to me on my hole in one as they said they would. I understand it may not be important to them but they should know it is important to a customer and player. Had a great time though!

Hidden gem

Awesome course. Great getaway from the city. And hot deal for $17 can't beat that! Course was pretty forgiving. Still easy to find balls if you didnt hit the fairway. Which were in great condition and the greens were smooth and fast. But very clean. Even after a tournament that morning course wasnt beat up. Had a practice range that was decent. I think the only complaint i could make was the carts. Time to update them. And wings at a golf course? The food at the 19th hole was unexpectedly tasty. Not just hotdogs!!!! Thanks shirky for a great day of golf. I WILL RETURN VERY SOON
