Excellent Value For The Money!

I’ve played more expensive courses that were nearly as good as this one. Hard to beat for $70. I’m not saying this is the “best” course at Lake of the Ozarks but in my opinion it’s the best course for the money.

Beautiful old school course with a great layout. Challenging but fair and a lot of fun. It’s my favorite course in the area.

Blind shots,water,sand and hazards

There was no way to judge shot distance necessary for a drive location or layup without GPS technology. A hand held was helpful but not useful if you can’t see where the landing area should be. Also pin position was improbable without knowing green size and slopes. Played 9 holes and quit which is a first for me. The first time I played this course several years ago there was a 4 sum in front of us so you could use a hand held gps to pick spots to aim. GPS would make it a course to reconsider.

Good Time, Not So Good Weather

Wet conditions made for a soggy experience. It's a good course, but lots of downhill side hill lies made even more difficult because of rain. Only made it 13 holes but was a good experience overall.
