Time to play

It took our foursome over 6 hours to play 18 holes, they had 6 players on 3 carts per hole in a fiendly tournament just before us, they had players driving up to the greens, it was not nice to see. People complain on course conditions, it starts by tge players ! No starter, no marshal, no staff on the course!
But we will be back and play it again !

Course condition

Really enjoyed our round. Fairways a little weak on grass. Greens were great. Fun course and a little challenging. Starter was very pleasant and did great job.

Nice little course

I have played this course a lot over the years. For the price, you get a pretty good value. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are some issues when playing this course, and, hopefully, pointing them out here will help fixing them. The biggest complaint from me are the green-side bunkers. Most of them are overgrown with grass. Recently, however, they started fixing a few of them, but they got a long way to go to make them right. Another big let down, is the lack of maintenance on the tee boxes and ball cleaning stations. Why have ball cleaning stations if they are dry or broken? My last problem with this course is the lack of enough distance markers. This is a huge problem, especially, on the last 9 holes where there are hardly any of them. So grip it and rip it and come prepared.

Could be a good course

Fairways in poor shape, Greens on the slow side and not in the best of shape, lots of hard pan shots. This is really too bad the course culd be fun if it were properly maintained. Staff friendly and courteous.

Poor Fairways and poor management

Poorly kept fairways, sometimes you play from a hard dirt ground, pace of play is extremely slow and no marshal. Tee time was not respected due to a last minute tournament, never heard that before. Had to play 19-27 twice to play 18 holes. No sorry, no discount or a sign of care.

Fun Muni

Like the previous reviewer stated, Mission invested a lot of money in improving Shary Golf Course, and the course if finally starting to show it. It helps that the new head pro is committed to keeping it in nice shape.

I always enjoy coming out here and playing. It's a short course - which makes attatcking easy -, but still provides plenty of challenge. The greens aren't always in the greatest condition, but they've rolled nice and consistently in recent months.

Could be very nice, but...

This is a nice layout, but doesn't live up to its potential because of the usual condition of the course. About three years ago, the City of Mission put millions of dollars of grant money into this course for a lot of work including a new, state-of-the-art sprinkler system. Everyone figured that by now this would have made the course a showplace with lush greens and fairways. Wrong. But, at least, the restrooms and club house are nicer. The city needs to hire someone who really knows something about golf course management and grounds keeping. This could be a wonderful place to play but consistently falls short despite a substantial recent investment.
