Good course for the price. Greens were hard and fast but with no rain, expected.
Clubhouse is excellent with great burgers and staff was very nice and helpful.
Announced your group so you had plenty of time to putt and head to the tee box.

SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW Play Today!

Course was in great shape! Played on Sunday of Labor Day so expected it to be busy! Did not expect to play behind a 6-some at 1:50 pm! Called the club house twice and both times they said they would send someone out! Never happened! The course was in such good shape to be played at such a slow pace! Very disappointed!

Hello and thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. Thank you for playing Excelsior Springs Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Great and challenging course

I am a member here but only became one after playing all around the north side of Kansas City. The course is tough and requires you to hit good tee shots. Elevation changes make for another fun challenge. The roughs make you wish you didn't miss the fairway but are not so bad you get discouraged. I love this course. There are times the pace of play is a little slower than expected but usually finish a round in about 4 hours. The staff is great! I have always felt welcome anytime I play. The clubhouse and restaurant are nice.The outdoor pavilion is a great place to hang after a round.

Hidden Gem

This course is in a small town about 20-25 minutes from Liberty/KC area. It is is an older course but has been kept up and is one of the nicest conditioned courses you’ll play around the KC Metro area. It is not a super long course but the tight fairways and change in elevation make it it a challenging track. I would recommend this place to anyone. They also have a brand new clubhouse with restaurant. Staff is always nice even to non-members.

Pace of play

Our foursome left after 13 holes due to the amount of time it was taking. When we drove by the foursome that was the second group ahead of us, we realized there was no one on 15,16, 17, or 18. We had a 12:32 tee time on Saturday and was required to have a significant delay to tee off at every hole. FYI.

Sore loser

We played this course 2 days ago and got our butts handed to us. Came back for redemption and did much better. Well placed tee shots, excellent long iron and fairway wood play is a must. Great course, great staff and other than space of play, great experience.

This course is a beast

This course is a beast. Especially if you are playing it for the first time. Well placed tee shots are a must as even if you are in the fairway the mature trees that line the fairways will leave you extremely frustrated. The course was packed so play was slow. The slope rating for this course, especially the back nine has to be through the roof. You better have excellent long iron and fairway wood play or the length will eat you up. I loved this course, but it can be humbling. The guy running the pro shop was completely on point. Great customer experience.
