A Good Old Kansas City Course
Fred Arbanas (we used to call it "Longview") has always been one of my favorite KC courses. IT's got plenty of challenges, but it is fair. The greens are always in good shape, especially since they re-did them a few years ago. It's as long as you want it to be from the blues, and from the whites it's plenty challenging as well. Lots of elevation changes and rolling fairways, but not a pure "links" course by any means. Every hole has it's own flavor and character.
And one of the best things is that it's one of the few good courses in town that you can easily walk if you want. I really like this course.
I love the layout and elevation changes throughout. I hadn’t played here in several years but they’ve taken great care of the course. My only complaint was that the greens were very slow. If some effort to roll the greens were made it would be 5 out 5 stars for me. All in all very much worth the green fee.
Girl at check in not very friendly. Starter very nice. We enjoyed our day. Glad to see course open again.
Had a blast
Have planned to play this course for years...finally did and really enjoyed the round.
Greens getting re done
The greens are in really poor shape but they are going to be re sodding every green starting April 5th so should be really nice in a couple of months.
I have played Longview many times usually love it. Course is in horrible shape. They aerated the greens it was like putting on sand. Lots of dead sections on the greens, just not worth putting on. Course is closing next week for green renovation. Should already be closed. Waste of a green fee.
I’ve played at Fred Arbanas around 10 times over the last year or so and it really is a wonderful place. Great views of the always majestic Longview lake and some of the friendliest folks in town. Everyone I bring out here for the first time is always impressed and always comes back. I would say the only draw back is the drainage, if it’s rained in the last 36 hours or so it’s almost always muddier then you’d expect it to be. This is golf though perfect conditions never made a great player. Tee then high and let them fly.
