Headed to the Lake of the Ozarks with the family in early September. Looking to play golf twice.

It seems like I Old Kinderhook should be one of the courses I play from what I've researched so far. I'm leaning towards Osage National for the other but I thought I'd ask my fellow WRXers if there was another course I should consider.

Thanks.

Old Kinderhook is a very good course. I played it a couple of weeks ago after a deluge and had a blast. Lots of variety, elevation changes and fun holes. Here's a link to a full photo tour.  https://www.flickr.c...157683832572162

Definitely play Old Kinderhook, by far the best public course at the Lake.   I haven't played Osage National in a few years, but it is a good track.  If you play there go for the River and Mountain 9's, and skip the Links 9 if only going for 18 and not all 27.  The Oaks at Tan-Tara-A was in decent shape last time I played it, so there is another option.

I played the Palmer course at Osage National several years ago.  I have vague memories of it, but I thought it was a decent course with a couple of memorable moments.  There was a second (or 3rd) approach shot to a green, as downhill as I've ever seen and I remember playing a par three and a par four along the river with tall, steep cliffs with houses on top, on the opposite shore.

I also played the RTJ Cove course and remember liking that better.  The par 3 cove hole was a lot of fun.  Its a big, rolling course - on better land for golf than Osage National.  Osage National felt more gimmicky to me.

Thanks guys. Old Kinderhook for sure then. I'm glad my internet skills led me right on that one.

And I think I might check out the RTJ Cove Course - there is an Arnold Palmer course I play a decent amount near where I live and I didn't realize he designed Osage - be nice to get a different designer.

Thanks again.  I'm going in less than a month and I'm quite excited.

If you have any private connections try to get on The Club at Porto Cima. If you want a really good value course Eldon Golf Club is a neat little track. A lot of times you can get tee times for under $20. It's no Kinderhook or Osage National but it was in great shape and a fun layout in my opinion.

Osage National is phenomenal. I play it every time I go there. Make sure to hit the River Mountain though.

Wanted to say thanks again for all the advice.

We stayed near the Village of the Four Seasons so I drove by The Cove and The Ridge a lot so it was hard not to want to play them.

Played Old Kinderhook. Had a great time but it was a WEIRD weather day-fog and rain clouds on the back then HOT and 100% humidity in the sun on the front (played back first). I liked the back nine a lot more than the front.  The front just didn't feel as natural as the back for whatever reason. 12-18 was flat out awesome.

Then I jumped on The Ridge one afternoon because it was cheap and wide open - I actually really enjoyed it even though it's not the Cove.  Played the backs at 6500 yards but a lot of big elevation changes. I actually really liked the par 3s which normally I don't - they used the water really well and the angle of the greens depending upon the tee box used.

Anyway. Thanks for the advice everyone.  The Ridge is worth checking out if you get to play twice while you're down there.

A friend played in a tourney there couple weeks ago. He said it was in very good condition. Most nicer courses around here usually are in good condition at this time of the year.

I live just 50 miles from it and always enjoyed playing Old Kinderhook.

I heard Jason Bateman lives down there and launders money for the cartel, be careful.

If you have any private connections I would try to get on at Old Hawthorne. If you are looking for public I would rank the courses in the area like this:

Eagle Knoll(Hartsburg, about 20 minutes south)
Tanglewood(25-30 minutes east)
Redfield(45 minutes or sou south, just past Jeff City)

These 3 are easily a step above any other public course in the area. Eagle Knoll is a tougher test, conditioning has been spotty this year but still decent. Tanglewood is always the best conditioned course in the area in my opinion. These 2 are also going to be your more expensive options. Redfield is the only course in the area that I know of that has bent grass fairways if thats more your style, everything else is Zoysia. Cool layout, pretty open but really fun.


AL Gustin(on campus): SUPER hilly. Fun course with a few quirky holes, but I always enjoy playing here. Greens usually are pretty good, and conditioning is the best of any course within city limits

Hail Ridge(Boonville, about 20 minutes east of Columbia): This one is kind of a wild card. The property sat dormant for 5 months and then someone bought it and is putting money into it. From what it was when I played it early this year to what it is now, its gotten a lot better. New cart fleet, redone clubhouse, fairways are usually in good shape, really fun layout. They had something in the greens though since the previous owner didnt leave any kind of list of what chemicals were used when they still had it, but they are getting better and the greens do roll well in the spots that didnt have the fungus or whatever it was. Probably my favorite layout based on just layout alone.

City munis Lake of the Woods and LA Nickell, standard muni courses, nothing special and wouldnt waste my time personally.

There are other local courses, but not really worth mentioning IMO. You can PM me if you have any other questions! If I didnt have to work I would come join you!

Seeing your Purdue avatar, you missed the correct weekend as a Boiler to be in Columbia as you could've witnessed the beatdown administered to my Tigers a few weeks ago.  Anyway, I would echo all of jli2636's sentiments above.  Also, one additional option even if you don't have private connections is Columbia Country Club.  While it is private, I was able to book a tee time through Boxgroove when I went back for a game a few weeks ago.  I think it was around $65 if that is in your price range.   Fun course which was in great shape.  Plus, I used to work there in my college days many years ago so it brought back some memories.  Anyway, have fun and enjoy CoMo.

Thank you and jli2636 for all your recommendations. I will look into those options you guys mentioned. I would say I am looking to spend up to $50-60 on a round, although I would pay up to a $100 for a really nice course. It's my birthday, I can treat myself.

And I had been planning on coming to the Purdue Mizzou game for months and would have had some connections for some great seats to the game, but a family party came up so I wasn't able to make it down. I was so bummed I couldn't make it down there for the game, especially after the smackdown we gave you guys :tongue:

Edit: looks like Columbia Country Club requires a minimum of two people to play. And unfortunately no private connections yet to try to get on there or Old hawthorne. One day, hopefully someday soon

And I had been planning on coming to the Purdue Mizzou game for months and would have had some connections for some great seats to the game, but a family party came up so I wasn't able to make it down. I was so bummed I couldn't make it down there for the game, especially after the smackdown we gave you guys :tongue:

Edit: looks like Columbia Country Club requires a minimum of two people to play. And unfortunately no private connections yet to try to get on there or Old hawthorne. One day, hopefully someday soon

Yeah, unfortunately the Mid-Missouri area outside of the lake is really lacking for that top tier type of public course. If you are willing to drive an hour and a half or so each way down to the lake, that opens up your options. Tons of quality golf down there.

I am coming to Columbia next week to visit my girlfriend, but she works on Thursday and it is my birthday so I'm going to go play. Anywhere you recommend playing 18 at?

I looked into lake of the ozarks but wasn't really feeling a 90 minute drive. From the looks and other recommendations, I'll probably end up at Eagle Knoll or Tanglewood
