While this course is about 40 minutes from Kansas City, it is well worth the drive. I usually make at least one "pilgrimage" each year to Shirkey Golf Club and it never disappoints.
While not super long, there are scads of trees here to eat up your score. I have a 2.4 handicap and have broken 80 twice out of about 12 attempts. The greens are bent grass and are the star of this course providing perfect conditions to test your putting. You will not blame the greens for your high score here.
The only knock would be the hospitality, however; it is very much consistant with the Kansas City area...which is pay your fee at the clubhouse and everyone leaves you alone. Nobody around with their hand out to clean your heads or shlep your clubs.
I recently played a round on a Monday morning at 9:00 a.m. with a close friend and had the course to ourselves. Having paid only $30 (including cart), what is not to like about cheap golf, great course conditions, uncrowded atmosphere, and having a few ducats left for a nice lunch? Anywhere else, this would cost you about $150 or more.
While a little off the beaten track, this is one of Kansas City's little known gems.
