Since 1915, Excelsior Springs Golf Course has been challenging orb-smashing novices and professional putters alike with its championship, par 72 golf course, having hosted current PGA regulars Tom Watson, Payne Stewart, and Tom Pernice. Tee off toward 18 pins spread over 6,603 yards of rolling hills, elevation changes, and challenging obstructions, including fully grown trees, water hazards, and a seven-foot basketball center guarding the hole and ready to block any incoming shots. Cushy golf carts whisk club-carriers from zoysia-grass fairways to well-manicured greens, allowing golfers to breeze down the 475-yard tree-lined 15th hole. After playing through, ditch the cart and hone your home-run swing with a bucket of balls at the on-site driving range.

Both awarded a four-star rating by Golf Digest, the Outlaw and Posse courses at Paradise Pointe Golf Complex hug the jagged waterline of Smithville Lake, jutting out onto peninsulas to incorporate picturesque coves. Sculpted into the landscape in 1982, the original Posse course leads golfers over rolling bluegrass fairways that present multiple opportunities for golfers to appreciate the lake's grandeur and make bets with willing waterfowl. The Outlaw course, characterized by zoysia fairways, large greens, and ample opportunities to bask in the maritime surroundings, was added 12 years later. Wind makes for a formidable foe on both courses, placing a premium on proper club selection and choice of ball flight.

Since opening its fairways in 1967, Liberty Hills Golf Club has cultivated a golf environment that challenges all players with a versatile landscape that earned it hosting rights to the 2005 Missouri Amateur tournament and several Midwest Section PGA events. Starting out from the stately white clubhouse that anchors the club’s 140 acres of rolling terrain, golfers embark on a 6,530-yard jaunt that culminates at the highest elevation in Clay County. The fairways coil around two large central ponds that bear heavily on shot-making decisions, forcing them to choose between attempting to play a hook shot or hook a fish for lunch.
