Hillcrest at the Heartland Club
A Donald Ross gem in transition.
A traditional turn of the century layout . Targeted shots are key. Suggestions on GPS SYSTEM very helpful. Lots of work and care being given to get the former country club Ross design back to championship form.

Read all the reviews
Really do not understand some of the bad reviews. I've played this course since it was in receivership and then purchased. It was at best, pasture golf. But in the last few years they have done an excellent job bringing back a Donald Ross gem. They have aerated the rough, the greens, unfortunately for us where recently sanded but still in very good shape. And all the tee boxes have been well maintained. The driving range is coming back as well. Kudo's to the new ownership and I hope the efforts continue. Give this course a chance and you might very well love it as I do. Uneven fairways, risk reward and beautiful vistas, this is a very challenging venue.

Traveled across the State to play this Donald Ross course. Really a shame the condition of the course, even worse the guy in the shop acted he was doing us a favor selling us a cold hot dog. What a waste, Mr Ross most likely would like his name removed.

Slow play, got stuck behind a fivesome which is not suppose to be allowed,found out later they were members, I guess my money isn't the same. No lush turf, carts driven anywhere they wanted to, no marshalls, slow play, Asked for are money back because it was slow and was told tough and go somewhere else if we didn't like it. We did, Swope was in excellent shape and played in 3 1/2 hours. .Alot cheaper also.

Great course steeped in history all around
I didn't pay regular price so keep that in mind but I really enjoyed this course since i like courses that have character and good design. This is a "must golf" for any one in Kansas City Metro Area.
