Comments: Lancaster Country Club is a very nice public course right on Highway 63. The course is mostly wide open with beautiful blue grass tee boxes and fairways. The greens, too, are very nice and are fairly slow, although they hadn't been mowed for a couple of days and there was still dew on them. I've never seen blue grass in this good of condition. I actually prefer these fairways to the zoysia fairways on which I normally play; the ball sits up nicely and they are a rich green color. Hazards were minimal, however, the large lake adjacent to the course came into play on two holes. The views from the course are just beautiful and you can see for miles and miles. A special thanks to Lisa Shepherd, manager, and Herb Treece for their northern Missouri hospitality. For more pictures of the course go to: www.facebook.com/mogolftour

Comments: Macon Country Club is a beautifully maintained course located amidst the hills and farms in north central Missouri. The course was founded in the early 1900's and many of the trees are likely original. And, there are a lot of them protecting the already narrow fairways. The membership seems to be friendly and actively engaged in the success of the course. The greens are small but lush and hold very well. The club president, Nic Muncy, was quite the host. This young man can do anything and does at the club. Besides leading the management of the club, he volunteers his time often to fix and renovate things around the course. He is really an asset to the club. For more pictures please visit our Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/mogolftour

Comments: Timber Ridge was originally built in 1956 with sand greens. The course's ownership group converted the greens to bent grass in the 90's. The greens are currently so nice they look fake. Basically, the only flaws in them are the deer tracks from the previous night. The course is short but is extraordinarily well maintained with short and lush blue grass. Except on the parameter or in one of several ponds scattered throughout the course, it is very difficult to lose balls. Bob Newman, the courses superindendent, is passionate and meticulous about the course's condition. For more pictures please visit our Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/mogolftour
