Comments: Great small city country club located in the far western portion of the State Fair city. Jaron Lucchesi, the club pro, was as nice and accommodating as you will find; a real asset to the club. Sedalia CC is a very playable course with large, beautiful greens. There is some break to the greens but nothing too extreme. While most of the holes are lined with mature trees, it doesn't play extraordinarily tight. The fairways and tee boxes are very nice and the course will test all aspects of your game. Many types of hazzards: fairways bunkers, traps on many of the greens, creek, lakes, etc. Sedalia Country Club provides a great golfing and country club experience. If the food is good, which I did not try, they will have hit the trifecta. For more pictures of the course go to: www.facebook.com/mogolftour

Comments: The course is just outside the main gate of Whiteman Air Force Base. The front nine was built in the 1950's when some enterprising GIs, with a passion for golf, approached the general requesting a few bulldozers so they could sculpt a golf course from the land across the street from the base. The general agreed and the rest is history. The back nine was built in the late 90's. Royal Oaks could easily rate 4 out of 5 balls if the grasses were better. It has a wonderful layout and foundation to be a top notch course. When I was there, though, the tees, fairways, roughs and greens were quite spotty. Each hole is not contiguous with any other hole so a lot of the course is fairly tight. Many of the holes were lined with mature trees and woods on both sides. To exacerbate the layout, the course designer added many bunkers and water throughout. But, the course is still very playable and enjoyable to play.

Comments: I have seen Tanglewood from Highway 54 many times and always wondered about it. Tanglewood Golf Course is a golfer's golf course. It is beautifully manicured with no flashiness; just straight up, high quality golf. All grasses (tees, fairways, roughs and greens) are almost perfect. The greens are large, non-symmetrical, reasonably quick and have a medium level of complexity. There is also trouble lurking at every turn, including: fairway bunkers, bunkers protecting the greens, large lakes and very tall and thick stretches of natural grasses lining most fairways. As long as you do not spray your ball too erratically, lost balls should be kept to a minimum. Since I visit Jeff City frequently, I will try to play Tanglewood whenever possible. It really is a nice, quality course. Go play it when the opportunity presents itself and thank me later. For more pictures please visit our Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/mogolftour
