Comments: Hail Ridge is actually quite nice, particularly for a public course in a smaller community. The fairways and greens were thick, reasonably manicured and as soft as a baby's behind. It is not a terribly hard course, unless you have a difficult time hitting straight because there are large areas of native grasses (really tall and thick) that come into play on every hole. Also, there is minimal sand except the one trap protecting the front of the 18th green. Actually, make that 2 traps. There is a second one I would have never noticed on the back side of the 18th green had I not hit my ball into it . . . If you are driving between KC and St. Louis and have some extra time, I would definitely recommend playing Hail Ridge. And, it is just a half a mile north of 70. I asked one of the employees why the course is called Hail Ridge and he said: "Because it'll give you Hell sometimes." Nice answer and true.
