Comments

Paradise Pointe Golf Complex, in Kansas City, Missouri (Smithville) has two courses, The Posse Course and the Outlaw Course. Think of them as maternal twins. While their DNA is very similar, there are some fairly significant differences . . . much like a red haired boy and brown haired girl set of twins. Same parents but different chromosomes. The biggest difference in the two courses is that The Posse has Blue grass tees and fairways. The Outlaw has Zoysia. I actually prefer Blue grass if it is nurtured and maintained properly, as The Posse is. Both courses have a few prime real estate holes that are adjacent to the lake (although I prefer The Posse’s lake holes) and both have plenty of fairway and green-side bunkers. For whatever reason, The Outlaw’s sand seemed to be more consistently well maintained. Now for the similarities. Both courses are a Par 72 that are just over 7,000 yards from the tips. Both offer a great test of golfing skills that will require using every club in your bag. Both have a thick rough that are a bit too long for speedy play. Both have medium-size greens that are a little slow but roll true with a low level of complexity. Both have a few holes that offer sweeping views of the lake and course (I give the edge to Outlaw here). Both have pot bunkers guarding many of the greens. The comparisons can go on and on. But, make your own comparisons. Both courses are worth playing. So, take a little drive into the country of Clay County and enjoy two rounds of great golf.
