Wow! I had no idea. Staley Farms Golf Club in Kansas City, MO is one of the best courses in the state, public or private. It is stunning. And, it is one of the hardest in the city and state. The course is well laid out and very, very well maintained and groomed. There is a single nice concrete path running throughout, making it impossible to get lost, except between the 9th green and 10th tee (but since it is private, this really isn’t an issue). The Bent grass greens and fairways are flawless. The greens have a very high level of complexity and three putts are very common and unavoidable at times. The fairways are fairly wide but if you miss them by a foot, the reasonably thick roughs will grab your ball and will prevent your next shot from coming out cleanly. If you miss the fairways more than a few feet, in certain locations, you will lose your ball in the long natural Missouri grasses.

The course also has its fair share of water and sand. The fairway bunkers have a darker, more course type of sand. And, the bunkers, green-side, are of the white, fluffy variety.

Staley Farms is so nice I really cannot find anything to complain about so I will pick on the houses lining almost every fairway. I’m from St. Louis (but grew up in Gladstone) and we have this great store called Sherwin Williams. This nifty little store sells paints in any color you can think of. For whatever reason, the KC Northland area’s neighborhood associations must prohibit any color other than a derivative of beige. I mean really . . . every house looks the same. If you are all color blind, at least consider brick or stone to add some diversity and texture to your homes. This course deserves to be surrounded by magnificent homes with individual character. That is all.
