Comments

Carthage Golf Course in Carthage Golf Course, MO has a lot going for it. First, a prime tee time is one of the “toughest tickets” to come by in the region. Even with the quality of courses in nearby Joplin, many golfers from the area LOVE this course. And for good reason. It is an excellent layout with many fun holes. The original nine (now the back) was built in 1937 and the second nine was completed in 1982. Since then they renovated the original nine in 2002.

Secondly, the PGA pro, Mark Peterson has a great reputation as an instructor and club fitter. In fact, Carthage Golf Course is the only course in SW MO to carry the full line of Scotty Cameron putters.

A few of the greens and fairways are not in perfect condition, but based on the conscientiousness of Mark and the green keepers’ team, I fully expect the turf to improve over the next year or two.

I struggle at many courses to find interesting photographic subjects. Not at CGC. This course has an abundance of great photo opps. This is indicative of the personality of the course. I recommend making the trek to Carthage to play this course, particularly if you have dinner afterwards at Lucky J Restaurant and Arena. What is the arena you ask? It is a rodeo and training facility that you can watch as you eat. Last night, as I sat at my table eating a steak I watched people learn to rope calves on horseback. Pretty cool for city boy.
