The Golf Club at Creekmoor in Kansas City / Raymore, MO is so perfect and there are sooooo many houses surrounding the course, it almost feels like “The Stepford Golf Course” or a golf cult of some sort. If so, sign me up! Seriously, this course is beautiful. It is immaculate. No weeds. No bare spots. Not a blade of grass out of place. The plethora of sand traps are fluffy white and raked to perfection. It is maybe the best groomed and maintained courses in the state. But . . . there are no trees. I saved Creekmoor for the fall so that I could showcase this beautiful course with the changing leaves. Yeah, not so much. The first few holes of the back nine are still virgin and the trees have not been replaced by houses so play it while you can. We have to assume that Creekmoor is the ultimate in planned golf communities. Shoot, they even have their own schools. To maximize the number of houses adjacent to the course, you weave in and out of streets, making the distance between green and tees inordinately long in many cases and, therefore, discouraging most players from walking. All of the grasses are perfect, almost fake looking (I wish the carpet in my living room was as nice as the tee boxes). The greens are large with some significant undulation on a few holes. The green fees are fairly expensive, but since this is one of the nicest courses you have the opportunity to play, without being a member, it is actually reasonable.
It is a long course, kept in excellent condition. There are 2 par 3 holes that must carry over water! There are some beautiful views of Creekmoor Lake along Holes 13 and 14 and 16. It is a challenging course!
