If you live in Kansas City you have undoubtedly noticed the beautiful tower right off of Highway 50/350 a little north of Lee’s Summit. Growing up in KC, I had heard of Unity Village but had no idea what it was. Well, now I know. Unity is the world’s premier resource for spiritual support. I believe they used to have a college of some sort but now their claim to fame is providing prayer and spiritual support for those in need. Plus, they have a 9-hole golf course. Who knew?

Unity Village Golf Course is fairly short and is in transition. James Burrow, the course new GM, came from Hidden Trails Golf Course in Dexter, MO and has big plans for the course. I actually talked with James while playing all of the courses in SE MO a couple of years ago. He is a very nice young man. James has aggressive plans to dramatically improve the Unity course. An irrigation system is being installed and will be complete by the end of 2018. This will be a huge improvement. While the and tee boxes are in need of water, the greens are in superb condition. They are small and flat with a slope from the back to the front, typical of rural courses. They roll true and are surprisingly pretty darned quick. There are a several sand traps and a few other opportunities to get in trouble (like the 2 large trees right in the middle of the fairway of the very short 185 yard par 4) but this is one of the easier courses in the state. The slope rating is 88 to 109. By the way, the famous Unity Tower over looks the first hole so you have the opportunity to get up close and personal with this famous KC landmark. That’s worth the drive to Unity Village to play their course by itself.
