WinterStone Golf Course

Independence, Missouri | 18 holes | Par: 72 | 6752 yards

WinterStone Golf Course is known as the course above the limestone mine, but it's also a championship caliber golf course. Craig Schreiner, the noted designer, created a course that takes advantage of the hilly, wooded terrain, with many uphill and downhill holes that demand strategic shot-making. There are also generous driving areas that allow for wide open play. Keep the ball in the fairway to avoid the steepest hills. The hills provide wonderful views of the surrounding countryside, with each nine traversing to a high point before returning down to the clubhouse. Twin lakes and creeks bring water into play on seven holes, demanding long drives to carry them on two holes.The course ranges in length from 6,752 yards from the gold tees to 4,976 yards from the blues. It's not especially long, yet the hills make many holes play longer than they're marked, so prepare to play an extra club to carry them. The Zoysia grass tees and fairways and Bent grass greens make this a top notch conditioned course.
