Jefferson City has Jefferson City CC , a private club, as the premiere course in the area. Must know someone to play a round.
Oak Hills Golf Center is located on Ellis Blvd. at south end of town. Decent municipal course - several holes rebuilt recently - and a driving range.
Turkey Creek Golf Center is located just north of the river. It's a par 3 layout with an excellent practice range. A second nine is being added that is handi-capable (usable by the physically impaired).
Eagle Knoll GC - located between Jeff City and Columbia in Hartsburg - is one of the best semi-private courses in Missouri. Got super reviews from Golf Digest when it opened. The best work of regionally famous architect Gary Kern.
Railwood Golf Club is located in nearby Holt's Summit. Originally an 18-hole layout, it has been cut back to 9 due to financial problems. A decent course with very interesting holes, what's left of it.
Columbia, MO has two private and four public courses, including AL Gustin at University of Missouri.
Fulton has Fulton CC - a 9-hole layout - and Tanglewood GC (a course that position players can exploit).
Lake of the Ozarks region 50 miles to south has a dozen + golf courses.
Have fun! And, get into the dynamic pricing network to save $$ on greens fees.
Interesting idea - especially for people who don't play terribly frequently.
Perhaps it could be something as simple as requiring that a certain number of the 10 best (5 I guess) come the most recent 20.
Fair point. This could be the roadblock.
