I was able to stop by there this weekend and play the full 18. Really enjoyed the course overall, and glad to see another course of similar setup to Down Under in the KC area.
Although it was short with most holes around ~250ft, almost every one made you really work for the birdie. Lots of baskets that were visible from tee, but inaccessible if attempting to go straight at it - requiring you to weave your drive down the fairway in an attempt to get a look. John did an excellent job of utilizing the land provided, and I saw next to zero signs of ivy.
I took a couple random pictures while out there if interested: http://imgur.com/a/0qtyU
