Legacy Park Course in Lee's Summit
« on: January 16, 2008, 04:15:50 PM »
I got lucky yesterday and helped Lee's Summit Parks pour eight tee pads for the new course.  The course layout looks nice, they are hoping to have it ready to play by spring.

Wooded?  Open?  Mature Tress? 

Flat?  Hilly?

Water?

Length?


edit:  after some google maps help, it looks open and flat.

There are trees, there is openess. It is all hilly(not Water Works hilly). It lays out right now at a little over 7000 feet to the long baskets. No water.

Excellent! Another new course!
How big did they build the tee boxes?

legacy is located on blackwell road, between colbern road and langsford road.  it's lee's summit's flagship park, and it's already full of soccer fields and softball fields.  we got our own little area, near where the groundskeepers work out of.  it's a nice little chunk of land with some medium elevation changes and lots of mature trees.

the course is going to be located in the NW corner of the park, near the maintenance building.

Good to see more activity on the eastern side of the metro!  Who is spearheading this project? Who designed the course?

That's great news. Now when the Olathe Posse is making a raid on Pleasant Vale, we an swing by Legacy Park and crush the locals there too on our way home. hahaha

i think you'll like this legacy park course when it's ready andy...

you'll actually have to throw the destroyer more than 250 on a couple of the holes
