Craig's Facilities

Heart of America Golf Course

Kansas City MO


The River Course With Rolling Fairways, undulating greens, water in play on over half of the holes, natural areas on and around the course and a river flowing through the property, this 2,640 yard Par 35 River Course is a very challenging experience for the average golfer. The Rock Course A beautiful little par 3 course with water, trees, & a couple hilltop vistas coming into play to spice up your round. This is a great place for kids and beginners to learn the game. Also a great place for the more accomplished player to hone their iron play and short game skills. Practice Facilities: Our 36 station grass and artificial surface practice tee is open year round, weather permitting. Two separate pitching and putting greens are available to help you improve your short game
