Tom Watson, who developed his own game playing on the former Santa Fe Hills executive course in the city as a youth, says his new “Watson 9” in Maryville, Mo. is being “well-utilized,” especially by junior players. The Sykes/Lady Overland Park Golf Club par-3 has become “more popular recently,” reports General Manager Curt Nelson, thanks in part to a new unlimited-play-pass program.
The nine-hole golf course at Mozingo Lake Recreation Park will be ready to open in the summer of 2015, and will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Hall of Fame golfer Tom Watson’s latest nine-hole design alongside Mozingo Lake Golf Course in Maryville, Mo., is being tailored to children and beginners. Fundraising for the estimated $550,000 cost is underway, with donations and commitments of more than $125,000 so far.
