Residents of Signature Place that know the difference between a driver and a putter enjoy access to a fine public golf course that’s right in the neighborhood. Actually, Sykes/Lady Overland Park Golf Course addresses your needs even if you are new to the game.
Sykes/Lady is just northeast of the intersection of Quivira Road and West 127th Street. It is one of the more popular and well-maintained courses in the entire metropolitan area.
There are three championship nines – North, South and West – that can be played in different 18-hole combinations. All three play to a par of 35. Any two nines will play about 6,400 yards long from the back tees, although other sets of tees accommodate all skill levels. Hit it straight off the tee to avoid the strategically placed bunkers and ware hazards. The branches of large, mature trees will ensnare the occasional stray shot.
Par-3 Course Another Option
If you are a beginning golfer, consider starting out on the nine-home executive-style course. The 1,093-yard collection of par threes is quite manageable, regardless of how you’re hitting the ball.
Sykes/Lady is open every day of the year except Christmas, weather permitting. The Zoysia grass holds up well under a wide variety of weather conditions. The facility offers a fully stocked pro shop, driving range with 20 hitting stations and four practice greens. The Greenside Grill offers both indoor and outdoor seating.
Golf is just one of many outdoor recreational activities within easy reach of those living at Signature Place. To learn more about all that there is to do in the south-suburban Kansas City area, please contact us.Back to all posts
