It's that time of year!

With the winter blues all but behind us it's time to get out and play. It just so happens that one of Kansas City's classic courses is throwing a 9 hole, two-man scramble event next week on St. Patty's day. Swope Memorial, one of the oldest, yet timeless courses in the city will be hosting the event next Wednesday, March 17th. The entry fees are $60.00 per team which includes the 9 hole green fees with cart, appetizers, green beer, and the option for $10.00 skins play. The event kicks off at 4 pm and is open to the public.

Opened in 1934, Swope Memorial is the only public course in Kansas City that has hosted a PGA Tour event with the 1949 Kansas City Open. When you get out to the rolling fairways that adorn Swope you can almost taste the history. Golf legends such as Ben Hogan and Sam Snead have battled Swope Memorial's multi-tiered greens and 50+ bunkers all while enjoying the beautiful skyline of downtown Kansas City.

Not only does it not have any water hazards, a mortal enemy to many, the value is one of the best in the city. While you can play for no more than $44.00 which are the prime weekend rates that include a cart, you can also pay as low as $20.00 to walk the course for their twilight rates which start at 2 pm. 

If you can't make it out next Wednesday for the scramble be sure that you make it a point to visit Swope Memorial this season. It is always well kept and you will most definitely not be disappointed so book your tee time at today!
