Independence Golfers Will Exercise Their Right to Choose

Within a year, golfers in Independence, Missouri will have a choice of two more courses, tripling the choices of where they can play their favorite game. Developers Golf Strategy and Limpus Property LLC broke ground on the 27-hole facility this year, with hopes of completing it at the end of 2002.

The courses will be located at Drumm Farm on Lee’s Summit Road, at the intersection of Kentucky and Missouri 291. Drumm Farm Course, to be augmented by a clubhouse and driving range, will feature a 7,100-yard, par-72 layout. Right next door will be the nine-hole executive course. The developers are still working out the design of the 18-hole championship-length track.
