Drumm Farm Golf Club - Independence, MO

Featuring immaculate course conditions and a world-class clubhouse,

Drumm Farm Golf Club in Independence, Missouri offers one of the best golfing experiences in the entire state. About 25 minutes from downtown Kansas City, the 7,121 yard, par-72 championship course sits atop 280 acres of preserved farmland and features meandering creeks, rolling fairways, well-manicured bent grass greens, and five sets of tees that make the course playable for golfers of all skill levels. Drumm Farm was designed by famed golf course architect Dr. Michael Hurdzan and opened to the public in 2002.

Many golfers consider the eighth hole to be the 7,121 yard, par-72 Championship golf course’s most challenging. Playing a very long 246-yards from the back tees, this par 3 leaves little room for error and very little chance for birdie. Other holes that stand out on this open track known for its challenging, thick rough that gobbles up balls with no discrimination, are the two long homeward holes—the 9th and 18th. With both holes playing over 500 yards, golfers will be more than ready for a refreshing cocktail at the clubhouse once they finally put the ball in the back of the cup.

Amenities at Drumm Farm Golf Club are numerous and are highlighted by the 60-station driving range and two practice greens. Lessons are available with private and group packages offered, all taught by their staff of PGA professionals. Another great amenity is Drumm Farm Golf Club’s full-service golf shop featuring a wide variety of golf products. Vendors include Nike, Titleist, Under Armour, Greg Norman, Gear for Sports, Cutter & Buck, Imperial, Foot- Joy and Ping. The shop also features a plethora of products that will make any golfer look and feel like a professional, including towels, divot tools, golf bags, bag tags and umbrellas.

The biggest amenity, however, is one golfers travel near and far to enjoy after their round. Drumm Farm Golf Club’s full-service, spacious clubhouse is one of the best in the entire region and is the ideal venue for corporate golf outings, business meetings, holiday gatherings and any other special event. The elegant and intimate dining room can accommodate groups of up to 125 and features vaulted ceilings, a stone fireplace and a breathtaking view overlooking the 18th hole. For those looking for a more relaxed setting, Mulligan’s Grill is the perfect place for a bite to eat before or after your round. Finally, Drumm Farm offers a beautiful banquet room setting complete with a wireless audio system.

But enough of this amenity talk; we’re a golf publication after all! Located adjacent to the Championship Course is Drumm Farm’s nine-hole Executive Course. Playing 1,674 yards, this par-30 layout is designed for players of all skill levels. It is the ideal track for beginners to learn the game and for more advanced players to fine tune their short games. The course features three holes that play over 250 yards and six holes that are reachable by most golfers with a mid-range iron.

For players who choose Drumm Farm Golf Club often, there is a very generous Player Rewards Program. Free to join, the program is points-based with all points redeemable for items such as range balls, rounds of golf and even food.

Naturally, the same is true for those special weddings and banquets.
