Tom Watson is certainly the most successful golfer in the history of Kansas City (the Missouri side), so it’s significant that the eight-time major winner chose Blue Hills Country Club to host his long-running charity golf outing. For 25 years, a foursome that included Watson along with Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Lee Trevino, would take to the tree-lined fairways of Blue Hills, raising a cumulative $12 million for the city’s Children’s Hospital.

The club, which sits just within the Missouri border, is one that places value on tradition; perhaps that’s why during its century-plus of existence, there have only been five head professionals. The design itself has expanded — totaling more than 7,300 yards of golf in the present day — but has otherwise remained consistent with Robert Dunning’s original design, thanks to a series of green renovations and a series of forced carries over the property’s creek. Watson remains an honorary member...not to get your hopes up, but if you receive an invitation to play, keep your eyes open!

Average Reviewers Score:
Description: Blue Hills Country Club originated in 1912 but Robert Dunning designed the golf course in 1963 when the club moved to its present location. The greens have since been converted to A-4 bent grass putting surfaces. Rating: 6 out of 10 Reviews: 1

So long and tough. Not too memorable aside from a few holes. Mid tier in terms of private KC clubs.
