Old Kinderhook

On Sunday July 14th, Amateur Players Tour Traveled deep into Missouri to play at Old Kinderhook! Nestled among beautiful valleys at the Lake of the Ozarks, lies one of America’s most spectacular courses. Old Kinderhook, a Tom Weiskopf signature course, is a 6,726-yard par 71 featuring zoysia tees and fairways with large bentgrass greens. It will challenge the most serious golfer, yet plays on the friendly side. The course is renowned for its unsurpassed drama: valleys, waterfalls, hills, trees and water hazards, plus its beautiful lake setting. The elevation changes and breathtaking views will thrill you at every hole. The 18-hole, par 71, golf course is open to the public year-round. It is the centerpiece of the 700+ acre Old Kinderhook master-planned community serving residents and guests. Routed through rugged Ozark hills, the course makes the most of nature’s beauty.
