Waconda is old school at it's best. The first two times I played it I was invited and the round was comped, but now I hear they have been allowing outside play for a pretty steep fee. It's a chance to play a piece of golden age architecture that has been maintained at a private club level. Bring your A game, you'll need it.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again
