Eagle's Landing is one of Kansas City's great golf destinations. The course first opened in 1965 and was designed by Bob E. Baldock.
The course, formerly known as Belton Municipal Golf Course, was closed in July 1998 to begin the renovation. It reopened in October 1999 with extensive rennovation under the supervision of golf architect Jeff Klaiber.
The course now has four sets of tees to challenge all skill levels. Water shows up on seven of the holes, but there are no impossibly long water carries. The layout is at times woodsy and at others, more like a links course. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the course are the number of pot bunkers that are often deep enough to force a sideways or backwards shot just to escape. The crowning features of Eagles' Landing are the 69 bunkers that pepper the landscape.
The course plays 6,900 yards from the championship tees, 6,348 from the white tees, 5,700 from the gold tees and 4,909 from the red tees.

Challenging course with a thick rough. Easy to lose golf balls.

GREAT GOLF COURSE FOR TOURNMENT PLAY, BECAUSE MANAGEMENT KNOWS HOW TO RUN A TOURNAMENT. COURSE IS VERY TOUGH, SO IF YOUR HANDICAP IS MORE THAN TEN, PLEASE STAY AWAY.

Course has thick rough but is kept in good shape, pays to hit the fairways. The employees are friendly and helpful. Food is plain but good. Kitchen and snack bar are kept clean. Restrooms are clean. Driving range just opened and is in good shape. The course is getting busier now that a course nearby has closed down. It pays to call ahead to get a tee time.

Excellent course, challenges on many holes but also fair to the non-pro golfer.
