Golf Season Continues at Old Kinderhook!

With the conclusion of our fall green aeration, the golf season at Old Kinderhook continues. The warm temperatures we were experiencing helped with the recovery of the greens following this process.  We are now in the midst of select tree removal around some of the greens at our Lake of the Ozarks golf course.  This will allow more sunlight and significantly improve the health of the grass. We strive to continually improve golf course conditions that our members and visitors enjoy each year!

Tip from the Pro


Practicing excellence in golf course maintenance includes the aeration process. It is a necessity in overall health of the greens. This makes putting a bit "bumpy" for a short time as the greens heal. Here are our best recommendations if playing a course following aeration:
  • Bring your patience to the golf course - bumpy greens make putting less precise  
  • Use a different, older putter, as playing aerated greens can be tough on equipment
  • Understand the greens will play slower than normal, a heavier putter is helpful  
It is also helpful to spend a little extra time on the practice green after greens aeration. Here's to excellent playing conditions!

Old Kinderhook golf course is located just 3 miles west of Camdenton on Hwy 54.  The 18-hole, par 71 golf course at the Lake of the Ozarks is open to the public year-round.  It is the centerpiece of the 700+ acre Old Kinderhook master-planned community serving residents and guests.  Nestled among the beautiful valleys of the Ozark hills, the course makes the most of nature's beauty.  Contact the Golf Shop at 573-317-3573 to schedule a tee-time or golf lesson!
