Be sure to call out, "fore!" when you take a swing with your best iron at Shirkey Golf Club.
To see it, go to Higginsville. If you're not quite sure where that is, it's about 90 miles (145 kilometers) from Jefferson City, the capital of the state.
Part of what makes Shirkey Golf Club so charming is its remote location. However, you should be warned that there are no hotels nearby. Convenient places include the Great Wolf Lodge Kansas City, 45 miles (72 kilometers) away, The Raphael Hotel, Autograph Collection, 35 miles (56 kilometers) away, and the InterContinental Kansas City at The Plaza, 35 miles (56 kilometers) away.
After you fill your your imagination with ideas and inspiration, don't neglect your stomach as well. It's at Shirkey's 19th Hole (901 Wollard Boulevard, Richmond), just 0.2 miles (0.3 kilometers) away.
