The Downtown Open is back! Grab your friends & your glory as you ride the streetcar down Main St, chipping off Kansas City’s landmarks & putting inside bars for this one of a kind Urban Golf Tournament! While you’ll find many of the amenities you’ve come to expect from a typical golf course, this will be anything but. Teeing off from rooftops, pitching from sidewalks and putting on street corners. No golf carts necessary as every hole is a short walk from the KC Ride Streetcar stops.
We are once again teaming up with local companies to design an Urban Golf Course that traverse some of our city’s greatest landmarks from the River Market, Kansas City, the Downtown Library, One Light Luxury Apartments, Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, and more!
As the tournament winds down for the day, join us at The Clubhouse, otherwise known as Washington Square Park, where the jeers from the crowd, live music, and booze will be potentially distracting as you play one of the many fun games in the park.
Local Architect and Construction companies are custom building each chip and putt so that 4 golfers can go at once, saving time and making each experience unique.
Check-in begins at The Clubhouse (AKA Washington Square Park) at 11:00 am.
Follow @KCCrewSports Instagram to see highlights from the event.

The Kansas City Club will be hosting the Longest Drive in their brand new golf simulators! Golfers will have a chance to compete in this for a shot to win an Epic Flash Fairway Wood from Callaway!
