In 1896, two years after introducing golf to Kansas City at the Kenwood Golf Links east of Gilham and south of 36th Street, devotees of the game sought larger space here, at Seth Ward's east pasture. A $1-a-year lease was signed, and a nine-hole course was built by the members of the newly-formed Kansas City Country Club. The first clubhouse burned in April, 1897, but was replaced in three months. Nine more holes were added in additional space, opening on July 4, 1899.
