The Sinkhole at Canyon Farms
By Torleif Sorenson on 6/25/15
Canyon Farms Golf Club in Lenexa, Kansas has a new hazard. A really hazardous hazard.
As KCTV-DT in Kansas City reports, a massive sinkhole opened up on Canyon Farms earlier this week. The most logical explanation for the crater is that the course was built over a former rock quarry, so heavy rains that have pelted the KC metro in the last week evidently washed out enough of the supporting fill. KCTV also reports that the club has had a geologist out to examine the site.
The course is a Tom Jackson design that includes rock walls 60 feet in height.
In golf course marketing, elevation changes are a particular point of focus. But we're sure that Leigh Ann Marshall, the club's director of marketing, would like prospective members to ignore this particular elevation change.

Apparently the interest in "big hole" golf is spreading. The folks at TaylorMade must be happy.
