Kansas City native and World Golf Hall of Fame Member Tom Watson designed the course at The National, the area’s top golf experience and one many consider among the most challenging—and rewarding—in the country. Each hole at The National is in perfect harmony with the rolling terrain, striking bluffs and wooded glens, offering spectacular views and elevations unique to the Parkville countryside.
