Next to giant Smithville Lake, the Paradise Pointe Golf Complex offers golfers a shoreline feel that's rare in the middle of the country. And it can be had for the remarkably affordable weekend rate of $28, which makes it the Kansas City area's best budget day of golf. The facility has two courses, the Posse and the Outlaw, both links-style courses with few trees. We're partial to the Outlaw, if only for the knee-knocking experience of the tenth hole, a long par 3 that asks golfers to hit to a peninsula green that juts out into the lake water. It is an unusual challenge that's almost not fair. Only it is.
