We are always impressed. No matter where we are on the property the staff at Old Kinderhook is always first class. My wife and I come down once a year for a long weekend and it's the one trip we always look forward too. It's just such a great place but more so the staff and amenities make it that much more enjoyable. I cannot say enough nice things about the staff there from Joel in the Trophy Room to Walter at the Front Desk...and every single employee we run into in between. As well as the nice staff in the pro shop.

The course is our favorite in the staff and among all those we play on our travels and we know when we come down the course is always going to be in great shape. Knowing we can always count on superior course conditions is why we choose Old Kinderhook year after year.

This place is great! We are a military family and had just been through the process of yet another move, so I wanted to find a nice place we could go for some relaxation and fun. Old Kinderhook was exactly what we needed! Upon check-in, Deena was so friendly and helpful, going out of her way to make sure we had a quiet room and that we were comfortable. The rooms were spacious and super clean and we all thought the beds were quite comfortable. We ate at the Trophy Room restaurant for two dinners just because it was so convienent with excellent service and great food! Our kids (aged 10 & 7) loved the sand volleyball courts and both pools ... we had some cloudy weather the first day so they loved the indoor pool, but then when the sun came out we were enjoying the outdoor pool. The whole resort had a quiet, friendly feel and we ended up having great fireside chats with multiple families throughout our stay. The rates were beyond reasonable, especially when you receive 5-star service throughout the entire resort. We will absolutely be back!


I've been here for men's golf events, with my family and this last weekend with my wife. This place is just great. Everyone is friendly. And I mean everyone. Even the cleaning people. The food at the Hook Cafe and Trophy Room is excellent. They have many options and it's reasonably priced. The golf course is always in great shape. The pools are outstanding. It's clean. Great, great place. Can't recommend it high enough.


Attended for a golf tournament. We brought our boat and were able to enjoy the lake also. GORGEOUS grounds, great food, lovely atmosphere. The bartenders were super social and made the Trophy Room a great experience. The gate guards/bus workers were amazing as well, super nice. The location is great too, near town but secluded. Lots to do in the area.

We really had a great time here. We’re not golfers, but we got to relax and have a great time regardless.
Beautiful rooms, the best food in a wide radius out here, great proximity to the lake. Staff was excellent and very friendly and helpful.
Couldn’t ask for more. 🙂

One of the crown jewels of Lake of the Ozarks golf. Courses pretty well manicured. The greens are fair and run true but can be challenging based on different pin placements. There are wooded areas adjacent to the fairways that can make for some bad holes along the way. But if you stay in the fairways you can actually score pretty well here.

We ate at the Trophy Room for supper one evening during a recent vacation. The building and grounds were beautiful. The service was excellent, and the food was fantastic! Thanks for a great dinner with an even better view!

This venue hosted a pond hockey event for 8U boys paired with Synergy hockey. The hotel staff was amazing and allowed the boys places to play in a conference room, the rooms were nice and clean, the ice rink was in great shape, the atmosphere for the event was like none I have ever been to in 5 years of youth hockey! They had a lunch buffet for a reasonable price so the hockey families did not have to leave or wait a long time with the teams to eat (which can be a dreaded pain waiting a long time). The rink staff was on point and flexible with incoming bad weather and the kitchen prepared early to accommodate as well. I am extremely pleased with the entire weekend and our boys had one of the best experiences of their life they told us. Thank you for an amazing weekend and making it easy on us parents! It was all hockey all the time this weekend and we loved it.

Our server Samantha was delightful and really made this late Valentine's evening very special for me and my fiance. The presentation of our selections was perfect and the food was very good and reasonably priced

Having our wedding at Old Kinderhook was a dream come true. Old Kinderhook is a beautiful place, I originally wanted to have my wedding outside but due to the weather it was moved inside and it was just as pretty inside as it was outside. The outside window lighting made a nice setting on our wedding day. The staff was great, they helped me from Day 1 and I could email or call them anytime with questions I had leading up to my wedding day, which was nice, because everyone knows brides get stressed out easily.

Perfect getaway weekend whether summer or ice skating in the winter. All you need right here! Friendliest staff, resort and rooms above average and lunch was amazing.

It's a little off the beaten path but definitely worth the trip . You will be wowed just driving through the gates and the food, top notch!

Matt Robinet

All of your staff is excellent. We are especially grateful to Jasen Jones at the hotel. He went out of his way to help my mother find a power cord she had lost in a previous visit, and was very helpful with information and with checking out. Jasen is a great asset. We also appreciate everyone at the golf course. It is amazing.

I want to compliment you and your staff for an outstanding experience during the last two days. You and your team were very professional, helpful and courteous. Everyone was very professional and helpful in every respect. The process of checking in, to obtaining information, to getting a tee time….all was extremely smooth. Over my 40 years of attending events and meetings, I would say your team and the staff and Old Kinderhook was one of the best organized events I have experienced. My clients were delighted with the entire event and the individuals associated with it. The golf course was in great shape, the tournament was very well organized, and the celebrities could not have been more professional. And it really helps when you draw one of the better golfers in that group. Jim Eisenreich could not have been more gracious. He made the round of golf and the dinner the night before very delightful. Please pass my comments on to your team and all the folks at Old Kinderhook. They were delightful and very professional. It was a very enjoyable two days.
