The Deer Creek Golf Club has officially shut down. The Overland Park golf course at 7000 West 133rd Street had its last day of operations on Friday, April 1.   

Why it happened: Before Deer Creek’s owner GreatLife KC announced the golf course’s closure, developers had proposed a plan for a $65 million multi-building apartment complex to be built nearby as a way to update the aging facility.
