Braeburn Golf Club At WSU is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Wichita, Kansas.
Braeburn Golf Club At Wichita State University began as the Crestview Country Club in the 1920's. In the 1960's, Crestview decided to move to east Wichita and construct a new facility. In 1968, WSU obtained Crestview which was adjacent to the campus and found itself operating a golf course. The clubhouse was opened as a private club, known first as "The Shocker Club" and then as "The University Club".
In 1994, the management of the WSU course adopted the name "Braeburn".

greens are always very good condition. fairways need until heat of summer to get good grass growth (bermuda fairways) new cart paths have been a big improvement. friendly staff and good practice areas. bunkers are inconsistent. some have good sand in them, others have areas in them where sand is very thin. good course layout and there is water on the back nine as well as large trees on several holes. challenging enough but not overly difficult. overall a fun course to play.

Tree lined fairways make this course enough of a challenge to keep your attention and greens are fair. Pace of play was good which is always nice on a Saturday morning.
