Good management. The biggest advantage of this course is the fact there are tee boxes that allow you to play to your ability.

I try to play this course anytime I am in the area. A scenic golf course on the edge of town, it is one of the best challenges around. It requires a lot of different shots using every club in the bag. The price is very reasonable if you can wait until 2:00 p.m. or later.

Beautiful Flint Hills course. Aswome sand in bunkers. Well maintained. Some damage to fairways from winter kill and drainage issues on a few holes. Great test of golf with a new clubhouse that is magnificient. This is a course you can play every day and not grow tired of it. The rack rate is high for the area, but not for the quality of the golf. Play it if you get the opportunity.

Very Enjoyable - A variety of tee boxes to chose from based on your skill level. You must be in the fairway or at least the first cut of rough because there is no second cut. If you go out - you are toast

Played a twilight rate on Columbus Day weekend. Could not have been happier, though the time of year meant some wear and tear was showing on some holes, overall the course was excellent for October. There were some blind shot holes -- particularly #4 --- where the line of play was obscure and couldn't really be deduced from the card. But the contouring throughout the course, the bunker placement, and the strategic challenge more than made up for any nitpicking I could do. This is a great example of a prairie links, with the wind, the waving grass and the cedar scrub framing the winding fairways. Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience, worth repeating.

The play all day price of $49 on the internet make playing this course a real bargain. Last time we played we were fortunate to meet Jim Colbert on the course. Excellent course and is a must play, again and again, and again. We are about 75 miles from the course yet we still play it about 6 times a year.
