Designed by Tom Jackson of South Carolina the Golf Club of Kansas provides a variety of practice facilities for all level of golfers. Practice bunkers, two chipping and pitching greens, 16 covered heated hitting bays, three all access grass tees for up to 50 players at a time, a 5,000 square foot putting green and a fairway practice bunker are only a few amenities the club offers. The club also provides miniature golf and baseball practice areas.
Hole 10: The long par 4 begins play on the back nine. The drive should land in the wide fairway setting up a long second shot on the dogleg right hole. Protecting the green are grass bunkers and trees along the right side of the fairway.
Hole 11: This par 4 provides plenty of trouble from tee to green. The drive must cross rough to a fairway that doglegs to the right. A fairway bunker sits on the far side at the dogleg. A wooded area right of the cart path calls for accuracy over distance on the tee shot. A long approach shot can drop 30 feet behind the green.
Hole 12: The first of two par 3’s on the back is protected by trees on the left side of the fairway. A small bunker is short right of the green and a larger one is on the front left.
Hole 13: A elevation change from tee to green provides added difficulty to this long par 4. At about 320 yards from the tee is a 15-foot drop off a rock wall that crosses the entire fairway. The second shot must cross a creek that runs in front of the green, protected by bunkers on the left and right.
Hole 14: The par 5 begins with a drive off the top of a quarry to the fairway below. Protecting the front of the fairway is a 60-foot rock face on the left and a 15-foot on the right. Trees replace the rock face on the right, as the player gets closer to the green. Grass depressions add to the difficulty of chips when the ball misses the putting surface.
Hole 15: An errant tee shot brings the rock waste bunker into play on the last of the par 3’s. Measuring a 186 yards from the black tees a deep sand bunker guards the left front of the green, with trees and the creek on the right.
Hole 16: A drive across the corner of the six bunkers on the left side of the fairway makes this hole a drive-able par 4. A poor attempt can land in the deep bunkers on the left side of the fairway of this dogleg left. Trees line both sides of the fairway, adding difficulty to the 14th handicap hole on the course.
Hole 17: A well placed tee shot is a must on this long dogleg right par 4. A fairway bunker lies at the far side of the fairway at the start of the dogleg. An accurate drive will set up a long approach shot. Hit towards the left of the green to avoid the four hidden bunkers protecting the right side.
Hole 18: Finish the round on this par 5 that measures up to 562 yards from the black. The lake that runs along the left side of the fairway can come into play. A risk-reward hole, hitting close to the lake on the tee shot enables longer hitters an opportunity to go for the green in two. Strategically placed bunkers protect the fairway and protecting the front of the green are five bunkers.
