Fellow NLU golfers in Wichita, KS area?

Hey all. Just seeing if anyone has played around Topeka lately. I travel Kansas for work and am in Topeka tonight and tomorrow. Will probably have time for 9 tonight and 18 tomorrow morning. I’ve played most around town already but looking for any recommendations and always willing to play with new people!

I haven’t played up there very much, but Firekeeper is fantastic and would definitely recommend it!

Will second Firekeeper as a fantastic course! It is the only course in the Topeka area I have played

I loved Firekeeper, I would recommend it as well. It’s a little ways out of Topeka proper though, if time is an issue.

Did you end up getting out anywhere @St8kdinr? If so, would love to hear about it.

Hey! I ended up walking Cypress Ridge on Monday afternoon/evening and had a really nice round. Had a few fun holes and for $13 it was a steal. It was one that I hadn’t played before and I’ll definitely hit up again.
On Tuesday I played Firekeeper and as usual it was a blast. It’s one I need to make an effort to play at least a couple times a year. It’s worth the drive from Omaha. It’s definitely worth a stop for anyone in the area.

The best microbrewery in Wichita is easily Central Standard. Get their pilsner even if you’re an IPA person. The best microbrewery in Hutch is Sandhills, where Prairie Dunes has a collaboration.

Just to close the loop on this Roost stuff, the KC based Great Plains Golf Club has made the cut. If you’re interested in joining us the discussion has moved here;

I’ll stop spamming your thread now.

What’s going on guis! Headed to witchita for a store opening at the end of the month and I’m probably gonna bring the sticks. I see the station as a must play, just to visit the site of the Monday qualifying kurfuffle, if anyone is free, even for beers, hit me up.

@HaveOuimet fo you live out here? Can’t remember where you are from but saw your posts up thread.

Not anymore. Grew up in Newton but currently live in Tulsa.

Haven’t played a ton of public Wichita courses. Sand Creek Station is good though.

Hey, hope you enjoy your trip! You might reach out to @japolo1987 and see if he is around when you will be.

Would definitely recommend Sand Creek, and from there Quail Ridge in Winfield (~45 min drive) is always in really good shape as well. Hidden Lakes (~20 min drive to Derby) is a fun track that is well taken care of too.

As far as munis more local to the Wichita area, there is Auburn Hills and Tex Consolver out west, Arthur B Sim downtown, and MacDonald out east. Course conditions are not currently great at Sim and MacDonald.

Feel free to PM me if you need any restaurant/brewery/activity recs. Safe travels!

Yo! Appreciate the tag by @PushCartGodfather and would be happy to meet up and show you around the public options in/around the ICT. How long will you be in town? I’m going to be out of town at the beginning of June but will be around during the last week of May. PM me if you’re interested in playing!

Auburn Hills is in really good condition right now. Getting it primed for the KFT Monday Q. Thick rough and zoysia fairways starting to perk up nice. Greens are good, just a little bumpy in spots from the million rounds it gets played on every day by the Senior Leagues.

Wow, I had no idea they were getting a KFT Monday Q. I saw a guy at Southern Hills yesterday wearing an Auburn Hills polo yesterday and talked with him. I used to live just down the street from AH and played it a lot.
