I have not played a ton of courses, but here are some of my favorite;

1. The Rock (Salina, soon to be permanent)

2. Hays (original tees and pins, but the new are growing on me)

3. Newton (especially with that huge tree down right in front of one of the tee boxes! It's the one where you drive through the trees... :wink: )

4. Emporia (the one that was “new” at their tourney)

5. Hutch is good either way!

There are other courses I like too that could easily be on this list, like Wichita (Herman Hill), Salina (both sides are cool), Ellis (have not played all the new holes), Pratt, and others. I have not played most of the courses in the eastern most part of the state and look forward to it! I have seen a KC wide and Swope Gold looked awesome!

My 8) became a happy face? These weren't necessarily in order except for the first 3.

I've been thinking long and hard about this one....My top five list is not my oppinion of the best or most challenging but rather if I were to move to a town where I could only play that course for the rest of my life which course would I have the most fun playing at....

#1 The Dyck Course (although it's not finished and we're changing it all the time, how could I pass up living and playing the best sport in the world on the farm where I grew up. I hope you all get a chance to play it during the next year. You all are welcome anytime just call first to make sure I'm here.) 620-345-2345

#2 Norton (my best friend lives there, I have the course record there, get rid of the rodeo, car races, gazeebo, ball diamonds, skate park and the county fair and it's the most desirable course for me in the state)

#3 Hutchinson (my mom lives in Hutch so I rarely pass up the chance to play there, it is my birth course where I first learned to play, I helped to design the newest nine holes)

#4 Newton (great layout and design, would love to play it every day for a year to see how good I could get on it)

#5 Dodge City (the only course where I can beat Smitty!!!)

top 5 courses in kansas

Postby stauf » Mon Sep 20, 2004 4:03 pm

i haven't played hays, but obviously it's a favorite of a lot of players.

my favorite course is camp hawk outside newton, not only is every hole birdieable, but every hole is a possible double or triple bogey. it's an 24 hole oasis of discgolf in the middle of kansas.

2. the rock in salina(temp)

3. emporia

4. across the river course in winfield(temp)

5.oak park in wichita
