Featured Golf Course Review:
Colby Country Club -- Buffalo chip
Review by: David Sutton The Colby Country Club is a fairly open course with some really good holes. Hole #6 is my favorite hole, a good tee shot can put you on the green if you can get off the tee box. But there is some risk involved in going for the green, a row of trees to hit over in a creek bed below the tee box, out-of-bounds stakes the whole way up to the green and behind it, a grass trap in front of the green, and a row of trees that covers up most of the left side of the rough. Both par 3's can be difficult, but that has a lot to do with some really challenging greens. It is pretty hard to get the ball to stop on these saucer like greens. If you don't hit to the middle of the green on a lot of these holes you may find yourself off the short stuff. The more I play this course the shorter I hit my approaches. I think it is almost easier to hit in front of or the front edge of the green and let the ball roll. The greens on this course are pretty tricky if you don't have much experience with them.

Milburn Country Club -- Best Course in KC
Review by: BH3 With long narrow tree lined fairways, Milburn is a true test of golf. From the back tees, players are forced to hit their Drivers on nearly every hole. Many in-city clubs in KC allow golfers to bunt 2-irons off every tee to lay up so they have wedges in, but Milburn forces golfers to hit driver and a mid to long iron into each green. The course does allow you to recover from errant shots by making nice up and ins. The greens are large and undulating and if you have a single digit handicap here you will travel well to other clubs in the area. Milburn has put in new cart paths and they have a lot of work in the plans to improve the club.
