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.

Salina Municipal Golf Course -- Long course in the wind
Review by: Mitch Knipp When the wind blows, you better bring your "A" game. This course is designed to be played with a south wind. However, when you get a north wind, some of the toughest par 4 get even tougher. Not a tight course and you won't lose any balls, but it is a fair test of golf. The course is ususally busy so you need to get a tee time in advance. They could also use a marshall on weekends to keep play moving. Nice course, great staff, lots of fun.
