Fox Ridge -- If your in Kansas and play golf you should play Fox Ridge
Review by: Dave Thompson This is a mature (100 yrs +) 9 hole course that is well maintained. It provides challenge with its water hazards, bunkers, some elevation changes, several dogleg fairways and lots and lots of trees. It is fun for both the beginning golfer and the experienced. Once you play it you will go back. With green fees well under those in the Wichita metropolitan area it is also a great value, especially for seniors.

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.
