I live really close to Sims, its my favorite.
have you played all of them?
Never played Clapp but have the rest.  Im admittedly biased towards my home course.  Auburn Hills is the nicest outright, but Sims is less busy and i don't spend all day looking for balls (im a bad golfer)

Sim is also the easiest, not that that's a bad thing. Good learner course for sure. Played MacDonald the most. Not in the Wichita Public Courses but is still public is WSU's Braeburn, which while isn't the nicest, is still decently nice and a fun course and I've probably had some of my best shots and holes ever at that course.

Which public golf courses are the best? I qualify for the 18-23 season pass, so I will only have to pay $150, which is FREAKING AWESOME.

This link let's you see the packages for public golf course season passes.
http://www.golfwichita.com/Pages/SeasonPasses.aspx

They're all great. Auburn Hills and MacDonald are the hardest, MacDonald is a bitch and I can't figure out why. I played Tex Consolver and Clapp the most because they are the easiest courses and the least busy although Consolver does a lot of tournaments.  I shot my best score at Clapp. Sim is the best course, Auburn is nice but overrated, but it's crazy busy and if you have a slice its likely you'll either break a window or kill someone on 1 and 2.

The golfing in Wichita is unbelievable and no city of similar size or most bigger can match it. Even though Wichita has recently lost two very accessible courses in Echo Hills and Braeburn, there are other great courses in the area like Sierra Hills in far West Wichita; its an executive course that I played with my wife. Cherry Oaks in Cheney, and there are two amazing courses in Winfield. Wellington Golf Club and Pine Bay in south Wichita are quaint, they frequently have groupons. Pine Bay also has an island green. I miss golfing in Wichita and I now live across the street from a course.


Anyone know what WSU is doing with the land Braeburn sat on? :cry: I took a golf class at WSU and got to play the course for $10 a round.

Seriously? That seems like a lot of land for that, is the state of Kansas selling the land?

Tey are keeping 9 holes and the range for the golf team, so they can still have a home course... who knows, maybe they'll open it back up as a 9-hole course someday.

I know, but I liked trying to have MIR picture all of Airbus squatting on a golf course for a second.

I'm hoping I can move my flight back a day as a meeting got canceled, but as it is I fly in really late next Wednesday night, could probably do lunch or happy hour Thursday, Thursday dinnerPAK, and Saturday lunchPAK.  Plan things that don't suck accordingly.

I also need to go to go to a few Dillon's stores to get all the sweet tea mios I can find.

How much do you want?  I can pre-purchase some so you don't have to waste good drinking time in that hell hole.

Don't sweat it.  I just did some more checking and if I don't get to them myself while I'm there I can order a gang of them from walmart at a decent price and get them shipped free.  http://www.walmart.com/ip/Mio-Sweet-Tea-Liquid-Water-Enhancer-1.62-oz/15939961
