Despite its flat landscape, golf course architects can make some beautiful rolling hills in Kansas golf courses. One such example is in Hutchinson, in the North Central region, where the Carey Park Golf Course offers up 18 challenging holes. In the south central region, Wichita has almost a dozen legitimate options, including the Sierra Hills Golf Club and the Willowbend Golf Club. Dodge City in the western part of the state has two strong public courses in the Dodge City Country Club and the Mariah Hills Golf Course.
No matter where the yellow brick road of your Kansas golf trip takes you, always keep in mind that, when playing rolling hills, mis-hit shots may go astray giving you a variety of gently sloping lies. On a hilly lie, choke down on your club an inch or two, and remind yourself to take a full swing. Uphill shots tend to go left, while downhill shots tend to go right, so adjust accordingly. When scheduling your Kansas tee times, be sure you are aware of the course conditions so you do not incorrectly assume the course is overly flat - undulation can be tricky.
