Sand Creek Station Golf Course – Newton, Kansas

Sand Creek Station

We used to live in Wichita, Kansas, so I keep up with all the happenings out there.

This beautiful golf course, Sand Creek Station, makes me want to take a trip out there to play a round … or three.

Golf Magazine named it one of the Top 10 New Courses You Can Play.

From their website:

” Sand Creek Station’s unique links-style design features plenty of mounding encompassing the bent grass fairways and undulated greens uncharacteristic of the courses in the area. The sanctity of the railroad has been preserved surrounding the golf course to remind players of the history of the area. Many holes are, as they say in Scotland, “hard by the cinders,” continuing a century’s old tradition of golf bordering railways. Come challenge number ten, better known as “The Beast,” the longest hole in the state of Kansas! Sand Creek Station Golf Course was voted by GOLF Magazine as a “Top 10 New Courses You Can Play” for 2006. We were also voted second best course you can play in the state of Kansas by Golf Week Magazine. Come see what other similarities you can identify between Sand Creek Station and other famous golf courses in the birthplace of this great game, Scotland. “

I’m not likely to make it out there in 2007, unless I slip out there late in the fall, so if anyone can send us some info, a review or photos, feel free to leave a comment and we’ll go from there.
