Ranked #29 in the Nation in the “Top 50 under $50” Category, Prairie Highlands is a diamond in the rough. On a normal day, expect to fight strong breezes throughout, demanding a two, and sometimes three-club swing. Designed by well-known Kansas City golf architect Craig Schreiner and owned by Kansas City native David Francis, Prairie Highlands opened in May of 2001 and has been reaping honors ever since. It has also been ranked No. 3 among the state’s best public courses by both Golf Week and Golf Magazine and was the only Kansas City course in either Kansas or Missouri to be ranked.
Consistently on Golf Digest’s top five “best places to play” list, it’s rumored to be high on the list with Colbert Hills and Buffalo Dunes for No. 1 in 2005 after being No. 3 with a four-star ranking in 2004. Host to 2004’s Kansas City Cup Finals, Prairie Highlands also hosted the 2004-2006 Men's NAIA National Championship.
