Some of the best golf in Kansas can be played on your way through the state. Many golfers traveling west will take Interstate 70 to get there, but what they might not realize is that there are many golf courses worth playing off the highway. Golfers can break up their trip with a stop at Smoky Hill Country Club in Hays.

About the Course

Smoky Hill Country Club presents an 18-hole golf course with over 370 active golfing and social members. Smoky Hill offers a very challenging tree-lined course with several bodies of water that golfers need to negotiate their shots over.

Hole 13 is arguably the most challenging par 5 in the western half of the state; the distance totals 531 yards. Golfers will need to hit a nice tee shot in order to have a good look at carrying the water for their next shot. With an elevated green this hole is very tough to make a birdie.

With the progressive thinking members who belong to the club, Smoky Hill is constantly looking for ways to improve their experience from the dining room, swimming pool amenities, and golf course improvements.

Along with their active membership, Smoky Hill has recently hosted the 2021 Kansas Junior Amateur and the 2020 Tee Fore Two Championship. CLG enjoys hosting events at Smoky Hill because of the high-quality venue and vibrant community.

“The Junior Amateur at Smoky Hill Country Club was a great experience for players, parents, and staff. Kirby and his team went above and beyond to provide a prestigious atmosphere and top notch golf course for our biggest junior championship of the year.”

– Taylor Albritton, CLG Director of Junior Golf
