Golf enthusiasts can choose from 21 public/private courses located in and around the city offering challenging levels of play for every golfer. Some of the older ones offer lovely, mature trees and lush growth, while the newer blend in with the wide, open spaces of the Kansas landscape.
Due to the overwhelming response from golfers in the Wichita community, the City of Wichita has reviewed the practices of other golf courses across the nation to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to their staff and guests. At this time, Auburn Hills Golf Course and MacDonald Golf Course will re-open on Tuesday, April 14.

Pro Golf Tips
Golf professionals all agree: If you do not keep your balance during the entire swing, it is not possible to have a good stroke. It sounds simple to keep your balance, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, it is impossible to have good balance when you are so tense that you are “white knuckling” the club, your entire body is stiff, and you are trying to hit the ball too hard.
When you are just starting to play golf, you are frequently warned to not hit the ball too hard. Energy that is focused will make the ball go much further than a hard swing that does not make contact with the ball at the club’s center. When you are well balanced, you are more free to hit the ball correctly.
Keep your head still, with your eyes focused on the ball. The more still your head is, the better you will be able to see the ball. This helps to create the foundation for you to keep your balance. Any movement or distraction that hinders your balance will make it impossible to focus on the ball. It is imperative that you keep your head perfectly still and do not move it during your swing.
If you want to keep your balance, you need to relax your body and muscles. If you don’t relax, then your head is going to move.
Keeping your balance is necessary for you to enjoy a great game of golf. It will take time for you to see definite improvement, so be patient. Concentrate on keeping your balance and your head in one place and in no time you will be enjoying an excellent golf game that your friends will be envious of!
