Played here because Golf Digest had it ranked as the #2 public course in the state, and I thought it was a fun track. The fairway grass is a little different (zoysia, I think), so it's maybe not as green as other courses but I thought it played just fine as I didn't have any bad lies. I especially enjoyed the holes that didn't have any homes built on them, although I'm guessing they will all soon be overrun by homes. Overall, conditions were good, and worth the #2 ranking.

I am not sure what the "3 star" gentlemen was talking about. I was living in Manhattan attending KSU when the course opened. I love it as much now as I did then. The course wss in prestine condition. The fairways wete well kept and manicured. The greens roll true and were as quick as those at Augusta National. The nee Golf Carts are ultra comfortable. The GPS sytem is second to none. I absolutely love the drome flyover and Pro Tip options on the screen at evey hole. I now live in the DC Metro amd have been blessed enough to play the PGA coursrs in the area and abroad.. Colbert Hills is easily on par with them. I bring my friends to Kansas to play it and they cannot wait to return each time!!!!

Disappointed with the declining course conditions. This golf course is an awesome tract and enjoyable to play but some type of chunky spreading grass is taking away from what used to be my favorite course. The Fint Hills scenery is still around but is being replaced by houses and condos with construction continuing. Not being busy lunch at the turn was mediocre taking 49 minutes. Golf cart condition was poor continuing to pull left with poor jumpy acceleration and braking. Such a nice place in a decline is sad to see. Our group will be in no hurry to return.

They don't take as good of care as they do on their big course but it is great to take the kids out to to work on short game and teach them the game we love!
