Course has character. Very short but you have to manage your misses or an out of bounds drive or short side miss can add a few stroke to your round real fast. Is a fun lay out but i wouldn't recommend for a golfer that plans to walk.

I've played this course a lot over the years but haven't in around a year. I was in town recently and played it. They did an amazing job renovating all 9 greens on the front 9. They are now built with more complexities making them more challenging and visually appealing. They also have better irrigation to make sure they stay in better shape which already looks to be working great. the front 9 fairways were in good shape, I wish there was some more difficulties on the front 9. They have added bunkers which have helped but still a little easy. Overall the front 9 is much better then it was before, great job. The back 9 has always been In great shape and much more challenging. I've always liked this side more, but the front 9 is much closer now. The two 9's play a conllon rely different layout and style which helps mix up the course which is enjoyable. The staff is very friendly and the overall xourse and clubhouse were in good shape. They do need new ball washers though. Overall I was please with it and the course is worth the money for now 18 solid jokes of golf. I look forward to coming back and hope to see the continual upgrades.

Just didn't like the layout....Too easy to hit into groups coming the other way. Some of the holes were difficult to find. Not enough directions from one hole to the next. Very hard to discern the greens from the fairway. Short 5 ft high flags...very hard to see from the fairway. One and done for me. Won't play again!

If you like a challenging golf course and you like trains, then Prairie Trails is an ideal golf course for you.

The course is in great shape with the rains this year and offers many challenging holes. You will usually be hitting the ball at an uphill or downhill green and on a dogleg.

If you like trains, there is one about every ten or twenty minutes that you can see from about anywhere on the golf course.

Dave and his staff are there for your enjoyment and will get you on the course quickly and efficiently.

The front 9 was nice, but short and the greens were rugged at best. Back 9 was immaculate longer and pristine. Should very been priced at about 25 bucks with the shape the front 9 was in.

I last played this course a couple of years ago and wasn't at all impressed with the front nine. The front, which is the original course and about half a century older than the back, was not in great shape wasn't much fun to play.

After a couple of years, however, they've brought that nine up to par with the back to make a complete 18 hole experience that is much better than before.

A couple of greens were a little rough but they were running a consistent speed.

Overall, unless you are getting a good discount on Golfnow (we were) it might not be worth passing up other area courses (I'd rank Sand Creek and Hesston ahead of it, and probably Quail Ridge as well, though I haven't played there in years so can't attest to it's current state.) It is a nice change of pace and, with the improved conditions, somewhere I'll be heading back to as long as I can find good deals on tee times.

One more note: Despite incredible weather, the course wasn't busy at all and had a great rate of play. Although we had booked 18 holes we were really only expecting to get in 9-12 due to only having less than three hours to play, but we got through 15 holes in that time.

All the front nine greens, including #10 were in nearly unplayable condition. All the greens, with the exception of a few on the back nine (newer addition) were tiny with too much elevation to hold a good shot. Flag sticks were all 4' tall with tiny flags making it very difficult to spot from the fairways. Overall I would not recommend this course to anyone except maybe beginners.
