Pros: Advanced players looking for something more meaty than a city park course will like Camp Hawk, even though some of the holes are short. Decently challenging without being overwhelming (newbs might want to skip the water holes). Has a nice balance of wooded and open with some moderate elevation. Flow is fairly logical. Accuracy is key, esspecially on holes near the creek is. Great for winter time play when the foliage on the trees in down and the creek and ponds are hopefully frozen. With 24 holes, players not wanting to risk losing discs in the ponds can still get a full 18 in by playing holes 4-21 (you still have to deal with the creek). Hole 4's tee right by the parking lot. Grooved concrete tees help prevent slippage. Hole 7 is one of the area's best.
Cons: Some of the downsides of a rustic looking country course, namely lack of maintainence at times. They do mow here, but depending on when you show up, it can get a bit wooly in spots. Lack of tee signs with distances. A few bridges over the creek in disrepair. Some of the holes towards the middle of the course (holes 9-11) can get spongy after a hard rain as can the road getting out there. Baskets can be hard to see on some holes, so walking a hole before you playing it would be advised..
Other Thoughts: They originally had some nice deluxe tee signs here, but those fell into disrepair. Only about one of these is left. Most of the holes now have an old tree branch segment painted orange with the hole number in black. A nice hidden gem just a couple miles off I-135.

Pros: Good variety of shots and land. Has a dry creek bed, ponds, tight holes and wide open. 24 holes. Cement tees. Several 'peninsula' type water shots at the end!
Cons: Some tee signs broken or missing, yet all marked with #'s. Some thick rough on a few holes, with ivy. Grass wasn't all freshly mowed.
Other Thoughts: Definitely worth playing along with Hutchinson, Salina courses nearby.
