Hidden country gem you'll likely have to yourself
Pros: At almost 7000', Wolf Creek is very challenging despite its open terrain. Located is a US Army Corps park on the east side of Pomona Lake, it is mostly mowed in a "links" style with unmowed, sometimes tall grass warning you on either side of the fairway (holes 9-12 are the exceptions and are mowed park style). I can't state what the degree of maintainence is all year here, but I've been here once in the summer and once in the winter and both times the course was in good shape. Combined with the links fairways, the elevation is used well here on the uphill and downhill holes where your depth perception can be thrown off. Probably my favorite hole was #8 with a narrow fairway with an evergreen tree right in the middle. The dogleg on #4 is cool too which will provide righties with a challenge on how exactly to cut it.
Cons: Will provide for a frustrating round if you're not a sharpshooter. Prepare to look for a few errant throws into the "rough" here (some of which was rougher than other parts). I would in fact suggest only throwing disc colors that contrast well against the grass. While I like the links fairways, I think they could be mowed a bit more generously. Hole #6 esspecially which according to the course map is supposed to have a tree in the fairway like #8. One danger spot on Hole #5 where a children's play area and campground are kind of in the line of fire. The fairway suggesting you lean in that direction doesn't help. 17 and 18 feel sort of redundant as they play a lot like 1 and 2.
Other Thoughts: Kind of in an isolated area, so like me, you may quite possibly have this beauty to yourself, but its well worth the detour if you're passing through Kansas on I-35 or I-70. It won't be a walk in the park, so bring plenty of water, and maybe some bug spray. A buddy to spot would be well advised too.
