In 2009, Golf Digest readers chose Falcon Ridge as the 17th-best public course in the United States. Recognized time and again on a national level, Falcon Ridge's course is a trip through the rippling hills of western Lenexa. Pristine manicured Zoysia tees are at the start every hole, which lead to terrain that challenges every aspect of a player's game. It's not all about bogies and birdies, though—the course has frequent elevation changes where you can get gorgeous views that are worth the trip alone. Away from the fairways, golfers can even take some swings at Falcon Ridge's 25-station driving range or two-tiered putting area.

Deer Creek Golf Club’s experienced staff, plush facilities, and picturesque championship course create an enjoyably mummy-free outdoor experience for golfers of any handicap. After calling to reserve a tee time, ball-banging golf-cart gurus can wreak polite and well-dressed havoc while carefully soft-spiking across all 18 of Deer Creek Golf Club’s holes, which have been designed to test the skills of experienced club-wielders while still giving beginners an exciting, accessible playing field. An included cart rental lets you easily navigate the course’s 6,811 yards of beautiful rolling hillocks, winding waterways, and tree-friendly areas while providing a means of escape from herds of disgruntled deer statues.
