The Great Green

Sycamore Ridge Golf Club has a national reputation as a high quality golf course. Golf Digest, Zagat and Golf Magazine have all praised the course. People travel across the Midwest to play 18 holes of superb lush bentgrass in a quiet rural setting. The staff consists of seasoned professional, many of which have received a PGA certification. The pristine green features dunes, chasms, wooded hills and creeks, creating a varied course that is enough to challenge the pros.

The Osawatomie Golf Course offers two distinct sets of nines that provide players a well-rounded game. Anyone who is looking to get some practice in beforehand can stop by one of their 10 hitting stations. Golfers can also cap off a long game with a drink and a bite to eat at the course’s bar and grill.

Built in 1923, the Paola Country Club has continued to update and maintain to keep up with high quality and high standards expected by golfers. For those who don’t feel like golf is their game, they can stop by the clubhouse restaurant for lunch or dinner in the dining room overlooking the course.

Making Waves

KC Watersports is one of only a handful of wakeboarding and watersports facilities in the United States. Its inflatables aqua park and movie nights on the water are a fun introduction to the lake, but KC Watersports is most passionate about teaching the art of wakeboarding. Staff members are happy to guide beginners through summer day camps and private lessons, or those who are a little more experienced, they can go ahead and hit the rails, ramps and sliders. Their new event space provides a year round sheltered option for group gatherings.
