​​​​​​​​​Golf is our passion!

The mission of the Wichita Public Golf Courses is to increase awareness of golf in our community and in particular the youth. It is our belief that the younger generations are the key to golf lasting through the ages. With that in mind, we offer a variety of lessons and programs for younger players.

Wichita Public Golf Courses is an Enterprise Fund, which is self-supporting and does not receive tax dollars from the general fund. The Golf Division utilizes advertising as a way to continue to remain self-funded. Learn more about advertising your business​ at the Wichita Public Golf Courses.
