Ranked #29 in the Nation in the "Top 50 under $50" Category, Prairie Highlands is a diamond in the rough. On a normal day, expect to fight strong breezes throughout, demanding a two, and sometimes three-club swing. Designed by well-known Kansas City golf architect Craig Schreiner and owned by Kansas City native David Francis, Prairie Highlands opened in May of 2001 and has been reaping honors ever since. It has also been ranked No. 3 among the state's best public courses by both Golf Week and Golf Magazine and was the only Kansas City course in either Kansas or Missouri to be ranked. Prairie Highlands is in harmony with the rolling landscape, skirted by prairie, on the western edge of Olathe, Kansas. Ron Whitten, Golf Digest's Senior Golf Architecture Editor, has recognized the course, whose name evolved from 182-acre plot of native grasses, as "What Affordable Golf Should Be" in the September 2001 issue of Golf Digest.
