Description

The reputation of Colbert Hills as that really big course out in Kansas is attracting players from across the country that want to test their skills against one of the nation's toughest courses.
Although our course is less than three years old, there's a fantastic story to tell about how it came to be built in the first place.

The dream of Colbert Hills goes back to 1994 when Jim Colbert, an alumnus of Kansas State, got involved with a project to help the school build a university-run course, a place where the Kansas State golf team could train and where the school could train golf course superintendents and managers and do research on turfgrass. The university's vision and that of Jim Colbert was that the project would also be a public daily fee course and one where disadvantaged children could learn the game of golf.

Colbert found the perfect site, 300 acres in the Flint Hills area on the northwest edge of Manhattan. An alumnus was grazing cattle on this site donated the property, and Colbert donated a half million dollars. Soon other donors signed on. Jim Colbert combined with well-known Dallas architect Jeffrey Brauer to lay out the $11 million course.

God built about 14 of the holes, and we built about four of them. I hope you can't tell the difference. -- Jim Colbert, PGA Tour star and co-designer of Colbert Hills

Colbert Hills opened officially in May 2000 with a bevy of golfing celebs on hand, including Lee Trevino, Raymond Floyd and Annika Sorenstam, who played in a Founders Pro-Am. What an unbelievable effort to attract the commitment and bring all these people together, said PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem at the dedication.
