Teeing off: Osage City golf course open to all

By Richard Burkdoll
Osage City Golf Course President

The question I get asked most is how is the golf course since Greatlife took over. The answer is the golf course is in great shape and is still Osage City Golf Course! Greatlife doesn’t run your golf course. A board of directors elected by the members of the golf course has run the course for many years. Elections are held each year in October for six of the members. The other three members come from each of the clubs – men’s, women’s, and couples.

The city of Osage City has always owned the course. Originally it was a semi-private course. The course is public, open for anyone to play, and has been for years. The agreement the city has with Greatlife allows Greatlife’s members to play here and our members to play any of their courses for free or for a reduced cost.

Please, come out and enjoy your course. Men’s club is every Wednesday starting at 5:30 p.m. Women’s club is every Tuesday starting at 5:45 p.m. Couple’s club plays most Sundays starting at 5 p.m.  You don’t have to be a member of the course to play with these clubs.

There will be a night golf tournament on June 15, weather permitting. Tee off is at 9 p.m. The format is a four-person scramble. You can bring a team or come out and we will add you to a team. We have new glow in the dark balls and stuff to light up the course. The only extra thing you need is a good flashlight.

For more information about the upcoming night tournament or the Osage City Golf Course, call 785-528-3329, or stop by at 1401 S. Fourth St., Osage City, Kan.
