Ellsworth Municipal Golf Course

category : Golf Courses
Ellsworth Municipal Golf Course Ellsworth is fortunate to boast one of the finest nine-hole golf courses in Central Kansas. Watered fairways and greens amongst the rolling hills make for an enjoyable and professional game. Elevated greens on nearly every hole make proper club selection a priority.

Even the golf course cannot escape Ellsworth's rich history of settling the West. Reminders of the mid-1800s are still present. Remnants of buffalo wallows can be found in the fairway just in front of the par five sixth hole. Behind the men's seven tee box, it is believed to be the final resting site of Indian Annie, Wild Bill Hickock's common-law wife. Wagon ruts, probably from the old Butterfield Overland Despatch route, are visible in front of the tee box on the eighth hole.

A driving range is located adjacent to the course on the northeast side. Access to the clubhouse from the west is made from Second Stret on the K-156 overpass, or from the north on Evans Street.

Hours: Open Monday-Friday, 9am to 8 pm; Saturday and Sunday 8am to 8pm.
Address: Located east of US 156 next to St. Francis Boy's Home
Phone: 785-472-4236
