Designed by well-known Kansas City golf architect Craig Schreiner, the award-winning Prairie Highlands is a par 72, 7,100-yard golf course features pristine zoysia fairways and bent grass greens and 60 strategically placed sand bunkers. The public Prairie Highlands also features a full driving range, chipping area and a putting green.
This 18-hole golf course tries its best to bring the country that invented the game to the Midwest. The course is rustic, yet challenging and because of the winds on the prairie, some shots require dexterity to stay out of the bunker. The staff and owners are some of the best on this side of the Kansas-Missouri border and since it's a public course, the rates are much better than a private one, in fact it is one of the highest rated in the state.
Heritage Golf course is handicapped-accessible, and a golf shop, lessons, club/cart rentals, and a driving range are available.
This golf club offers 18 holes, restaurant, golf shop, club/cart rental, lessons available, and a fantastic driving range.
Here at the Old World Balloonery, guests traverse the Midwest skies with the aid of hot air molecules colliding rapidly inside of a balloon. The flights are at morning and at dusk because they say the winds are much calmer during these periods. Nonetheless, the price is 200USD per person and if you want to take your date, the company also offers 'Sweetheart Rides' upon request. Excursions last anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour; call or check website for reservations and other package options.
Deanna Rose was the name of a local police officer killed in the line-of-duty, and it is also the name given to this historic replica of a 19th century farmstead located in nearby Overland Park. On the farm, children can go on pony rides, feed baby goats, fish in the pond and even learn how to milk a cow. However, the objective of this farm is to promote interactivity with not just farm animals, but also birds of prey, reptiles as well as learn about horticulture. There are also several gardens, a playground, crafts, a nature trail and horse drawn carriage rides. Admission is free Monday through Thursday, however there is a nominal 2USD charge on the weekends.
