Valley Point Golf Course is an executive-style 9-hole golf course with a driving range and putting green. This non-traditional course can be enjoyed by golfers of all abilities, from beginners to seasoned and serious players.
The expertly designed course has a mixture of golf holes that range from open, prairie-style holes to challenging woodland holes. The three finishing holes play around a lake that can be both scenic and punishing. Three sets of tees offer golfers a range of options, and with a variety of hole lengths, the course is designed so that golfers are able to use every club in their bags.
The use of Native Kansas grasses, along with artificial greens, make Valley Point Golf Course one of the most ecologically sensitive golf courses ever constructed. Less water, pesticide and herbicide usage means happier and more abundant wildlife, which also translates into happier golfers.
A Taylor-Made course
From the outset, Valley Point Golf Course was “Taylor Made.” The course was designed by Taylor Zimbelman, who has built more than 70 golf courses in 20 different countries. Zimbelman is an associate member of the American Society of Golf Course Architects. And, because Zimbelman was born and raised in nearby Wichita, Kansas, he understands the nuances of Kansas play, from the ever-present wind to the ecological resources that golf courses work to preserve. Zimbelman continues to live with his family in Wichita and remains a committed partner in the success of Valley Point Golf Course.

There are many things that make Valley Point Golf Course unique, including the Tour Greens synthetic grass system that offer a tour-quality playing experience that remains consistent week after week—without the maintenance downtime that is typical of natural grass greens.
To ensure proper grooming of the greens, the expert staff at Valley Point Golf Course uses a Redexim Base-Rake to gently lift the greens and level the playing field. Through this meticulous grooming process, Valley Point Golf Course maintains its ability to be open throughout the year, a true benefit for enthusiasts.
Although the initial intent of Valley Point Golf Course was to be a nice walkable course to help promote exercise and fitness, the Valley Center Recreation Commission recognized that there would be golfers that could not walk the 1.2 mile course without some type of assistance.
In 2016 the Valley Center Recreation Commission approved & constructed asphalt cart areas around the tree boxes and greens to facilitate the use of regular golf carts on the course. The Board also approved the use of privately owned golf carts on the course, once the owners have paid their "trail fee." See Rates page for daily or annual fees. Download the full ordinance here.
Valley Point Golf Course was designed as a walking course for many reasons. Not only does walking the course promote fitness and exercise, but human-powered mobility encourages less disruption of surrounding wildlife — and greater opportunities for quiet observation. However, Valley Point Golf Course also recognizes the importance of being accessible to those who have a passion for the sport. To that end, Valley Point Golf Course offers the rental of seven regular golf carts or pull carts.
