"Shadow Glen flows gracefully along rocky ridges and through tree-lined valleys...some of the finest golfing ground in the entire Midwest. There's not a single harsh feature at Shadow Glen. (It has) the most varied and interesting set of green side challenges this side of a classic Donald Ross layout," said Golf Digest when it named the club Best New Private Course in America in 1990. It was also included in the Golf Digest “America's Greatest 100" courses in 1995-96. Shadow Glen has been ranked in the Top 5 Kansas courses every year since its opening and in Golf Digest's March 2000 issue, Hole #13 was chosen as one of America's best 18 holes.

Reserved starting times are not used nor necessary at Shadow Glen. Golf memberships have been limited so that members may begin play whenever they choose on most occasions. In this regard, Shadow Glen is a refreshing change from other area clubs. The members will attest to other not-so-obvious attractions, such as the social interaction, excellent food and entertainment, and unlimited opportunities to forge new and lasting friendships with others of like interest.
