Roots of Excellence: Carey Park Golf Course’s Rich History
In 1932, Carey Park Golf Course emerged as a testament to vision and dedication, founded by Hutchinson’s salt magnate, Emerson Carey, and renowned architect Ralph McCarroll. Nestled in the thriving salt town of Hutchinson, KS, this course has been a cherished part of the community, long before the city park was established on the picturesque south bank of the Arkansas River.
With a par of 71 and stretching over 6,629 yards, this 18-hole masterpiece has recently undergone an impressive transformation. The renovations, carefully unfolding in phases, have brought new life to the fairways, installed state-of-the-art irrigation systems, revamped tee boxes, and introduced fresh greens. As one of Kansas’s premier municipal facilities, Carey Park sets a standard for the future, infusing the course with an exciting and modern energy while honoring its classic design.
Over time, Carey Park Golf Course has evolved into a coveted destination for golfers across the state. It proudly hosts two of the region’s largest high school golf tournaments, along with events for small colleges and local enthusiasts.
