Great Topic Cooper, As a beginner I can go to rosedale and hit a 59-60 and a week later get a freaking 72(non-windy day). PC front 9 is great for beginners than gets more challenging towards the end. WW well that place just kicks my butt as soon as I get out of the car, but its fun to challenge myself every once in a while. But on the other hand ya more challenging courses would be great but we do have a hard time getting people out to some of the courses now to help police up trash etc...Smp is fun for beginners as well thats the place I learned alot on my up-slope drives

I would very much love to see a highly technical additional course in SMP, however I feel that getting more small beginner friendly courses should be the clubs main focus.  I love the technical courses but there is no way to get my fiance out to those  courses.  I have used Rosedale down under to introduce beginners to the game for years.  I know I have seen lot of new players get discouraged when they play their first round and they consistently have to throw 6 time to get to the hole their host gets to in one or two.  In my experience I also know most new players don't want to be seen teeing off the short tee as it has the stigma of the ladies tee in golf.  I really saw this problem when I took a group from work for their first game to Prairie Center shortly after the recent course updates.  I really do want to see a new A tier course at SMP and it hurts writing this but if I do not believe we should make any existing courses harder until we are able to populate the city with more short beginner level courses.  I know of some people that I could get out to a 9 hole confidence building course that are scared to go out to the existing courses.

There is a sweet little nine holer at a school in Blue Valley off 164th and Antioch I think....?

It would be a really good introductory course for newbys.

The new stuff at PC is gradually softening up around the edges as well. Also, it's very easy to play 1-10, then 17 and 18 at PC, which keeps you from having to deal with holes that players like Hemme, Tank, and Emac appreciate most.
It is actually a 18 hole course if you are talking about Blue Valley West High School.and yes 164th and Antioch It is a grest Beginers course as this is where I learned alot. nothing is over 248-260ft with some minor challenging holes. When I first started i used drivers, now I seem to be leaving them in the bag and using mid-ranges
