In the 1920s, Rolling Hills Country Club began its storied legacy as the Westlink Golf Course.

By 1948, the rolling terrain and beautifully winding streams that had become synonymous with challenging golf in Wichita had a new name: Rolling Hills Country Club. Eighty-four founding families recognized the site's potential, and purchased the course, along with its considerable amenities.
Soon after, Rolling Hills' own rich history became a foundation for women’s golf. Many top female players of the day competed in the 1950 Women’s U.S. Open hosted by RHCC. The LPGA was founded during this tournament, in the very clubhouse our members use today. But history is only one side of our story. Progress is the other.
Rolling Hills' famed course underwent a major redesign by Floyd Farley in 1963, resulting in the rerouting of all original holes. The mid-90s saw a number of improvements and innovations at RHCC, including the installation of a new irrigation system in 1995 and Zoysia grass fairways in 1996. The club has enjoyed an ongoing beautification program throughout the decades, with new flowerbeds continually added around the course to enhance golfers’ enjoyment.
We are constantly at work, improving all facets of our country club. We realize that our members deserve all that we can give them at a great value and with a touch of personal attention.
