Locally owned 9 hole golf course with adjoining practice range. Not intimidating for beginners, but difficult enough to be challenging for experienced golfers. Families welcome. Night golf scheduled periodically. Limited RV hookups available.
WOW! April 20, 2019, had to be the most beautiful day this year. Bright sun, mild temperature, occasional "floaty" clouds and very little wind. Could not wish for a better day to hit the golf course. Tomorrow is Easter and we will be open - after you eat that humongus meal, come on out for a game or two!

[03/21/19] FINALLY! We are open for play. Come on out & play a round of golf
[11/29/18] There may not be a lot of good golf days (of course, there is never a BAD golf day) this winter, but this is definitely a GOOD one. Come on out & play 9 or more!
Would you believe that November 17 would be a PERFECT golf day? Well, maybe it is time to read this post and head out to The Eccentric Duffer for a round or two....or more.
golf.com A new study says that golf's benefits extend beyond heart heath, and into the mental game. So if you haven't been sure about whether or not going out and playing a round is good for your health, have no fear!
[10/07/18] East Central students - don't forget --- green fees are 1/2 price on Wednesdays.
[10/07/18] More rain! We NEVER turn down rain, but do wish it could be spread out some. The course if SOPPING wet. Now we need a little sun and breeze - gads! This is a strange October.
[09/02/18] Note to ALL GOLFERS! We will open at 8:00 a.m. on LABOR DAY!
[08/25/18] It has definitely been a struggle to try to catch up with the mowing after 4" rain, but with our two highschool senior summer (and now after school) helpers (Laramie & Riley), we're almost there. The greens are in good shape, the fairways have all been mowed and the only areas that are still a little high are rough and out of play areas (oh yes, and OUR yard!!). And, wonder of all wonders, everything is GREEN in August. Temps are cooperating and the slight breeze is delightful. You can't beat our green fees and we do have a limited number of electric carts. We open at 8:00 a.m. or a 'tat later if the dew is HEAVY, so come on out and get in 9 or 18.
ALERT! The Eccentric Duffer Golf Course & Range has gotten a facelift. Not only that, it is shaved regularly.
Come see what we have done. You'll be surprised.
A little humor & good sense!!!

THERE ARE TWO THINGS YOU CAN DO WITH YOUR HEAD DOWN -- PLAY GOLF AND PRAY - Lee Trevino
A LITTLE GIRL WAS AT HER FIRST GOLF LESSON WHEN SHE ASKED AN INTERESTING QUESTION: "IS THE WORD SPELLED P-U-T OR P-U-T-T ?" SHE ASKED THE INSTRUCTOR. "P-U-T-T IS CORRECT," HE REPLIED. "PUT MEANS TO PLACE A THING WHERE YOU WANT IT. PUTT MEANS MERELY A VAIN ATTEMPT TO DO THE SAME THING."
HE SAID HE WANTED TO GET MORE DISTANCE. I TOLD HIM TO HIT IT AND RUN BACKWARDS -- Ken Venturi
THE ONLY THING IN MY BAG THAT WORKS IS THE BUG SPRAY -- Bruce Lansky

1. KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN.

[08/03/17] What absolutely gorgeous weather for golf!!! Not too hot, definitely NOT COLD, just a breeze (no 40 mph wind today) and the course looks great. Greens mowed and ready for that ball to really roll. Come see us.
Playing golf w a 2 1/2 year old!

[06/26/17] Okay locals - that yearly rumor has started again --- that we are closed and not in business anymore. Please pass the word - WE ARE OPEN!!!!! The course is in great shape and the range is available. Come see us.

[01/29/17] We do have pretty golf days in January and February (not a lot, but we do have them!). If the sun is shining, the temperature is above 45°, and the wind is less than 35 mph (LOL), give us a call. More than likely we're open and the greens are in good winter condition.
[10/20/16] Wow! Cool weather. The greens look GREAT and the fairways are freshly mowed. Time to try out some fall weather and play a round (or two or three or four) of golf. Come on out!
[10/01/16] FALL WEATHER! Perfect for golf. Regardless how great (or lousy) you are, we are the place to come and hit that little round ball. Just saw a note from a course that read, "We are offering aerification rates ($75 weekday, $95 weekend) through Oct. 13th." That is per player, without a cart, for 18 holes. Take advantage of the Duffer's REASONABLE RATES - come see us and celebrate fall! We open at 8:00 daily.
[07/11/16] The Boy Scout benefit tourney was a SUCCESS! Everyone enjoyed the day and the night rounds and the weather was great!!! The Eccentric Duffer is proud to have hosted this benefit and thanks those who, along with us, acted as sponsors. Good luck to the scout organization in their efforts to repair Camp Simpson!
NEWS FLASH! The course & range will be closing at 3:00 p.m. on the 4th of July 2016. We will open at 8:00 on the 5th.
Thanks to all of our loyal golfers and HAPPY 4TH OF JULY to all.

In spite of stressing out about the weather, golf camp has been successful. Tomorrow (Friday) is the last day. We've escaped all types of bad weather and the kids are learning a lot about golf. Just had to post the photo Richard Barron of the Ada News took yesterday. Let's hope this publishes the entire photo!!
The legend under it states: From left, Maygan Hill, Bentley Hill and Simon Hamilton get ready for some golfing fun at the 2016 Eccentric Duffer Golf Camp Wednesday morning at the golf course, located approximately one mile west of the Holcim cement plant at 13205 CR 1550 (Reeves Road).

[04/06/16] GOLF CAMP - May 23-27. More information soon!
[02/18/16] Well, it is a shame that our bright, sunny, perfect golf days are so windy that a golf ball will either end up in Pottawatomie county or just totally STOP ten feet out!!! Oh well, spring is somewhere around some corner. Keep us in mind when the wind is not aboutely howling - we're open when conditions allow play.

NEWS FLASH! See at
[05/22/15] Sorry everyone! We have been forced to postpone Golf Camp due to high water and more coming this way. We want our campers to get the best experience at camp and with it pouring rain and the course floating, that is not possible. Will post when we have rescheduled the camp. Thanks for your patience!
We've scheduled GOLF CAMP 2015. It will be May 25-29. Younger campers are scheduled for morning (ages 6-12) and the older ones in the afternoon. You will find the forms at www.eccentricduffer.com. Looking forward to having beginners and "repeaters" at the camp. They will have a blast AND learn things about golf.
eccentricduffer.com The Eccentric Duffer golf course is the brainchild of Ken Hobbs. Walking the property one day, he decided it would make a lovely golf course. Then Elizabeth spoke those fateful words, “Get after it!” It took 1½ years for the two of them to build the initial course. Family members helped, including t…
[03/22/15] WOW! The sun is finally shining. Sorry, the floating course is still just that - floating!! Provided the sun keeps shining and we have limited or no rain this week, the course SHOULD BE PLAYABLE mid-week. Please call to confirm that we aren't still under water. Thanks for your patience.
