Polygon feature GIS vector dataset of golf course grounds located in Wyandotte County, Kansas, furnished as an ESRI shapefile format file in Kansas North State Plane Coordinates, Datum NAD83, Units US feet.
Based on golf course ownership polygons sourced from GIS tax parcels. A related dataset, golf_py, is strictly ownership polygons while this dataset has been modified from it to include golf land use outside current ownership polys in Sunflower Hills Golf Course.
This dataset includes public and private golf courses.
Metadata elements shown with blue text are defined in the Federal Geographic Data Committee's (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Elements shown with green text are defined in the ESRI Profile of the CSDGM. Elements shown with a green asterisk (*) will be automatically updated by ArcCatalog. ArcCatalog adds hints indicating which FGDC elements are mandatory; these are shown with gray text.

Attributes sourced from internal information and deemed very good
Golf course polys were determined by review of existing golf course layer in "Sites" dataset, and compared with digital ortho aerial imagery. In a few cases, golf land ownership had changed from that depicted in original Sites golf features (compared with current tax parcels) and were adjusted accordingly. Where golf course ownership boundaries did not jive with actual golf course land use (notably in Sunflower Hills Golf Course), poly extents were edited to include such land.
Complete compilation of golf course properties
No definitive accuracy statement is made. Boundaries are inherently as positionally accurate as source GIS tax parcels.
Aerial orthophotography provided snapshot of ground conditions to compare and review features, and as a base for feature extraction (digitization), if required
Furnished GIS tax parcel polygons
Golf course ownership polygons in existing golf_py layer were used as basis for this dataset. Only change was extension of Sunflower Hills Golf Course grounds into area adjacent to Wyandotte County Park, based on observable land use in 2010 orthophotography.
