The Langford Cup, founded in 2007, honors Milburn's original course architect, William B. Langford.
"A club of this nature is about people…. And the people are still going to be there."
"We have a hundred years of history. We have the camaraderie and friendship of the members."
After the reconstruction of the course's sand bunkers and tees in 2016, Milburn celebrates its Centennial Anniversary in 2017 and continues to reinvest in the Club. Milburn has been recognized by the golf industry as a top course in Kansas and featured by the Golf Range Association of America as a club that invests in itself.
