Why You Should Consider Nebraska for Your Next Golf Destination

Nestled in the heart of America's heartland, the Prairie Club boasts two world-class golf courses that offer a truly unforgettable experience. 

The Dunes Course, designed by Tom Lehman and Chris Brands, is a true masterpiece. It's been ranked as the #1 public golf course in Nebraska by Golf Digest, and it's easy to see why. The course winds through the stunning Nebraska sandhills, offering breathtaking views at every turn. The fairways and greens are undulating, which adds to the challenge of the course, but also creates a unique and memorable golfing experience. The Dunes Course also offers a unique feature: the 16th hole is a par-3 that plays directly over a large sand dune, which makes for an unforgettable tee shot.

The Pines Course, designed by Graham Marsh, is a more traditional course that offers a completely different experience. The course has been ranked as the #2 public golf course in Nebraska by Golf Digest, and it's known for its narrow fairways, challenging greens, and numerous hazards. It's a course that requires precision and strategy, and it's a true test of a golfer's skills. One of the most unique features of the Pines Course is the 18th hole, which is a par-5 that requires a tee shot over a deep ravine, followed by an uphill second shot to a green that's surrounded by sand traps.

Both courses offer a completely different experience, but they both have one thing in common: they're ranked among the best public golf courses in the country. Golf Digest has ranked the Dunes Course as the #76 public golf course in the United States. These rankings are a testament to the quality of the courses at the Prairie Club, and they make it a must-visit destination for any golfer.

After a long day on the links, you'll be able to relax and unwind in one of their luxurious accommodations. From cozy cabins to spacious lodges, there's a room for every kind of traveler. And the views? They're simply breathtaking. Imagine waking up to the sound of birdsong and the sight of the sun rising over the sandhills. It's a peaceful and rejuvenating experience that you won't find anywhere else.

And let's not forget about the dining. The Prairie Club's restaurants offer a range of delicious dishes, from gourmet burgers to fresh seafood. And of course, there's a wide selection of local beers and wines to choose from. After all, what's a golf getaway without a little bit of indulgence? (Drink responsibly).

Getting to the Prairie Club certainly depends on where you’re coming from. While there are a few regional airports, the only major airport nearby is Denver. After you land you have about a 280 mile drive through the heartland.

The Prairie Club is one of the best golf resorts in the country. While it certainly takes some planning, if you have the time, it’s worth the trek.
