The Prairie Club (Pines course)

The Prairie Club is home to two top-quality 18-hole championship layouts, the Tom Lehman designed Dunes course, and the Pines course designed by Graham Marsh.

Like its sibling, the Pines course is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in Nebraska. This tree-lined & open prairie-style course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area.
