The Prairie Club (Dunes course)


4+ (4 gold): one of our top-rated 4-star courses, worthy of 4½ stars.
   The Prairie Club (Dunes course) Est. 2010

Where2Golf says: 

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 Dunes course is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in Nebraska. This open links-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.

Stay & Play: on-site accommodation is available in The Lodge at Prairie Club (see Where2Stay section below).

Tournaments:
The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
