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).
