All eyes on these
The Prairie Club near Valentine has been described as five square miles of golfing glory. Several designers, including former British Open winner Tom Lehman, created these three distinct courses along the rim of the Snake River Canyon in the heart of Nebraska’s Sandhills. The Dunes Course, the Pines Course and the Horse Course have earned the club recognition from Golf Digest as one of America’s best new places to play.
Wild Horse Golf Club near Gothenburg is a links-style prairie course following the natural contours of the land. With native grasses and strategically placed bunkers devouring errant shots, even the best golfers must pull out all the stops to break even. From the very first hole, you’ll see why it’s one of the most acclaimed courses in Nebraska.
In Cambridge, the meandering course at Cross Creek Golf Links is a treat for golfers of all ability levels. Its wide fairways and large greens offset the daunting length—7,205 yards from the tips—and keep this wide-open course driver-friendly.
Meadowlark Hills in Kearney is also amiable to golfers. The course’s rolling fairways are a sight to behold as they glide along the bluffs of the Platte River Valley. Be sure to keep an eye on the ball, however, to avoid the many bunkers and water hazards that come into play.
