The Prairie Club

Deep in the heartland of America, on the rim of the Snake River Canyon, near Valentine, Nebraska, is The Prairie Club, a place that rivals more famous golfing destinations and attracts devout believers in the game. Played as it lies, this uniquely American terrain has been so gently seeded, each hole so naturally revealed, it is as if the Divine Hand wore a golf glove: unimaginable beauty, heightened senses, and a focus on leaving well enough alone. So come experience what may be the world’s most undisturbed holes of golf. Dunes Course -- With 18 holes of Championship golf set in the widest of open spaces, the Dunes Course and its seven sets of tees that stretch from 5752 to 8058 yards provides golfers a chance to play their game in an extraordinary setting where the marriage of wind, sky and land has created a pure, unadulterated golf experience. Marked by dramatic elevation changes, endless views of the Sandhills in all directions and immense blowouts easily viewed by satellite, golfers face this wind-shaped landscape and massive rolling seascape of prairie grass, searching, hoping, for a bright calm slick of green fairway. Links-style golfers will welcome the challenge, keeping the ball low in the wind and pressing on. If your ball sails true, cutting the air like a rudder, you make rapid headway. Racing over the swells of this ocean of grass, rather than fighting them, you will find yourself in the short order arriving on a beautiful island of bent-grass, the magnificent greens of the Dunes Course, a place as close to a tropical atoll as one finds in all of Nebraska. Pines Course -- A semi-protected 18-hole championship golf course that meanders through the pines on the edge of the canyon rim, The Pines Course features five sets of tees ranging from 5345 to 7403 yards. The prevailing prairie winds are blocked by the western wall of the canyon and trees, making the warming sun and the canyon views stunningly beautiful. The result is a silent reverie for the golfer. But you will snap to your senses after hearing the first echoing crack of your golf ball against the unmoving trunk of a ponderosa pine. Trouble will find you here. Pull yourself together after the third hole windmill pump and get a long cool drink. Your head now cleared by the largest underwater aquifer in the world, the Ogallala, you should now thread the pines like a pro, and end in full stride on classic risk/reward par 5 finishing hole with the clubhouse in the background.
