OLD SCHOOL GOLF CLUB is a new, private 18-hole destination course in the heart of Nebraska’s Sand Hills.
Any discussion of prairie golf begins with the iconic ‘Sand Hills Golf Club’ in Mullen, an hour south of ‘Old School’. Upon its opening twenty one-years ago, SHGC was selected the ‘Best Modern Course’ (#1) of all built since 1960, a distinction it has sustained. This remarkable success prompted inception of other nearby projects, each also attaining recognition among the brotherhood of ‘Best Modern’: Ballyneal (#4), Sutton Bay (#13), Dismal River (#23), Wild Horse (#68), and Prairie Club (#82).
Golf Digest’s recent tabulation of Nebraska’s premier venues named Sand Hills, Dismal River, Wild Horse, and both courses at Prairie Club in the top six; the venerable Omaha CC, site of the 2013 US Senior Open, was ranked #3. Of our nearest neighbors, Golf Digest rates Sutton Bay as South Dakota’s #1 course and Ballyneal as Colorado’s #2 course (among stunning competition). This region’s reputation as the continent’s foremost destination for quality links-style golf is solidly established.
