#5 in Nebraska
The Prairie Club – Pines Course
Yardage: 5,345 – 7,403 Yards
The Prairie Club, located just outside Valentine, NE has two 18-hole championship courses (Dunes and Pines). The Pines course checks in at #5 in our rankings of top courses in the state. Words do not do The Prairie Club justice, but we will do our best!
The scenic course features many ponderosa pine trees couples with incredible views of the Snake River Canyon. The course most recently hosted the Nebraska Match Play Championship in 2015 which was won by Michael Colgate of Lincoln.
Course Architect Graham Marsh says it best: “I have attempted to blend these two unique forms of golf into an experience that excites and challenges players through a collection of holes on each nine that move seamlessly through the many dramatic and varied landforms of the property. It is my dream that the course will be remembered as one having 18 distinct holes, each with its own character that seduces and lures players into returning for the sheer joy of the challenge and the experiences. I found it incredible good fortune that I should have had the opportunity to design a course that encompassed two of my favorite styles of golf. I will never forget the journey. I trust your journey on The Pines Course is equally memorable.”
The Prairie Club is a top-notch facility and is the perfect opportunity to experience pure golf with no distractions. With competitive stay and play rates, you must visit!
