About

Mission Statement:

It is our mission to grow and promote the game of golf in Nebraska and surrounding areas. Our goal is to provide excellent content, coverage, and media of everything golf in Nebraska.

 

How it was founded:

Dave Shillinglaw, long-time contributor to golf in Nebraska wanted to create a place where everything golf in Nebraska converged onto one platform. Through social media and the help of a few friends, NebraskaGolf.org was created to highlight, promote, and grow the game of golf in Nebraska. We hope you enjoy the site, and would love to hear your questions, comments, or concerns. Please email dylan@nebraskagolf.org with inquiries.
