Inspired by the great links courses of Ireland, Jim Engh, the designer of Awarii Dunes has often stated that his inspiration can be traced to his trips to Ireland to visit the golf links of the Emerald Isle.
Awarii Dunes is located on a site that allowed Jim to put his signature on links golf. The 18-hole championship course measures approximately 7,000 yards and was built on sand hills created by nature, not man. The course winds through, around, and sometimes up and over these dunes.
Less than 30,000 yards of dirt were moved to create the golf course. Jim believes, “It could be one of my best.”
Home to the University of Nebraska-Kearney golf teams, Awarii Dunes is a premier facility located in the center of our state. When they say “seeing is believing,” they mean it. Awarii Dunes is yet another scenic course with dozens of views that will take your breath away. Along with the challenge of the course, it makes for a great day at Awarii Dunes.
