Firethorn Golf Club

Lincoln, NE Private

Overview

Located in Lincoln, Firethorn is the only course in the state of Nebraska designed by the late Pete Dye. Built in the 1980s, it's the home course for the University of Nebraska's golf teams and offers a number of vintage Dye architectural touches including deep pot bunkers, several par-3 green angled against water hazards and an Alps-like short par 4 with a green completely hidden behind a mound. Those who haven't played the course before usually have no idea where it is.
