124th U.S. Open

Pinehurst No. 2



The Prairie Club: Pines Course

Valentine, NE, United States Public

Overview

Not as pure a Nebraska sandhills experience as sister Dunes Course, which is ranked No. 41 on our 100 Greatest Public list, the Pines Course has just 11 holes playing in the tumbling prairie topography. It repeatedly touches the edge of a deep canyon formed by the Snake River. Those seven holes (6 & 7, 10 & 11 and 16 through 18) are lined with tall pines and cedars and bring to mind a collection of holes in the Colorado Rockies. For pure golfing variety, Prairie Club rivals even Bandon Dunes.
