The Prairie Club (Dunes) GOLF COURSE Review
The The Prairie Club (Dunes) is located on a beautiful piece of property in Valentine, Nebraska and its golf course was designed by a duo of architects, Chris Brands and Tom Lehman respectively. The golf course was first opened for players in 2010 and its one of the most expansive courses Ive ever played. The bunkering can be described as inspired, whilst the genius green complexes and the massive width of the The Prairie Club (Dunes) makes it arguably one of the best golfing facilities in the United States, a must play to say the least. As per metrics, the The Prairie Club (Dunes) features 7583 yards of golf from its longest tees for a 73 par, with a course rating of 75 and a slope rating of 135.
Playing this baby, youll discover that are so many sets of tees, cleverly placed fairway bunkers and possible pin positions, not to mention the wind that comes into play now and then, that every time you play it, it makes for a different/unique experience, a very different feel round after round and that spells massive fun in my book. In my 2 days here, I played 72 holes from 3 sets of tees with 2 distinct winds, and truth be told, I had the fun of my life. Thing is, even if the wind switches 180 degrees from one day to another, the course remains interesting (both days) and fair, as it plays perfectly in both directions. Also, despite the The Prairie Club (Dunes)s huge greens, most of the time the internal contouring is very subtle, making long two putts doable. The routing is basically an out and back layout, yet not in the purest sense of the word. The sand hills are spectacular and the almost perfect fairways are best described as mesmerizing, as theyre mowed to perfection. Greens are relatively intimidating but if you take your time and study them, youll do alright.
