Marked by dramatic elevation changes, endless views of the Sandhills in all directions and immense blowouts easily viewed by satellite, golfers face this wind-shaped landscape and massive rolling seascape of prairie grass, searching, hoping for a bright calm slick of green fairway.
Lovers of links-style golf will welcome the challenge of keeping the ball low in the wind and pressing on.
If your ball sails true, cutting the air like a rudder, you make rapid headway on the Dunes Course. On this course, the terrain was utilized to be a friend, not foe.
Without question, in the words of Old Tom Morris, “Eh Mon! The Almighty had Golf in his eyes when he made this place!” "There is a word in the Sioux language, Wakanya, which means sacred. When I first stepped foot on the grass-covered dunes of The Prairie Club, that was exactly my first impression. The overwhelming presence of the Creator was evident in a way that is nearly impossible to put into words."
“It took us several visits just to understand how far apart things were. The scale of the place is so enormous that it messes with your perspective. Tom would see a natural blowout and think it was 180 yards away when it was actually 300."
