Sand Greens Still Exist On Nebraska Golf Courses
Unique golf adventures await you in Nebraska, where at least 18 of the state's golf courses still contain old-time sand greens. The Four Winds Golf Course in Kimball, Nebraska offers up some great package deals that will help you get used to the Nebraska playing conditions. Lincoln, the home to the University of Nebraska, is chock-full of golf options, Might we suggest checking out the newly renovated Hidden Valley Golf Club where rates are ridiculously low and the new layout offers many challenging holes and shot opportunities. For a little bit more on the sand greens, understand that these greens were in use before modern-day irrigation techniques allowed for high-quality grass to be used, and they carry some interesting rules.
On Nebraska golf courses, it is important to rake the green much like a bunker when you’re done putting. As well, most courses use oil to keep the sand in place, so wear an older pair of golf shoes. It is also advisable to inquire about the conditions and any special regulations when scheduling a Nebraska tee time. The sand greens will take some patience at first, but in no time you'll be a Cornhusker at heart.
