Omaha – American golf’s “Risking Frontier” is one national view of Nebraska as the state prepares to unveil two more highly anticipated courses this year.
The Lost Train northwest of Gretna and Landemand in northeastern Nebraska plans to open a summer opening.
Landmand will be tested in the tournament first.
The course on the bluff north of Homer has agreed to host two Nebraska Golf Association events, the Nebraska Mid-Amateur in late August and the NCAA Divisional Playoffs in October.
Both generate excitement. It and Lost Rail made Golf.com’s list of “11 new golf courses we’re excited to open in 2022.”
Josh Sens wrote of Landmand:
“Since the debut of Sweetens Cove, their beloved nine-hole stadium in Tennessee, everything has been running in the playing name of design duo Rob Collins and Tad King. Although the name is prolific in Lanman, which is the Danish word for farmer (lan-man) , the land itself is also worth marquee bills.The site is located in the jagged terrain of southwestern Nebraska, and the site has been likened in scope and brutality to Crudin’s Inland Bay.Addition to the good news: Although Landmand has a group of founding members, the bulk of the Its times will be set aside for public play.”

His Lost Rail Experience: “Nebraska is the bustling frontier of American golf, but many of its notable courses, including Sand Hills, Prairie Club, and Dismal River, are remote. Lost Rail is located 30 minutes from downtown Omaha. The routing was designed by Scott Hoffman, a former Fazio Design Associate, winds through landscapes that range from rolling pastures to the rugged terrain dug into a valley. One note: Taking the course doesn’t mean taking it. The missing train will be special.”

Tim Gavrich of Golfpass.com said Landmand is giving the Collins/King fan base the first chance to see what the duo can do with an 18-hole course.
“Few golf courses have been so promoted prior to opening as Landmand, with its bold design compared to the likes of Sand Hills, the Nebraska course now considered the greatest course built since World War II,” Gavrich wrote. “Landmand will be public, and when it opens sometime in the middle of ’22, expect it to fly like crazy.”
Last year, CapRock Ranch kicked off what should be considered the state’s second wave of unforgettable golf courses. The first wave was Sand Hills Golf Club and those that were originally born – Wild Horse, Dismal River and Prairie Club.
Golf Digest named CapRock Ranch, located southwest of Valentine and adjacent to Prairie Club, as its best new private course for 2021.
On the horizon is a North Maxwell course proposed by Dormie Network, based in Lincoln and with ArborLinks in Nebraska City as one of its properties.
