Baby's First Golf Trip - Western/Central Nebraska

Recommended Posts

So I've never been on anything akin to a golf trip, until tomorrow!  For years we've had 2 car payments and plenty of financial reasons not to go, but with both cars paid off and a pretty affordable invitation coming my way, I head out tomorrow for 90 holes Tuesday through Thursday.  

The funny part is, I got invited by a bunch of retirees who play nearly every day at the base course here.  All really good guys, but they've all got 15 years or more on me...I may be the only guy playing from the regular tees!  But, it will be fun, and it's always good for the ego when someone is impressed by your 280 yard "bomb"!  🤣

First course, Woodland Hills in Eagle:

Second, Wild Horse in Gothenburg:

Then, Awarii Dunes in Axtel:

The premier resort to play is The Prairie Club in Valentine, but that will have until the spring...

I just read about Wild Horse, you're going to LOVE that course.  Enjoy your trip & play well!  I got it confused with Iron Horse in Ashland.

No sweat.  I've played Iron Horse several times and enjoy it, but to me Quarry Oaks up the road is the best track in the area.  I keep reading/hearing rave reviews about Wild Horse though.

Day one in the books.  Forgot to take any pics of Woodland Hills, but really wasn’t inspired to.  Not a bad course, just nothing extraordinarily picturesque.  Did shoot a personal best 73, then followed it up with a not so good 82.
