Wilderness Ridge is a public course that opened in 2001 and ranks among the top courses in the area. In addition to a demanding championship layout, Wilderness Ridge features one of the top indoor practice facilities in state.
Wilderness Ridge offers a challenging layout while providing the Huskers with a convenient practice location. The clubhouse at Wilderness Ridge was also recognized by Golf Inc. magazine as one of the best new facilities in the nation in 2003.
The Huskers also regularly practice at Firethorn Golf Club. Home to the 2002 Division III Men’s Golf Championship, the Pete Dye designed course has been rated 36th among the top 100 modern courses in the country. Firethorn also hosted the 96th United States Women’s Amateur. Firethorn is a “links” or target-oriented course with naturally flourishing shrubs and grasses.
Located not far from Lincoln in Nebraska City, ArborLinks has played home to Nebraska’s Fairway Club Invitational for four consecutive years and will host the tournament again in the fall of 2012. The Arnold Palmer designed course sits on a 330-acre parcel next to the Arbor Day Farm, a popular resort destination. ArborLinks plays off the natural landscape with hazards and bunkers that create an old world feel.
