Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore designed the course at Sand Hills in 1994. This very selective club in Mullen, Nebraska is quite isolated, and is only open from spring to fall. Though it is about as far from the coast as you can get, the course still has the feel of the iconic Irish and Scottish links, in part because of the stiff breezes like those coming off the ocean. There is plenty of room on the site; indeed its size makes a cart almost a necessity. The culmination of a round is the signature par 4 18th, a dogleg that plays over four hundred and fifty yards with bunkering along one side to a raised green. There are few better courses anywhere in the US, so it is worth the effort to make the trek to this one-of-a-kind golfing experience for those who can wangle an invitation.
