Detailed description of Sand Hills Golf Club

Sand Hills Golf Club is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Mullen, Nebraska.

Sand Hills Golf Club first opened for play in 1995. The course was designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore. The term design is used somewhat loosely here. The design in many ways was really finding the best placement of 18 fairways and greens on land that had hundreds of choices. Once the placement was decided upon, the rest was (by golf course building standards) easy. The land this course was set on was perfectly made for a golf course.

As an example, The sand in this area is unique even for the Sand Hills and is superbly suited for turf grass. Although extremely fine, the sand particles are perfectly round, preventing compaction yet allowing excellent water percolation. In fact, the percolation rate is comparable to that of a constructed USGA green; it could be said the entire Sand Hills golf course is built on a USGA greens mix. (The cost of building a USGA green is about $40,000. The Sand Hills greens cost about $300 each.)

The Fairways, greens, and tees at Sand Hills Golf Club were developed in 1994, using the following procedure: 1. Mowing existing vegetation to ground level. 2. Tilling all areas to a depth of 6 inches. 3. Doing minor finish on grading the greens. 4. Applying seed, fertilizer, and water.

The golf course at the Sand Hills Golf Club plays to 7,089 yards from the back tees. Par for the course is 71.
