This heartland golf course sold all of its 2024 tee times in less time than it would take to play the course

The public-access Landmand Golf Club in Homer, Nebraska, the first original 18-hole layout by King-Collins Golf Course Design, opened for regular play Sept. 3, 2022, to a rousing reception and word is spreading fast.

“For 2023, our first full season, we sold out in approximately two and a half months, general manager Adam Fletcher told Golf Business News.

But that was just a warm-up.

“This year it was more like two and a half hours,” he said.

You read that right. Tee times for the entire year of 2024 were gone in less time than it would take to play the course, which debuted in a tie for No. 26 on Golfweek’s Best 2023: Top 200 Modern Courses in the U.S., the highest debut of any course. It’s ranked No. 1 in the Golfweek’s Best Courses You Can Play 2023: State-by-state rankings for public-access layouts for Nebraska. And while the course is already a huge hit, the prices remain somewhat reasonable at $150 a round.

Built atop and around bluffs and dunes in the Loess Hills – geologic terrain left in the wake of retreating glaciers during the last Ice Age – Landmand presented unique challenges and opportunities in a wide-open and extreme landscape with views for miles. Collins said he and King went all-out in trying to take advantage of everything the site, including its 150 feet of elevation changes, offered.

“The first time you see it, the scale is just going to blow your mind. Every time I go out there, I laugh about it. Things that are gigantic in reality just shrink in this landscape,” Collins said.
