Nebraska Golfer September 2019

1 - Made by a Farmer

It's impossible to tell the story of Nebraska without discussing its long history of farming. Generations of farmers have made the Cornhusker state what it is today. Golf also has a long history in the state, dating back to the 1800s. Countless golf courses across Nebraska border cornfields, and many see those same farmers hitting the links after their work is done. The Andersen family from Dakota City has combined their two pursuits to create a golf experience unlike any other. Landmand Golf Club is the newest golf venture in the state, and it will bring breathtaking views and 18 holes of pure golf.

3 - Golf's New Rules | Alternative to Stroke and Distance for Ball Lost/OB

One of the most significant and talked-about changes in the new Rules of Golf for 2019 was the introduction of an alternative to stroke and distance for a ball that is lost or out of bounds. Before we go any further on this topic however, let’s first clarify that stroke and distance is still the default in the Rules of Golf! The alternative relief procedure is only available when the golf course or the Committee running a competition has decided to put the optional Local Rule into effect. Before using it, you should verify with the person in charge of the golf course (often the pro) or the competition as to whether or not it is in effect. If so, click the button below to read more about how this new Local Rule works.
