Sand Hills – July 2014

I never wrote about our trip to north central Nebraska in 2014. I felt like it needed to remain a secret, but now seems like the right time to share the details of our trip. We wrote to the owner the year before, and Will included some of his course designs that reflected his love of Coore and Crenshaw and his desire, at the age of 10, to play the course that revived the minimalist style of golf course architecture. Dick Youngscap invited us to stay and play at Sand Hills in the summer of 2014. It is still the best course we have ever played with the best greens we have ever putted. It defines the word masterpiece. Ron Whitten does it justice in his beautiful narration of the 18-hole high definition video flyover of all 18 holes. Enjoy.
