Best of 2016: Top 10 golf courses in Nebraska

We're counting down the best golf courses in the land of Cornhuskers and Buffett. The best golf courses in Nebraska that you can play make up great use of the Sandhills region, as well as rolling topography around Omaha, plus value courses around the capital of Lincoln.

To compile our state lists, we used a similar method to that of our our national Top 50 ranking. A course's score is based on their overall (50%) rating and subcategory average (50%). Reviews are weighted based on how prolific that reviewer is on Golf Advisor, and a course receives a bump in their rating if their score is better than that reviewer's average score.

The fact that Himark and eagle hills are on this list makes it complete nonsense

It's possible this little ditty finds you scooping up the last bit of cranberry pie crumbs out of the tray. Thanksgiving may have passed but the effects of celebratory eating around the table, and also possibly social imbibing during all the various football games throughout the weekend, are sticking with us. To our bellies and elsewhere.
