Just plain fun

Greens are for the thinking person. If you get within 12 feet your putt will roll true.

Golf should be fun. And this course is fun. Wide fairways but the dunes in the fairways and blind shots to the green will keep you interested.

More yardage marking or gps in carts would be nice. Maybe those aren’t true Links course amenities.

First time through … read the guide book for each hole.

Great Track!

Awarii Dunes needs to be on your list of courses to play if you're driving through or around the West/Central part of Nebraska. Great look, great layout, wide fairways and some tricky greens!

Highly Recommended!

Fall conditions - less than ideal

An interesting links course. Layout could certainly be very challenging with windy conditions.

Unfortunately, I played apparently the last week the course was to be open for the year. The greens were all aerated and rather bumpy, very much a factor. Fairways were being topdressed with sand, so about 1/3 of them were nearly sand traps.

Staff was pleasant.

Course is probably much better in summer when it's not being put to bed for the winter.

Fun course / challenging greens

Fun layout with some changes to score if on the right side of pin at approach. Greens can force a big number on score card if your irons are not sharp. Bunkers are large but shouldn’t come into play with size of fairways. Overall a very enjoyable course and worth the stop

“Carts Don’t Grow on Trees”

Assistant pro was the rudest person I’ve ever encountered working at a golf course in 25+ years playing golf.
Threw a hissy fit to us about taking 3 carts because we wanted to keep our distance; we were all from out of town and no one working in the clubhouse mentioned a word about it when we checked in separately and just said carts were out front with keys in. He drove all the way out to the first tee to yell at us. He made it seem like there was a dire shortage “Carts don’t grow on trees”. There were at least a dozen other available carts when we tees of at 3:10 and when we finished there were upwards of 20. He wanted to get in a fight but we bit our tongues and acted like adults unlike him.
Course was fine. Good conditions but way softer than it looks. Bunker surrounds are entirely too penal. The bunker is the penalty, you shouldn’t lose a ball in the surround. Greens are extreme but don’t run fast enough to take advantage of the slopes and 80% of the huge surfaces are unpinnable and don’t come into play.
Drive an hour further west and play Wild Horse. 10x better course and no one will treat you like a little kid who acted out.
