The highly anticipated 18-hole golf course was shaped from the rolling cropland overlooking the Platte and Elkhorn Rivers near Omaha. The property was the terminus of a rail line abandoned in the early 1900s. The raised rail bed still transects the property and is a feature and backdrop for several holes. Lost Rail Golf Club’s vision was to create a golf club for golfers with no swimming pools, tennis courts, weddings, public events, etc. It is not another full amenity country club but rather designed to become a world-renowned golf experience.
Landscapes Unlimited has been involved with the Lost Rail project since before the land was acquired. The vision for the facility was to create a remote, wilderness-type golf experience close to Omaha, Nebraska. Just 30 minutes from downtown, Lost Rail provides members & guests with a pure golf experience close to home. The golf course components of the Lost Rail project include the 18-hole 7,300-yard course, a modern practice facility, and a seven-hole short course.
From a project development standpoint, Landscapes managed:
- clubhouse planning, design & construction
- halfway house planning, design & construction
- maintenance design, planning & construction
- entry road and parking grading & construction
- all associated infrastructure
Lost Rail was a comprehensive turnkey program. Construction and Operations Management started before the land acquisition was finalized. These phases included:
- design & permitting
- membership sales & marketing
Landscapes Golf Management has now assumed responsibility for ongoing day-to-day golf club management.
