LU Wins 2011 Creative Award

August 2011

Landscapes Unlimited is proud to have won the Golf Course Industry Magazine 2011 Creative Award for The Prairie Club in Valentine, Nebraska. LU built two distinct 18-hole courses in five months, overcoming sandy soils, high winds and a remote location to create a destination for golf purists.

So begins the tale of two courses: so different, in fact, our construction teams treated them as two different projects, even though they were being built simultaneously in the same area. As different as they were, perhaps the most amazing feat was that they were built in five months.

“Ideally, to build a course in most parts of the U.S., it would take us six to 12 months, so given that we were on a five-month schedule, the architects, contractors, developers and everyone else had to be focused to stay on schedule,” says Bill Kubly, CEO and founder of Landscapes Unlimited.

Accolades The Prairie Club has already gotten include “Best New Course” in the world and “Overnight Destination of the Year” by Golf Digest, “Best New Courses of 2010” for the Dunes Course (#2) and “Best New Courses of 2010” for the Pines Course (#8) by Golf Magazine, and “Top 10 New Golf Destinations in the World” by LINKS Magazine.
