Golf course developer and construction company Landscapes Unlimited’s Lost Rail Golf Club in Gretna, Neb. was voted “Clubhouse of the Year” by Golf Inc. Magazine.
It is the second award the year-old Lost Rail received from the magazine. In June, it was named one of the world’s top three new private clubs.
Landscapes Unlimited’s project goal was to create a clubhouse that blends elegance with classic character. Golf Inc. judges loved the achievement: “Beautifully appointed. Such a warm and inviting space. Lovely selections.” Furthermore, “it’s a second home with a first-rate view.”
From afar, the 10,517 square-foot clubhouse resembles a 1920s home with chimneys, gables and dormers adorned in lime-washed brick. Featuring 20-mile panoramas, it sits high on a bluff overlooking the Elkhorn and Platte rivers, gleaming during the day and striking in presence at night.
The interior presents a small number of elegant rooms which are easy to navigate, a formal dining room, boardroom, locker rooms, offices and a “killer” bar with massive windows. The features are simple but timeless: fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, intricate crown molding, dark wood floors and vintage furniture. Windows are strategically placed throughout for natural sunlight.
