2005: Architecture’s New Frontier

Agar, S.D.

From above the first hole at Sutton Bay Club, I can look out westward across the Missouri River and scan an area about the size of my home state of Connecticut.

So this is the American West. I’ve seen it before in its raw, unmediated form, with native dunes and distant bluffs and scarcely a home or structure to clutter my view. Like the time I made the 55-mile drive through ranch land from North Platte, Neb., to Sand Hills Golf Club in the middle of grass-covered dunes. Or when I headed out to the northwest corner of North Dakota to play golf on bluffs overlooking Lake Sakakawea at The Links of North Dakota at Red Mike Resort. Moor ►

LINKS100 Course of the Month: Bayside Golf Club

Bayside Golf Club

By: Thomas Dunne

Driving east from Denver last September on my way to the clubs of the Nebraska Sandhills, I’d decided, as many do, to break up the five-plus hour drive across the prairie. I hadn’t given much thought to the fact that my chosen stopover was called Bayside Golf Club. After all, as the ’90s college rock hero Stephen Malkmus once mumbled, “There’s no coast of Nebraska.” But it turns out he was wrong. Moor ►

The Wild Horse Golf Club, located in Gothenburg, Nebraska is on the edge. It is on the northwest edge of a tiny Union Pacific RR whistle stop village; on the southeast edge of the vast sand hills territory of western Nebraska; and on the edge of golf architecture greatness compared and related to its neighboring highly acclaimed sister course, the Sand Hills Golf Club up the road in Mullen, Nebraska.
