Is This The Most In Demand Golf Course On The Planet

By: | Fri 05 Jan 2024

Thousands make the pilgrimage to The Old Course at St Andrews each year, while many more are left disappointed after failing to qualify through the many ballots that allocate tee times at the Home of Golf. 

Other legendary venues like Muirfield, Royal St George's and North Berwick can also be a challenge to access due to the sheer numbers hoping to play them. Revered public layouts in the United States like Bethpage Black and Torrey Pines are known for seeing intrepid golfers sleeping in their cars overnight just for a chance to step onto the first tee in the morning.

However, when it comes to arguably the most in-demand golf course on the planet, then you might be surprised to see that it can be found in Nebraska.

Ready for its second full season, Landmand Golf Club (pronounced 'Landman' after the Danish word for farmer), put all of its tee times for 2024 on sale via its website on New Year's Eve at 8am Central Time in America. Under three hours later, remarkably, all 11,000 tee times had been taken.

“It was an amazing day,” said general manager Adam Fletcher. “For 2023, we sold out in approximately two and a half months; this year it was more like two and a half hours. May sold out in 29 minutes, with August not far behind. We had five ‘lone wolves’ that closed out the summer’s tee sheet at 10.40am.”

The course's owner, Will Andersen commented: “I was in Minnesota, so I watched the madness from afar. It’s a fantastic testimony to the quality of the course, and the service offered by our team. But even knowing how great the course and the team both are, I was still amazed!”

Fletcher added: “We know there is hype over a new venue, and that we are becoming a popular destination, but it never occurred to any of us that it would get so crazy. We couldn’t be happier and are looking forward to the summer all the more. We understand that not everyone who wanted a tee time was able to book one, so we hope they will be able to snag any future cancellations.”

The Andersen family first came to Nebraska from Denmark in 1920, with the current generation now having expanded their interests from farming into golf. The family developed the Old Dane golf course in 2012 - with Landmand their second layout, which was created by King-Collins Golf Course Design - this being the first 18-hole course from a company that is committed to imagining bold, timeless, strategic, and artistically inspired golf courses at a below market price.

While Nebraska may not be at the top of your thoughts as a golf destination, you can learn more by visiting https://www.landmandgc.com/ - and you may even spot the occasional cancelled tee time.

This visually spectacular gem in eastern Nebraska has already resonated with golfers - and its incredible demand may only grow even further during the coming years!
