Landmand Golf Club in Nebraska put all of its 11,000 tee times for 2024 on sale via its website at 8am on New Year’s Eve. Two hours and 40 minutes later, all of them had been booked.
“It was an amazing day,” says general manager Adam Fletcher. “For 2023, our first full season, we sold out in approximately two and a half months; this year it was more like two and a half hours. The month of 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.”
Course owner Will Andersen says: “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 adds: “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 even 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.”
Unlucky golfers who missed out should keep an eye on Landmand’s Instagram page, @landmandgc, where any cancellations will be posted.
The course, which voted the best new public venue of 2022 in America by Golf Digest, was designed and constructed by the team of Rob Collins and Tad King. Open to the public, green fees at Landmand are $150 a round.
King-Collins Golf Course Design was founded in 2010 with the vision of creating bold, strategic, and artistically inspired golf courses at a below market price. Sweetens Cove GC in Tennessee, the firm’s first project, is ranked 63 on Golfweek magazine’s list of the best modern courses in America. The firm is working on projects across the United States; Landmand was its first 18-hole project.
