Landmand Golf Club, a highly rated golf course near South Sioux City, Nebraska, sold all 11,000 tee times for 2024 within two hours, the course says.
“For 2023, we sold out in approximately two and a half months,” said Landmand owner Will Andersen. “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 10.40 a.m.”
“I was in Minnesota, so I watched the madness from afar,” Andersen said. “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!”
Landmand, which opened to critical acclaim in 2023, is rated by Golf Digest as the No. 3 course in Nebraska. The name means “farmer’ in Danish.
“It was an amazing day,” General Manager Adam Fletcher said if the online booking frenzy that occurred on New Year’s Day.
“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,” Fletcher said.
“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.”
Golf Digest wrote this about the course:, which was developed on a windswept bluff by Andersen, whose family has run a major farming operation in the area.
“Given the setting, it’s impossible to discern the scale of the features in the near and middle distance, and the only way for architects Rob Collins and Tad King to make the golf look like it fit against the endless backdrops was to construct fairways 80 to 100 yards wide and greens that are, cumulatively and in some cases individually, the largest in the United States.”
