The Calamus Golf Course was incorporated in February of 1992, and construction
began soon after, thanks to the generous donation of 54 acres of land by Ferrall
and Gloria Meeks. With the dedicated help of countless volunteers, Calamus Area
Golf and Recreation opened to the public in the summer of 1994.
The Calamus Golf Course is a 2845 yd., par 35/men, par 36/ladies; 9-hole
course nestled in the beautiful Calamus river valley among the Nebraska Sandhills.
We boast large grass greens, irrigated fairways, with doglegs on seven holes. Ponds
come into play on 5 holes, with water having a significant role on our par 3's.
Grass bunkers give golfers an added challenge on most holes. The course offers a
driving range and a practice green to help you fine tune your game, or just for
a short warm-up.
Our signature hole is #3, a par 3, 141 yds & 84 yds for ladies. Accuracy is
the key, as the elevated green is surrounded by out of bounds on the left, water
short and right, and an old family cemetery just behind the green. Varying breezes
can make this hole a challenge, as your club selection might be a wedge or a 3
wood, depending on the day.
The Calamus Golf Course is open from April 1st,through November 1st. The new
Clubhouse is open and staffed from May through September.
The Calamus Golf Course is now closed to all outside alcoholic
beverages. Please purchase all alcohol from the clubhouse and pay all greens &
cart rentals there when it is open. We have a casual dress policy, but shirts are
required at all times.
