Prairie Dunes lives up to the hype

This is a course that has long been on my bucket list, and it certainly didn't disappoint. And that comes playing it on perhaps the hottest day of the year (103 degrees). What's remarkable is that we still saw people walking this course, which is a testament to how walkable it is. We, however, opted to ride, and it was still difficult getting through the round in the heat. What wasn't lost, however, was how terrific the original Perry Maxwell design and subsequent renovation by Coore-Crenshaw is. Every hole is memorable, with multiple options. The fairways are firm, and the holes are beautiful. This is a course that's pretty much right in front of you, though you have to pay attention to the greens. Finding the right portion is critical to scoring and avoiding three putts. I also love the overall vibe of the club, the history and how laid back the atmosphere is. Although it’s a country club (there's a pool and tennis courts), golf is clearly the focus. And it's great golf at that.

A challenging beauty with manicured surfaces

I played Prairie Dunes from roughly 6,800 yards in the middle of summer and boy, did the ball fly and roll a long way! The greens were also dry and firm so that added to the fun and challenge of the course. Coming from Florida where the conditions were soggy everywhere, the change in pace made the experience memorable since it forced me to play a different kind of game. Instead of carrying approach shots all the way to the pins as usual, I had to think about how much roll each shot would get. In many ways it reminded me of desert golf. I would definitely play here again.
