Beatrice Country Club’s 18-hole course unfurls across 7,169 yards of Nebraska countryside for a par 72 course that blends elements of woodland golf and a traditional, links-style layout. The majority of the course’s fairways tunnel through tight tree lines that temper aggressive impulses at the tee box like a caddy studying to be an anger-management therapist. Encroaching timbers vanish for a stretch, during which relatively open fairways run alongside water hazards and thickets of tall grass, affecting the landscape of golf’s seminal Scottish links. With five tee options, the course caters to clubbers of all stripes. Arching drives trace the sky at the onsite driving range, where duffers prepare for their round and practice balls efficiently sign waivers before launching themselves into the stratosphere.

Angels Theatre Company is a woman-focused community theater group dedicated to producing original works and providing artistic opportunities to Lincoln talent. String of Pearls, a co-production with the Lincoln Community Playhouse, explores the diversity of women's lives through uplifting and tragic times with a pearl necklace as the common link. Beth, a woman who has lost her husband and daughter, is desperate to find a string of pearls to give to her granddaughter on her wedding night, putting her at odds with militant oysters who are hell-bent on reclaiming their self-made treasures. The necklace’s journey touches the lives of 27 women over 35 years, similar to the ancient Greek legend of the nomadic Herakles knot.
