Prairie Bluff’s finely manicured fairways blanket more than 237 acres of scenic, rolling hills. Bring a friend, opponent, or favorite life-sized marionette to tour 18 holes bestrewn with pockets of lush prairie grass, 10 shimmering lakes, and more than 40 hazardous bunkers. The serenely beautiful course bestows an exciting challenge upon pros, and each hole sports four sets of tees to make the greens accessible to golfers of all skill levels.
Prairie Bluff strictly adheres to USGA course rules during play, and players should plan on leaving jeans and T-shirts at home in favor of more appropriate golfing attire, such as slacks, collared shirts, and plaid Zubas pants. When finished zipping around the scenic grounds in their motorized Flintstone car, players can drop by the 10,000-square-foot clubhouse to enjoy a bite at the on-site restaurant or stop in to the pro shop to engage in conversation with like-minded links lovers or sharply dressed mannequins.
Prairie Bluff Public Golf Course
Nearly 240 acres of pristine, bent-grass fairways and slick greens radiate outward from the 10,000-square-foot clubhouse that anchors Prairie Bluff Public Golf Course. Here, players embark on trips around a 6,893-yard course that brings them into direct confrontations with 10 water hazards and more than 40 bunkers—any one of which could be camouflaging a buried treasure chest. The clubhouse greets visitors once again as they finish off at the 18th hole, and clubhouse attendants welcome them in to the course restaurant if they're hungry or direct groups to the 10-acre driving range if they're in search of more practice.
