Nebraska Golf Trips Make Great Gifts

 

LINCOLN, NEB. (DEC. 1, 2011) — The holiday season is the perfect time to give family and friends the gift of Nebraska golf. As colder temperatures settle in, golfers in the Midwest turn their thoughts to planning spring and summer golf trips, and Nebraska is being touted as one of the best destinations for exceptional golf and exceptional value.

 

In a recent article in Midwest Golfing Magazine, publisher Jay Royle summed up his trip to the state this way: “…Nebraska is quickly becoming a top-notch golf destination. Actually it already is; it just doesn’t get the recognition the Cornhusker State so richly deserves. I know I’m telling everyone to get to Nebraska and play some golf!”

 

Nebraska is home to well-known nationally ranked courses, such as The Prairie Club and Wild Horse Golf Club, and plenty of outstanding and affordable public and semiprivate courses are worth considering when planning a Nebraska golf trip. Several courses have joined together to offer special packages, including Play the West, Golf the North and the Nebraska Golf Trail. Individual lodging and golf packages are also available at some courses.

 

The Nebraska Department of Economic Development’s Travel and Tourism Division has made it easy for golfers planning a Nebraska golf getaway. A list of golf courses in Nebraska, sample trip itineraries, and links to articles and videos about Nebraska golf are available at VisitNebraska.gov/golf. Reviews of several Nebraska golf courses, including photos and videos, can be found at GolfNebraskaBlog.com. And the GolfNebraska Facebook page is a place to connect with golfers and share links to news about golf courses and events in Nebraska.

Golf Nebraska Campaign in Full Swing

 

LINCOLN, NEB. (July 12, 2011) — Nebraskans know their state is home to great golf courses. The Golf Nebraska campaign is taking that message beyond the state’s boundaries to attract more golfers from around the region to play — and stay — in Nebraska. It’s a project of the Nebraska Department of Economic Development’s Travel and Tourism Division.

 

“Nebraska is among Golf Digest’s top 10 golf states,” said Christian Hornbaker, director of the Travel and Tourism Division. “And golf is already a $260 million business in Nebraska. We want to grow that part of our state’s economy by attracting more visitors to play our outstanding and affordable public and semiprivate courses.”

 

Television commercials and website advertising are targeting golfers in surrounding states, encouraging them to “Get Driving” to Nebraska for a golf vacation. The campaign also includes emails sent to golfers throughout the region and an expanded Web page at VisitNebraska.gov/golf. A mobile Web page includes a list of courses and possible trip itineraries at VisitNebraska.gov/golfers.

 

Social media sites also offer golfers new ways to learn about Nebraska golf courses and engage other golfers. GolfNebraskaBlog.com provides course reviews through the eyes of avid golfers who share their impressions of the courses they play and the people they meet. Blog postings with photos and videos will be added throughout the summer.

 

The GolfNebraska Facebook page is a place to connect with golfers who play Nebraska courses or want to travel to Nebraska for a golf getaway. Visitors will find news, photos and videos about Nebraska golf at facebook.com/GolfNebraska. Anyone who plays Nebraska courses or is considering a golf trip to the state is welcome to share their thoughts, experiences and questions about golf in Nebraska.

 

Nebraska has more than 200 public and semiprivate golf courses. Several have been recognized by national golf publications for their design, scenery and value.
