Dunes Course Rated in Top 100

September 9th Golf Magazine released their list of Top 100 Courses You Can Play biennially, listing the top 100 golf courses inside the United States available for play by any and all golfers.

The Prairie Club has again, cracked the top-100. The Dunes Course (a Tom Lehman/Chris Brands design) was featured!

In fact, the 2014 rankings reveal the Dunes Course and its raise in appeal amongst golf course raters. It is now rated in the #74 slot, a 4 place improvement from 2012.

As noted in 2012, the list serves as an important benchmark for the average traveling golfer in America, as nearly 85% of the top-rated courses in America are restricted to private play.

 

American Red Cross is Calling for Nominations for the Heroes Game

Who’s your Hero?  Do you know someone who has performed an extraordinary act of courage or dedicated countless hours to a special cause?  The American Red Cross is looking for the common citizens, the unheralded and unselfish pillars of our community.

A hero from both Iowa and Nebraska will be honored before a crowd at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City, IA when the Iowa Hawkeyes and Nebraska Cornhuskers play the Heroes Game presented by Hy-Vee on Friday, November 28, 2014.  Go to www.hy-vee.com or visit your local Hy-Vee Store to nominate your hero today.

“There are Heroes walking among us every day—the people who put others above themselves—and it is our pleasure to work with Hy-Vee, the University of Nebraska and the University of Iowa again to recognize Heroes across Iowa and Nebraska,” said Tina Labellarte, Region Executive of the American Red Cross Nebraska/SW Iowa Region.

A hero must be at least 18 years of age and live, work or go to school in either Iowa or Nebraska; however, the act of heroism or good deed need not have occurred in either state.  One person from both Iowa and Nebraska will be selected to represent each state at the Hy-Vee Heroes Game on Friday, November 28th in Iowa City, IA, receive four tickets to the Iowa vs. Nebraska NCAA football game and have their name and hometown inscribed on the Heroes Game trophy.

Nominations will be taken September 6 – October 14, 2014.  Nomination forms, rules, and further information can be found online at http://www.hy-vee.com/company/community/heroes-game.aspx or may be picked up at local Nebraska and Iowa Hy-Vee stores.  Hero nominations not selected for the Heroes Game will be considered for recognition at the Annual American Red Cross Heroes of the Heartland events in selected Nebraska and Iowa cities and towns in 2014.

Nominations may be filled out online or mailed to the American Red Cross Omaha office, 2912 S. 80th Ave., Omaha, NE 68124, or faxed to (402) 343-7777 by midnight on October 14, 2014.
