Firethorn Golf Club

Lincoln NE


The Championship Course was designed by world-renowned golf course architect - Pete Dye. This is the only Dye designed course in Nebraska and is considered one of the best and most difficult golf courses in the State. Firethorn takes pride in our commitment to golf at the local, state, and national levels. Firethorn is the preferred course of the University of Nebraska men’s and women’s golf teams. Firethorn has hosted both the men’s and women’s Nebraska State Amateur Championships, along with the men’s State Match Play Championship numerous times. On a national level, Firethorn has been the venue for the NCAA Division III Men’s National Championship on three separate occasions, the Women’s Western Amateur Championship, and numerous qualifying rounds for the U.S. Open, U.S. Senior Open, the USGA Mid-Am, and U.S. Women’s Open. Finally, the 1996 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship and the 2002 Women’s Trans-National Championship were played at Firethorn.
