Nebraska Classic Golf Tournament
A golf tournament held
in the Palm Springs area every February for over 35 years. Come join us!
The Nebraska Classic started
in 1974, here in the desert, as a gathering of friends with Nebraska ties. That
gathering had a golf outing and a social aspect that continues to this day The
event has been hosted by several clubs in the Coachella Valley over the years.
Mission Lakes CC hosted the first of many in the early years. The tournament
then moved to Rancho Mirage CC and Cathedral Canyon CC during the 90’s.
In 2003 the event moved to Woodhaven and then to Avondale which hosted the tournament
in 2007, Heritage Palms began hosting in 2008.
So come "Husk Some Corn" with other Nebraska people
and become a part of our annual outing. We are playing the Nebraska Classic
golf tournament this season at Heritage Palms on President's Day weekend in
2014. So get a group together and sign up. We will organize groups for those
who cannot get enough to form a foursome.
