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

then to Avondale which hosted the tournament in 2007, Heritage Palms began
hosting in 2008.
