Omaha Country Club - Omaha, NE
Omaha Country Club was originally established in 1925 by Wayne Stiles and in 1951, it was Perry Maxwell that revived the course. The critically acclaimed Maxwell also has his name on courses like Augusta National, Prairie Dunes, and Southern Hills. Most recently in 2005, Keith Foster was hired to restore the courses original integrity and design. The successful renovation paved the way for the 2013 US Senior Open. The event was a success and a return visit is planned in 2021.
My round started off tense with some serious scramble action, followed by some serious picture taking action. Let's just say by the time I reached the back nine, there was plenty of action. On the 11th hole, something special would happen. As I struck my tee shot on the par 3, I could feel a text message buzz in my pocket. My ball was headed right for the flag and would stick and stay with inside of a foot of the pin. Not only would I tap in for a 2, but that text message would also read "All set with for Oct 10th at NGLA" Not a bad couple of minutes; a birdie at OCC and an invite NGLA.
