Quarry Oaks is an inherent part of the scenic Platte River Valley panorama. With its majestic tree-lined fairways, the 7,051-yard course is nestled quietly into the natural landscape of ridges and valleys, limestone enriched terrain, native vegetation and wildlife.

Designed by John LaFoy, the course opened in April of 1997 and is one of only four courses in Nebraska earning a rating of 4.5 stars or higher from Golf Digest's Best Places to Play. In addition, it currently ranks 95 among the magazine's list of America's 100 Greatest Public Courses.

No. 18 is a fitting finishing hole for such a fine venue. A 522-yard, par 5, the hole boasts a cascading stream along the right and a green tucked beyond a cluster of oak trees.
