Drought closes Superior golf course

Though this winter has included several days suitable for golfing, members of the Superior Country Club have been notified the course is closed until further notice.

A combination of the continuing drought and players’ traffic is putting the course in jeopardy.

Until conditions change golfers will not be permitted to walk or drive golf carts on the course.

The club house will remain open on Wednesdays and Fridays and provide players a place where they can gather and talk about golf even if they aren’t allowed on the course.

The 2022 tournament schedule was posted Sunday. The schedule opens with a three-person scramble on April 24. There will be a one-person scramble on May 29. The Superior High School two-person scramble is planned for June 4 and will be followed on June 5 by an adult and child scramble.

Nebraskaland Distributing and the Superior Country Club will join in sponsoring a three-man scramble played over three days, June 10-12.

The ladies will hold a 4 the Cure scramble on June 18.

The Superior 3000 Foundation’s annual four-person scramble to be held on July 9 is the first of four to be held this year. Similar scrambles will include the Superior Red Caps on July 16, the senior scramble on July 21 and the Superior Volunteer Fire Department scramble on July 30.

Three scrambles are planned for August and one in September. The Budweiser Superior Country Club on August 5 through 7, the Mark Utecht Memorial on August 20, the Jake Kleen on August 27 and the Joby Hanson Memorial on September 19.
