In the world of college golf, The Jackrabbit is an event unlike any other. On September 30, The Prairie Club will welcome 14 Division I & Division II golf teams to the Sandhills for the third annual Jackrabbit.
Hosted by South Dakota State University (SDSU), the Jackrabbit is a weekend-long event, offering top-student athletes and Prairie Club visitors the opportunity to get together and enjoy a round of competition and camaraderie.
SDSU Coach Casey VanDamme expressed his excitement about the 2017 field coming to The Prairie Club September 30-October 3.
“This year’s Jackrabbit is going to be another phenomenal event,” said VanDamme. “I’m really pumped with the schools that are coming and the talent on those teams. We’re excited to compete this fall.”
Up three teams from last year, The Jackrabbit is gaining recognition among top national teams as an excellent event, one that prepares their athletes on a top-ranked golf course, while also facing top-tier competition. Additionally, six of the 14 teams for this year are first-time attendees.
Teams are traveling from all over the country to the middle of Nebraska. It’s always a joy to show our property at The Prairie Club to new eyes.
