One of the great benefits to the PGA Golf Management Program at UNL is the golf course access that is available to students. Your Player Development Fee essentially buys a membership at our primary course, Wilderness Ridge. It also provides students with access to 10 other great area courses!
The ability to provide our students with this kind of variety in golf course access is something that really sets UNL apart from the rest.
Wilderness Ridge Golf Club is the Primary UNL PGM course. Located in south Lincoln adjacent to Wilderness Park, this "Facility of the Year in 2002" is one of the newest in Lincoln.

As part of the Golf Facility and Player Development fee, Wilderness Ridge provides to PGM students access to its course (including golf car) and practice facilities.
