Welcome to Historic Red Cloud: Great Stories Grow Here!

Set amidst brick-lined streets, charming homes, historic buildings, and the immense beauty of the prairie, Red Cloud offers a glimpse into a storied American past while maintaining a progressive vision for the future. Willa Cather’s prairie novels introduced the world to the community and have left indelible impressions in the minds of her readers. Yet rich literary history is only one part of this unique town’s present-day draw. Your off-the-beaten path adventure will let you explore a rural lifestyle while also immersing yourself in arts, culture, history, and recreational pursuits.

9am Shotgun Start. Contact Ryan Zimmerman at 402-767-0030 for more information

"Red Cloud Golf Club is a spunky, hilly layout situated just east of town. Its fairways and greens are in good shape and the rough has been left native, making it tough to negotiate. The course features large raised greens with three to four foot drop-offs on all sides. If you can hit and hold the greens, you should fare well.
