LINCOLN, Neb. – The wind roared and the rain fell Saturday as Nebraska was hit with blizzard warnings and tornado possibilities. But, that didn't stop the more than 100 people who attended the Lincoln City Golf Open House at Holmes Golf Course.
"I'm not terribly surprised, I think people are really, really anxious to play golf this year," said Scott Carlson, Head Golf Professional, Holmes Golf Course.
"It's a great game, not only the physical having to go out and execute shots, but also the mental," said Jason Peter, former Nebraska football player and National Champion.
The event had free hot dogs, vendors, and information booths on golf clubs and memberships.
There's a strategy to everything, you know, the greatest golfer in the world Tiger Woods, he's constantly playing mind games with his opponents and obviously you still have to go out and be able to hit the ball and get it in the cup, but I think it's a great sport, I wish I had played as a kid," said Peter.
Peter said he's trying to get his two young daughters, ages six and eight into the sport so that they can play as a family.
I only started to try to play when I moved back to Nebraska and obviously the body doesn't move like I'd like it to with all the injuries, but it's a great sport.
