Firethorn Golf Club
Firethorn Golf Club is regarded as one of the real jewels in golf. The concept for Firethorn began in the mid-to-late 1970s. Land was acquired to begin the development which was to include a housing component. In 1982, Dick Youngscap, the driving force behind Firethorn, persuaded Pete Dye, a world renowned golf course architect, to visit the site. Pete fell in love with the topography and agreed to be the course architect provided Dick could secure a critical tract of land that became holes #16, #17 and #18. The land was purchased and construction began. The wonderful golf course that resulted has received national acclaim.
Firethorn has been the venue for many local, state and national championships. On the national level, Firethorn has hosted several national championship events. In 1996 the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship was held by Firethorn. In 2002, Firethorn was the site for the Women’s Trans-National Championship. In 2006 Firethorn hosted the Men’s Division III National Championships.
Firethorn Golf Course is one of the premier golf experiences in the Mid-west. For more information please click on the “Golf” link at the top of the page and you will be connected to Firethorn’s Web site.
FT Development Company, Inc. was formed in 2006 to manage the development activities within the Firethorn community. The first phase of development encompasses 20 residential lots tucked into the closing holes of Firethorn’s West-9. These lots provide a buyer a unique opportunity to become part of the Firethorn community.
In the near future, eight townhome lots will be developed near the clubhouse. Additionally, three new single-family residential lots are available in the original Firethorn addition. These lots are consistent in size with those already in Firethorn.
The new development provides a unique opportunity to become part of Lincoln’s Premier Residential Experience.
