REVIEW: Tatanka Golf Club at Feather Hill

Photo Aug 09, 4 10 13 PMI had the chance this week to enjoy a round of golf at Tatanka Golf Club at Feather Hill located near Niobrara, Nebraska next to Ohiya Casino & Resort. It’s a course that I have been wanting to try but it just hasn’t worked out, until now.

Na himself, nor the caddy are sure about how to count the strokes by the time he gets out of the woods. Continue reading

After a solid career at Oklahoma State, the youngster is taking his shot at professional golf. According to his website, Fowler traded in his dirt bike for a golf cart at the age of 14.
