As the oldest public course in Lincoln, Nebraska, Pioneers Golf Course was built in 1930. Originally 27 holes, the layout is spread across a gradual hill that the beautiful clubhouse sits atop. Now an 18-hole course, it has become one of, if not, the most popular course in the area. Twelve years in a row Pioneers Golf Course has led all the courses in Lincoln with the number of rounds played, and we want to take this opportunity to thank all our players for getting us to that accomplishment!

S. Coddington Avenue & W. Van Dorn Street Safety Improvement Project
Updated December 13, 2017
The project will replace the intersection with a single-lane roundabout to reduce vehicle crashes. The project includes the phased construction of new concrete pavement, trails, sidewalks and box culvert extensions, installation of a new storm drainage system and new signage, pavement markings and street lighting.
The phasing will allow at least three legs of the intersection will remain open during construction. Drivers should expect single-lane closures and detour routes will be posted at the site. Construction began April 24, 2017 and is scheduled to be completed by June 2018.
Access to adjacent businesses and residents will be maintained at all times and no known access restrictions are anticipated during construction. Access will be coordinated with the property owners throughout construction. Businesses and residents with multiple entrances will have one entrance open at all times, unless otherwise agreed to by the property owner. Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.
Construction is scheduled to begin April 24 and be completed in November. There are four designated phases that start April 24, September, October and November. Each phase will have a suggested detour.
Detour routes have been planned for each phase of the project.
It is expected that the fourth phase (November) will affect access to the Pioneers Golf Course the most. That detour will redirect intersection traffic to drive north on S. Coddington to W. “A” Street west. Turn west on W. “A” St to SW 40th St. Turn east on W. Van Dorn from SW 40th St. The course will be on the south side.
