Mahoney and the City of Lincoln go extra mile to prepare for 2010 Special Olympic USA National Games

July 21, 2010

When the City of Lincoln caught wind that the 2010 Special Olympics USA National Games would take place here, preparations began almost immediately. The city’s Mahoney Golf Course had three years’ worth of changes to take care of before the national games arrived.

“Last year we had an NIT [national invitational tournament], which was comprised of 21 states,“ said Chuck Domant, pro shop assistant. “So we had a preview of what we were going to get this year.”

The most important issue Mahoney took care of was to make its facility handicapped accessible. That included remodeled restrooms and a re-carpeted clubhouse.

The next step was to make Mahoney’s appearance top notch for the games. Mahoney and the City of Lincoln removed and replaced sandpits, planted trees throughout the golf course and purchased a new scoreboard.

All the hard work appears to have paid off.

“It’s taken thousands of people to get hundreds of golfers, but the whole experience has been rewarding,” Domant said.
