No matter how great our little town, we are connected to the wide-wide world. To a degree that might surprise newcomers; our townsfolk recognize this. They join Rotary International; they have seen fit to give every student in our school an Apple laptop connected to the web; and our farmers can tell you, right now, the spot price of corn in Chicago. We live in Arnold, so we invest ourselves right here where we are while being fully aware that Arnold, Nebraska, is on planet earth.
The purpose of the American Legion is to support American’s veterans.

Arnold Golf Association
In 1998, the Arnold Golf Association upgraded its course from sand greens to grass. Members built the course with funding by donations and sponsorships of the greens by businesses and private citizens. Current membership is between 80-90 members. Through memberships, the Arnold Golf Course employs one full-time groundskeeper.
The Arnold Golf Association hosts the annual Dodge Truck Hole in One Tournament, which provides golfers a chance to win a new Dodge on a 176 yard par 3. Multiple tournaments are also held throughout the summer for three-person scrambles, couples, and seniors.
The Arnold 9-hole course is very golfer-friendly, but you will encounter the creek four times while playing the course for at least a bit of challenge. The course is a par 36 with two par 3, four par 4, and two par 5 holes. The Arnold course is fun to play because it’s easy to get on, no tee-time reservations required. Give the Arnold Golf Course a try. Even if you golf like Beetle Bailey, you’ll enjoy the beauty.
South of Arnold approx. half mile, east of Highway 40, next to the Arnold Cemetery
