I play here frequently...

A fun course to play and can seem intimidating at first with problems either side, but the fairways are generous and some rough then trouble starts! Greens roll at about 11...maybe 12...the bunkers are well maintained. We play it at about 6,600 or so. Knowing which side you tend to miss it on is a big help....if you have a 2 way miss going-bring more ammo....

Great Layout, One with nature

This course is one of the best in Iowa. I try to play TCI 2 or 3 times a year. Great layout. There is a lot of trouble, but plays fair. Greens are sometimes beat up. Great 4 finishing holes. This course finishes Par 3, 3, 5, 4. Both Par 3s are neat first over a revine, next over water. Both about 175 yards. Then you get the 600 yard par 5. After that one of the most difficult par 4s on the course to finish. Great test of golf. This is a really fun course for a 4 per best shot too. I played with a friend from Florida and he said this would be $150 per round down there. Great Arnold Palmer Design.

Arnold Palmer shot-makers course

Play this course a few times per year. The layout is fun and is definitely a shot-makers course. Picturesque holes all around. The greens were a bit beat-up this year and the bunkers need some maintenance. Don't even think about walking this course!

Great shape for the fall!

Overall in great shape -- except for aeration on three holes (to be expected at this time of year) -- no leaves, not even in the fairway fringe. Greens were in excellent condition. A lot of meticulous maintenance makes for an enjoyable round of golf in a picturesque setting. Great job ground crews!

Unique course design through wooded hills. Excellent condition.

Rolling hills, fairways cut through the wooded countryside, manicured fringe. Each hole with a beautiful scenic view. Very challenging. Shot placement a must!

Great course!

We played last weekend and had no problem getting on. The staff was very helpful and took care of what we needed. As for the course even with the super hot summer the course was in good shape. Each hole offered something different. Also the course having both GPS in the carts and the LaserLink flagsticks was nice with multiple players on the course. Would play here again.

Great shape for Fall

First time at the course. It was beautiful and challenging. Every hole offered a different obstacle as well as a scenic view. Used every club in the bag which I enjoyed. I look forward to playing TCI again soon.

Challenge, but fun course to play.

Course was in outstanding shape for this time of year. Greens and fairways were leaf-free. Plan to lose a few golf balls if you are an average golfer. Fun course to play and very challenging.
