A stern test, but great shape, a fantastic value, good fun
First, I’m biased - this is my home course, but I guarantee it will not disappoint. It’s hosted the Iowa Amature twice. Matt, the superintendent, keeps the greens rolling at about 11on the stimp, and his team keeps it in great shape. They’ve just redone the bunkers on at least four holes this summer. It’s hilly on the back nine, but walker friendly - I walk all eighteen a couple times a week. Jeff, the pro, and his team in the club house are super friendly. Good variety of equipment, and some rentals if you need them. There is a great range, practice bunker, and huge undulating practice green. Once school starts youll find a local college team, and high school team using the range.
No hidden shots, everything is right in front of you. Left of the fairway in in the creek, right in the fescue... so better hit it straight. Some fun downhill dog leg driveable green on 14,that could end up in the water or a putt for eagle, and take an extra club or two for the up uphill par three 13th. Great finishing holes on 18.
You won’t find a better value for the money. Saturday and Sunday mornings will be full of members, and most morning have the Over The Hill Gang going off early, but they move right along. Call in advance so you don’t run into league play in the afternoon/evenings.
Great pace of play for a weekend, greens were fast but fair. Course was nicely maintained, maybe a littlework on the bunkers.
