Great course

Great course with fantastic fairways! Rough is tough, greens are very quick and undulating. Clubhouse could seriously use a facelift.

Great course to walk if you walk a lot, the walk up to 14 can get you tho,

This, amana and bluetop are fantastic and challenging. Much better rates and the walk ability of this one make it a fave. A good round here is earned.

Great parkland style golf course.

Bent grass tees and fairways. Greens very smooth and fast. Signature #13 waterhole dual greens surrounded by water. Home of the Iowa Hawkeye golf teams. A must play course open to the public.

Solid Public Golf Course

University of Iowa's public golf course. Bent grass fairways are fantastic. Old course, so the greens slope significantly from back to front on nearly every hole. Tree-lined fairways on every hole. The back nine is tougher than the front and has more elevation.

The speed of the greens make a significant difference. If they are average speed and you play in the Spring/Fall, it's a fairly scoreable course. Play it in the Summer in tournament conditions, good luck making it through without a three-putt or two. Keeping it directly below the hole is crucial. When it looks like you just have a left-to-right or a right-to-left putt, it'll sometimes feel like you're still above the hole for how much the ball can break.

If you miss the fairway, you will have to punch out to the fairway on most cases. I've even had a ball get stuck in a tree and had to re-hit in a tournament.

The only negative thing I can say is that you can run into a ton of ball marks on the greens. However, this is a heavily played public course, so it comes with the territory. I've played here about 15 times, and the course is usually in great shape.

No. 13 is the signature hole, a downhill par-3 with two island greens. It's an extremely fun shot no matter how many times you play here. Even if you are a scratch golfer and play from the tips, both the shorter and longer greens are a challenge.

This is a great course for all skills levels, especially with the wide variety of distances between the four tee boxes. Outside of No. 13, there is no water and no other forced carries. Yet, the greens and tree-lined fairways from the blacks and even golds make it a test for the more experienced players.
