Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Iowa
Windy day on the ridge
Great time playing blue top, 75 degrees but the wind kicked up and this course showed its teeth. Flew around the front 9 but pace slowed after the wind came up. Will definately try this course again.
Have played this course three times and have seen no more than four other groups on the course all three times. This is an invaluable perk as the pace of play has been exceptional, the conditioning just as impressive, and the rates beyond reasonable. Feels like a private club. Truly first rate. Course design is very good, as well. Highly recommended for anyone visiting the area (Iowa City included) and looking for a special experience.
Well kept course
This course was in very good shape. Greens were true, bunkers properly filled and groomed. GPS on carts were accurate. Staff was Iowa nice.
Back nice was quite scenic and fun to play. Greens are not flat yet are challenging but overall fair. Certain pin placements need to be factored on approach shots and chips.
Have not played here in over 10 years and it was worth the round. Will be back - likely this summer.
Course is playable if you play the right tees. We played the green tees and that was tough enough. Younger guy in group should have played one more longer tees because he drove through the fairways on a couple of holes
Challenging course with elevation changes. Course knowledge helps as there are a few blind shots. Take an extra club or two
Absolutely stunning course
I was blown away by this superb course. It has a tremendous layout with huge elevation changes, wild bunkering and large undulating greens. My last season round did not feel like that as the conditions were excellent.
I would have loved to have played the abandoned holes along the river, but flooding doomed them several years ago.
The overall course was great. Its beautiful and a great layout. The greens were horrible. Sand and arriated.
Awesome course and layout - ranger horrible
This is an amazing course, fairways were perfect, greens fast and true. I will play this course everything I come back to visit family in the area. However, the ranger was a piece of work with an attitude. I should pay $90 on a holiday weekend to be berated and talked down to for being 4 minutes behind on the 9th hole. No one was ever waiting on us but he said we were backing everyone up. Told us to keep up with group in front of us, but there wasn’t a group from the time we tee’d off. They had to be 3 holes ahead of us. Just absolutely horrible and threw everyone’s game off for a few holes. I told the guy in the pro shop and he made excuses for the ranger and said he gets that way, but you should absolutely address this as he should not be working here if that’s the attitude he takes with everyone.
A TRUE BUCKET LIST COURSE
Very nice resort and golf course. We hadn't played here since they changed the routing of four holes. That change worked out very well. The front nine is a nice layout but the back nine is exceptional. Don't miss a chance to play this gem.
Diamond in the Rough
What a treat it was to play this course. This course is a gotta be the top 1 or 2 public course in Iowa. The course was in amazing shape especially with all the rain they have had lately. Greens were in perfect shape, soft but fast. Fairways were great and the rough was thick. Front nice is really nice layout couple blind tee shots. Once you get to the back it is really a treat. Par 11th 500 yards and goes straight UP HILL. From there on its up and downhill with some great views. Each side has a drive able par 4 risk reward style. I really enjoy that in a course. I was very impressed with everything expect for the entrance, things are a bit confusing and the pro shop is hidden. Beside that this place is top notch. Definitely a must play,.
GREAT PLACE TO STAY AND PLAY
The staff at the entire complex was great!! We spent the week-end and had a great time at the course and casino.
