You have to play this course twice to really enjoy the challenge. The first time the course beat me up. The second time I knew what to expect on each hole and was able to shoot an 81. 98 the first time. Put this course on your list to play. It is well worth your time and money. I took... More

Great staff, great rates and remarkable course. You will see wildlife while you're separated from the rest of the field on each hole by trees and hillsides. Every hole is a challenge with either water, bunkers or steep hills placed near the greens. You may wanna keep you driver in the bag and just keep the ball in play. For... More

Best course in Iowa , would give up golf if not for TCI. Most golf courses in Iowa are like playing on a converted cow pasture. Not TCI

Pace of play is consistently HORRIBLE. Management crams waaaaay too many players onto this course, then completely ignores pace of play. Very shortsighted.

Played in June 2013, and wow what a course. Excellent condition, great holes, and great service. It's a challenge. Don't stray from the fairways as the ball is likely lost or OB. It also has fast greens. Probably the best value for money I've had on a golf course of this calibre. If you're golfing in Iowa, make a stop... More

You can make this course as hard as you want with the multiple tee boxes; the combination of trees, water, sand and elevation changes make this a challenging layout from the longer tee areas. Great clubhouse, food and facilities... you will enjoy your day at TCI no matter what you shoot.
