Just played it for the first time and was amazed, not far from Des Moines, $40 after 3 o'clock. Well worth the short trip, very pretty, very fun, very well maintained. Pretty hard so play forward tees and bring plenty of balls. I will be back soon

The course sports 4 sets of tees: Legend - 5039, Deacon - 6113, Palmer - 6516, and King - 7001. Choose wisely! This track is target golf on steroids. Personally I enjoy target golf but this course is brutally penalizing if you miss any fairway or geen - even by only a few feet. You will find yourself with lies... More

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

ALOT of golf courses in Iowa are like playing on an old converted cow pasture. Not TCI what a beautiful course!!!

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
