Good golfing in a picturesque setting

This golf course is set in the middle of a garden/ landscape center so the plants, trees, shrubs, flowers, and the like make for fantastic framing of the fairways and greens. The... read more

We (me and my wife) played the front 9 and first 4 holes are straightforward, then number 5 is difficult to tell where you are supposed to hit. i had... More

This golf course is set in the middle of a garden/ landscape center so the plants, trees, shrubs, flowers, and the like make for fantastic framing of the fairways and greens. The course is user friendly and yet challenging with wide fairways and large greens. The entire layout is a fine piece of eye candy! Hit a bad shot...not to... More

I played there last week and as i have said before this place is in awesome shape. The greens were the best i have played on in a long time. They do a great job keeping the leaves cleaned up, i never lost a ball in the leaves. They are always improving something, this time what really stuck out was... More

First of all the golf pro is the nicest guy in the world. He will do anything to make sure a customer is happy. This guy has no idea what he's talking about. They have the best prices in Iowa City. The Course is in great shape, the lay out is beautiful. The staff are always polite. If there was... More

The head pro and tenured staff treat customers very poorly. I recently paid a lot of money to play there, got there early to hit a few practice balls, putt and chip, to prepare for my round and was told the range was closed, because of a putt, chip, & drive event for kids. There were 10 hitting bays open... More

Was traveling through Iowa, and used the Forelinksters.com guide to the best public golf courses to find Pleasant Valley. We were not disappointed, the rates were reasonable, the golf course conditions were good, not great, a little rough around the edges from the winter, and the golf course very challenging, would definitely return again.

Golfed here once with my roommates this past spring. It was early in the season, so there weren't many other golfers, making it a laid back and fun experience. Value was decent if I remember right, probably the best course for its value in the IC area.

This golf course is very challanging since a creek winds through it and if you do not have a long ball range you can end up in the creek several times...Use old balls....lol

This is a very nice course at a resonable price but the best thing about it is the course conditions. Maintainence staff does an extremely good job taking care of the property. I play there quite often and when i go other places i am often dissapointed.
