This is by far the Worst coarse near des moines that i have golfed at. Horrible conditions, rude very unclassy employees (especially Bob!). Bob's quote of the day "I have enough money - I don't need yours!" I will update with more information on my experience once my official complaint with the BBB is filed. I would never recommend anybody waste their time with this coarse. Willow Creek coarse is 10 minutes away and 2 dollars more with awesome coarse and wonderful and classy employee's.

This is my home course, but there are enough challenges to keep you coming back. There are harder courses for sure, but the price is sure right here.
