Reviewed January 19, 2011

Waveland is the oldest continuosly in operation golf course west of the Mississippi. The indigenous old growth oak trees border or line most fairways. It is a beautiful course with many hills and un-even lies, large greens and moderately generous fairways. Some ten years ago a watering system was added, so course conditions have improved dramatically. The bunkers could use some TLC, but this magestic old course will test your game, in spite of it's relatively short stature. The old tudor style clubhouse fits well with the course. Be ready to hit it straight, and work on playing from un-even lies and you will be prepared for Waveland. For years known as one of the finest tests of golf in Des moines.
