Expensive for the course. The course is not groomed , greens are terrible and the members rude. We followed a six some for 14 holes before they conside red play through. Contradictions in fees on all Internet sites and in clubhouse. Don't waste your time on this one. Save the money and choose another.

Beautiful Country. Peaceful. Pastorial. God's Country. This course is a treasure. Much more enjoyable than the Eagle Ridge Course (way over priced) in Galena. The greens are better; the layout is better, the scenery is pure majesty and the people are top shelf. Can't wait to play it again.

There have been talks of better courses in Iowa, WHERE ARE THEY EXACTLY? Where else can you hear Gaggles of Turkeys? Have experts check pins and see a man named Joseph Smith's Partner snap his odyssey putter over his knee on the 18th hole, after just melting down to LOSE the DTL. It does not help that his partner was Rainman all day long.
If you have never experienced Iowa, if you have never seen a catfish hatchery up close and personal and would like to while enjoying some of the most "challenging" pin placements this world has ever seen all while soaking in the beautiful scenery of the Nam, then Big Rock CC is the place for you. If you like checking pins, and helping to repel squitos through secular methods and ringing the bell at the Bell Hole (#5) then please, come here. If you have any questions about the BIG ROCK CC call a Frey, they know the neighborhood, the fields, all of the above. Thank you!
