I was curious if the Turkey reviewer was from the Midwest? My understanding was that all of the Central Iowa golf courses suffered major, weather related damage in 2010. I played in late October and the fairways had all filled in to near perfection and all but one tee box was open. The golf course didn't tell me about how nice the fairways had come back when I made my reservation though.

8/24/10 - Played there two days ago. The MOST disgusting golf experience of my 30 years of playing golf all over the country. ENTIRE fairways, and tee boxes were barren of grass. Pathetic substitute tees and horrible greens. I would not play there again if it was free - and they did not warn us about the conditions when reservations were made. DO NOT PLAY THERE!!!!

Nice course. Has a few different holes that you have to hit across bodies of water. There are no bunkers however. They have a great early Monday special where if you book your tee time online before 3:00 pm the green fees are only $5.00.

Nice clubhouse, ok driving range, nice minigolf; course is only mildly challenging (hey, I didn't lose a ball despite a 113 my first round of the season, LOL). I can say with certainty that this course is very unforgiving to a golfer with a severe slice off the tee. Ouch.

Great course. It has a good amount of rolling hills and water hazards. I didn't loose too many balls on this one. The clubhouse is nice. It has a good driving range and even a minature golf course.

Toad Valley is an extremely fun and unique course. The twilight rate for this course is great. The scenery and design of this course is also very good. This course is played a lot and the fairways and greens tend to show a lot of play. A plus for this course is a mini golf course attached to the regular course.

Great Course, Even in the Winter

This course looked and played amazingly well, considering it was December 14th. It was an unseasonably warm day, but considering that it was below freezing just a few days previous (and snow just a few weeks previous), the course was in very good shape. The clubhouse was under renovation today, but that speaks well for the direction the course is taking in the future. Since only a few courses in the Des Moines area stay open year round, I can very strongly recommend this course for another rare warm day, and probably on all the nice summer days, too.
