Iowa


There are emeralds lying atop the rich soil of the Great Plains, 9 and 18-faceted gems waiting to be found and enjoyed. They lie alongside Iowa’s creeks, ponds and rivers, woven into the fabric of her gently rolling hills…and we call them golf courses.

In most every metropolitan area of the state, one finds several courses. What may be more surprising are the quality small-town courses. With an active Golf Association (The IGA) and PGA presence, both adults and juniors are constantly and actively involved in the sport.

The golfers of Iowa have seen to it that visitors to the fine state have ample quality selections available to them. Whether you fly into Des Moines or drive through Cedar Rapids, happen to be visiting relatives, staying over for business or passing through the state, there are several courses you won’t want to pass up. There really are gems to be found amidst the cornfields and gentle hills. Take a little of your time while you’re in Iowa and treat yourself to a pleasant surprise. While no one thinks of Iowa as a great golf vacation destination, some of the courses may give you reason to wonder why you didn’t play there long ago Golf Iowa. It’s not just for cornshuckers anymore.
