The course is always well manicured and is challenging for all golfers. The clubhouse doesn't have much for food and golf ammenities are limited.

Liked how the greens rolled, some really interesting holes
This is an old course but it holds up with the modern courses very easily. This is more of a shot makers course than a long bomber. The layout is such where your shot position is more critical as the greens will give you a true challenge. There is a reason the Iowa masters are played here.
