Waveland Golf Course celebrated 100 years

in 2001! It is the oldest municipal golf course

west of the Mississippi. This 18 hole course

was built in 1901 and has a traditional layout.

Waveland, probably the nicest municipal course

in the state of Iowa, is located at

4908 University Avenue in Des Moines.



The feature that sets Waveland apart from

the other two Des Moines public courses is

the incredible amount of slope. The entire

course is built on wooded hillsides. The

trees are mature, a given for a course of this

age. As expected, a golfer needs to be accurate at Waveland. The course isn't overwhelmingly long but continuous play in the trees might make it feel that way. For men, the course measures just over 6500 yards. Even with the difficulty of the course there are still over 40,000 rounds of golf played at Waveland annually.

3/10 -

The fringe around the greens had patches of dark green grass growing in the regular grass. There no way you could putt from the fringe. The greens look like they had not been mowed in a couple of days. Over all condition of the course was poor.
