WAVELAND GOLF COURSE

4908 University Avenue, Des Moines, IA 50311 Directions

Since 1901

Here’s The Deal:
"
Waveland Golf Course is the oldest golf course in the municipality west of Mississippi. The feature that sets Waveland apart from the other two Des Moines public courses is the incredible slope. Even with the course's difficulty, there are still over 40,000 rounds of golf played at Waveland annually. The course measures slightly more than 6500 yards. The clubhouse is a red brick antique building of the 1940s, with outstanding food and a large banquet hall and a pro shop. Approximately 70 percent of the golfers in Waveland use one of the 72 golf carts on the course, which is understandable considering the hilly terrain. The clubhouse has a comfortable and fun environment, ideal for chatting with fellow golfers or checking out the new equipment. Seasonal passes are available.
