The Harvester Golf Club is a Public, 18 hole golf course located a short drive northeast of Des Moines near Rhodes, Iowa.

The Harvester Golf Club first opened for play in 2000. The course was designed by Keith R. Foster.

The Harvester Golf Club is a high-end public, daily-fee facility featuring a championship 18-hole golf course on land where cows once grazed. The Harvester Golf Course has the elements of a dramatic championship course: visually diverse beauty, varied terrain and natural water features " all in a charming setting. The a course was fitted onto the land, not built upon it. The course stretches over 300 acres and boasts dramatic elevation changes throughout its design (up to 110 feet in some areas). The course plays around Lake Harvester, and there are several small ponds and streams coming into play on the course. The rolling fairways play through natural wetlands and densely wooded areas. The greens are large (averaging 7,500 square feet) and are a challenge to putt. Bunkering is at a minimum, but those that are present are generally large, flat and well placed to reinforce risk/reward play.

The Harvester Tournament Course plays from 5,180 to a whopping 7,365-yards, and there are four sets of tees to challenge all skill levels. From 7,365 yards, the par-72 layout carries a course rating of 76.0 and a slope rating of 140.

The Harvester Golf Course has wide fairways, large fast greens, generous tee time spacing and distraction-free surroundings. This is golf in its purest form.

Tim Day of Gilbert, IA says :
in my opinion, this is the best course in Iowa, with the only viable competition being Glen Oaks in West Des Moines. It is a beautiful course that is challenging and has fantastic greens. Lots of different shots are needed to score well, but the course is pretty wide and accommodates higher handicap golfers. This is just a fantastic course.

Pros: Condition of Course, Layout, Staff
Cons: None worth mentioning
Would Travel: 0-10 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom Line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level, Best course in the area, Expensive, but worth it

Tim Morey of Chicago, IL says :
Harvester is a pretty special round. The 3/4 mile road from the highway to the clubhouse creates an unusual sense of isolation. The layout is stern, with large elevation changes, thick rough, and slick greens. The par 5 15th is just awesome. A must play if in the Des Moines area.

Pros: Condition of Course, Layout, Ambiance, No Houses on Course
Would Travel: 60-120 Miles
Bottom Line: I would play again, Best course in the area, Expensive, but worth it
