Detailed description of Wildwood Municipal Golf Course | Wildwood Golf Course

Wildwood Municipal Golf Course is a Public, 9 hole golf course located in Charles City, Iowa.

The course first opened for play in 1917. The course was renovated in 1975 by Charles Calhoun.

The course plays to a 9-hole par of 36 and a maximum 9-hole distance of 2,837 yards.

Wildwood has history, and driving into Wildwood is like driving into times past. Wildwood is one of only a handful of golf courses nationwide on the National Register of Historic Places. 

The clubhouse dates from the 1920's and once was used to house prisoners of war during World War II. Many of the structures on the golf course and the adjacent grounds were built during the World War II.

Wildwood's age means the trees along the fairways are now old growth big adding to the ambiance and challenge. Several streams also add to the challenge and place a further emphasis on accurate shot-making.

The greens are large and hold shots very well. The greens are smooth, putts hold the line well.

The most difficult hole by handicap is the ninth, a 377-yard dogleg left par four with a creek that guards the front and right of the green.

tight course that demands some decision making. Can't just pull out the driver on every tee box. Fun course to play

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
