Detailed description of Waveland Municipal Golf Course

Waveland Municipal Golf Course is a Public 18 hole golf course located in Des Moines, Iowa.

The course first opened in 1901. It's the oldest municipal course west of the Mississippi River. The course was designed by Warren Dickinson.

This scenic course is very hilly and features numerous oak trees lining its fairways.  The greens are large, and there are sand bunkers guarding most holes.  This club was originally founded in 1894 and was listed by the USGA as one of the first 100 clubs established in the U.S.

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. The course isn’t overwhelmingly long but continuous play in the trees might make it feel that way. 

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees, the course plays to 6,437 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 5,323 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 3, a par-5 that plays to 585 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 13, a par-3 that plays to 152 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 3, a 585 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 13, a 152 yard par-3.
