The beautiful game
Des Moines Golf and Country Club has not one, but two courses designed by the legendary golf architect Pete Dye. The 471-acre layout emphasizes the curves and dips of the land. Undulating greens vary in size and pitch. And each bentgrass fairway is blended into its own unique design with 120 bunkers and thousands of trees. All of this creates an exciting challenge for golfers of all levels.
