Cedar Pointe Golf Course?s 18-hole layout unfurls across 6,647 yards of pristine fairways cleaved into a landscape of mature trees and rough-side waterways. The course eases golfers into the round with eight relatively straightforward holes before testing swings at the ninth hole, where tee shots must clear a pond on their multishot journey to a windswept flagstick 543 yards in the distance. The intervening water at the end of the front nine foretells an upsurge in aquatic obstacles in the course?s second act, where a slender pond runs between the 12th and 13th holes and two ponds loom menacingly at the junction of the 10th, 11th, and 18th holes, tempting many hydrophobic golf balls to forge doctor?s notes allowing them to stay in the dry bag. An adjacent driving range prepares players and gun-shy three-woods before the round, and a revamped clubhouse and bar await just beyond the 18th green, where pin-hunting posses can recap their round over a frothy beverage.

Since opening in 1969, the nine-hole course at Woodward Golf Club has showcased a golfing oasis just off the southwest corner of Woodward. With few trees scattered about the course and forgiving fairway designs, golfers can unleash power off the tees without fear of losing their shots to dense forests filled with thick brush and thin trolls hungry for golf balls. A recreational pool awaits near the clubhouse, ready to cool down bodies overworked by the heat or the strenuous struts that follow stressful putts. Course at a Glance: * Nine-hole, par 35 course * Total length of 3,022 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 68.1 from the back tees * Course slope of 109 from the back tees

Cleaved through the bucolic terrain of Ledges State Park, Honey Creek Golf Club?s 18-hole course bounds over contoured terrain amid prairieland flora and mature tree lines. The challenging par 71 starts fast, with water in play on four holes on the front nine, including a forced carry on the second tee that will punish shaky swings and drivers that forgot to stretch before the round. Multiple dog-leg holes cater to players who can work their drives both ways, helping them find the bentgrass fairways and avoid the arbors and brambly prairie grass of the rough. A difficult layout for those teeing up from the back tees, the course features five tee options to make the round surmountable for players of any ability. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par 71 course Length of 6,805 yards from the farthest tees Course rating of 70.5 from the farthest tees Slope rating of 131 from the farthest tees Five tee options Link to scorecard

Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad & Museum?s campus features 9,000 square feet of exhibits, classrooms, and libraries dedicated to all eras of Iowa?s railway history. But the museum campus is one part of the organization?s attractions, since the it keeps actual 1920s-era coach cars coasting the tracks, chugging past sights and recreating the experience railway riders have enjoyed for nearly 100 years. The ancient engine follows the tracks in the Des Moines River Valley, taking visitors to old coal towns or allowing them to soak in scenic views. After their ride, travelers can return to the museum, where they can view track equipment, ogle dining car china, or learn why one has to wear coveralls to steer a train.
