Patchy forest to the north and 265th Street to the south border Cedar Valley Golf Course, separating the grassy haven from miles of Iowa farmland on the other side. Within the oasis lie ponds that enter play on all but five of the holes, including hole 13, where the green juts out into a large water hazard that regularly swallows up overly-forceful approaches. Players will find themselves facing other risk-reward scenarios throughout their bout with the course, such as on hole 5, where they must either lay up or go for the green, and on hole 16, where they must decide between hitting a 210-yard shot that carries the water or just picking the ball up and carrying it to the hole.

Golfers first teed off at Wahkonsa Country Club in 1967, and since then, the 9-hole, par 72 course has maintained its picturesque layout of rolling greens and cascading fountains. Stretching nearly 7,000 yards from the back tees, the course consistently challenges players with behemoth lengths?including on hole 5, which, at 536 yards, is the longest test players encounter. Away from the links, visits to Wahkonsa Country Club can also include practice swings on the driving range and lunch at the bar and grill.
