Countryside Golf Course’s 18-hole layout takes golfers across 160 acres of bucolic, gently undulating Iowa countryside. The 6,366-yard horticultural oasis challenges golfers from the moment they stake their tree slivers into the soil of the first tee box, which plays into 574-yard par 5 featuring a subtle dogleg-right and a green guarded by sand and water on either side to form the course’s hardest-rated hole. Water comes into play on seven holes—including six of the first nine holes—placing a high premium on precise approach shots and ties to Poseidon’s family tree. Pendulous players loop the Bent grass circuit astride a sprightly golf cart, which helps hunt down wayward drives while daydreaming about a dream job as a Mars rover.

Countryside Golf Course
Countryside Golf Course's 18-hole layout rolls across 6,366 yards of the Iowa countryside, but it's the first 574 yards that immediately catch golfers' attention. The course challenges players from the moment they stake their tree slivers into the soil of the first tee box, where they look out onto the course's hardest-rated hole: a 574-yard par 5 that doglegs to the right towards a green guarded by sand and water on either side. The difficult opener sets the tone for the rest of the course, where water comes into play on seven holes—six on the front nine—and all but one hole features at least one greenside bunker.
After their round, players who have not spoiled their appetite by grazing on the course's lush bent grass can head toward the clubhouse for a post-round meal or drink. At the wooden u-shaped bar, guests can crack open a beer and refuel with hot dogs and sandwiches.
