    Course Conditions as of 10/5/2014
    Gates closed Sunday, Oct 05 2014. (only gate is the gate from NW Beaver and no parking at the gate) Gates reopen Wed Apr 15 2015. Baskets have remained in place in years past. Deadly serious caution in the off season due to permit hunting on the course. It is certainly possible that parking and cutting through ajoining developements could become trespass, loitering, nuasance, ect.. fines. In the small neighborhoods it is blatently obvious what vehicles are parked on the street to hike into the closed parkland.

    Description: Army Corps of Engineers park on Saylorville Lake. Mix of open and wooded holes, elevation, great balance of left to right & right to left holes. Gates are locked for mid October to late April.

    Sprawling layout, large teepads, clean modern restrooms, soda vending machine, ample trash/recycle bins, and water spigots/fountains on course. Beware of cliffs on hole #3 to your right and some very tight paths 10, 14, and 15. Have a map handy as there are some walks between holes.
