Default Cedar Rapids/Iowa City area Courses

I am taking a little weekend trip to Iowa to play Wildcat Bluff. Looks like there are some decent courses in the general area. I will be staying in Cedar rapids over night. I will have time to play 2-3 courses in addition to Wildcat.

The question I have is for the locals or people that have frequented the area. Which other ones are considered the best in that area? if you had to pick 3 courses, which would they be? I have my eye on a couple but Id rather get a real life opinion from someone.

Thanks

Wildcat is great. If you want two more, I'd play Shaver in Cedar Rapids for sure, then either Sugar Bottom or Turkey Creek in Iowa City/North Liberty. Turkey is reverting back to nine holes at the end of September

Is the change for Turkey temporary?

Jones and Legion are both worth playing as well.

Nope, permanent...I know most of/if not all of the back 9 is getting pulled due to erosion per the army corps. I don't know if they are keeping the front as is or reworking some of the holes, but there will still be nine holes. The new prodigy baskets are getting moved to Sugar though.

Awesome. Thanks. Are either worth playing over turkey? I am for sure going to be playing wildcat, shaver and sugar so I will prolly only have time for one more.

Those are both good courses as well, Jones is kind of wide open on a big hill, but it's still fun. Legion can be tough to navigate if you've never been there, but a good mix of open and wooded shots. Personally I prefer Turkey, but you can't go wrong either way.

I'm more familiar with Iowa City/North Liberty restaurants/bars. Reds in North Liberty, Big Grove Brewery in Solon, and 30 Hop in Coralville are really good beer/food spots...30 hop is probably my favorite of the three with Big Grove a close second. Lion Bridge in CR makes good beer, but the food and atmosphere aren't great.
