    Course Conditions as of 7/12/2018
    Hole 3 is unplayable due to new plantings of trees. Erosion cliff hazard on three. 9 long likely to remain unplayable and marshy this summer. Mowing reasonable this year for the park.

    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.
