A little disjointed
Pros: -Large concrete tee pads (except for #4)
-Map is OK
Cons: -Strange layout (from past review cut from 18 to 9)
-No tee pad for #4
-No signs at the tee other than a number
Other Thoughts: Turkey Creek DGC is located within the Coralville Reservoir project for the Army Corps. From a past review this looks like a previous 18 hole cut to 9. That shows in the disconnect for a third of the holes. Holes 1 and 2 play, then there is a long walk for 3, 4 and 5. The map helped locate the tee for #4 which did not have a pad (all the others did.) 6 though 9 play nicely back near 1 and 2. The course did have some of the largest tee pads I've seen, both wide and long. This is an OK course, sounds like it was much more interesting in its 18 format. You are better off playing Sugar Bottom or a couple of the courses in Iowa City/Coralville. OK (with a map in hand) if you are needing a fix for a 9 hole course, but I probably will not play again.

Down to 9 holes
Other Thoughts: I first played Turkey Creek DGC in June 2016, when it was a 18-hole layout...
Sometime after that, it was closed (temporarily) and only recently reopened, but in a modified 9-hole format.
The remaining 9 holes are fun and vary in length and shot shaping requirements, but
the removed, now-extinct holes were significantly more scenic, challenging, and enjoyable.
Hopefully there are plans to reinstall more holes,
but until then, I will look to play elsewhere.
For those familiar with the old, 18-hole format...
