Golf in Des Moines


Golfers can enjoy rounds of golf at A.H. Blank, Waveland, and Bright Grandview.  All three City of Des Moines public golf courses have affordable rates and vary in course design, ranging from tree placement and sand traps to green size, which offers golfers a different experience each round. 


Commonalities of all three courses include Fat Joe's Pizza, GPS systems in carts at Waveland and Blank and free sledding during the winter months.  Besides being used for the usual corporate outings, tournament and every day rounds of golf, all three golf courses can be rented for our wedding, birthday party or holiday et together.
