Bright  Grandview Golf Course, built in 1902,  is one of the oldest courses in the county.  Bright Grandview is located at 2401 East 29th street.  The course is adjacent to Grandview Park.


With its age, Bright Grandview is unique and does not have the look of most modern courses.  The layout is quite flat, making it a favorite for older golfers. Trees are the biggest hazard at Bright  Grandview, but even with that it is not a difficult course to handle. Although it is not a very long course, Bright Grandview's small to medium size greens pose a challenge to some individuals. The fairways are wide so you can take a full swing and not worry about losing your ball. If your aim or execution is off, it is possible to hit the ball into another fairway and still have a pretty good look at your own pin.


There is one pond at Bright  Grandview directly in front of the tee box on the par three, 11th hole. Golfers must attempt to clear the water and get the ball to settle on the green. Hole number six is the most difficult hole at Bright Grandview. It is a long par four with bunkers guarding the green. Even though Bright Grandview is not made up of primarily hills, there are three holes with blind tee shots. The only par five for men is the 17th hole which is uphill.


The course is fully irrigated in its fairways and the greens are in excellent condition.  Another plus about Bright Grandview is that it is not as long as the newer courses.  This is advantageous for those players who may not have great distance off the tee.  The total yardage of the course for men is 5422 and 5191 for ladies.  There are a lot of juniors and seniors who play Bright Grandview for this reason.  The average round of 18 holes takes around three and a half hours to complete, which is significantly less than other public courses in the area. Often, golfers will have their best scores at this course.


At the club house, there is a full line of golf equipment including balls, clothing, gloves, and shoes.  The fees and membership costs are very reasonable for an 18 hole golf course.

SoccerGolf

SoccerGolf, initially founded in Europe, has made its way to Des Moines! Played with size 5 soccer balls and 21 inch diameter holes, participants follow many of golf's traditional rules and etiquette guidelines. Just like regular golf, players can walk or ride and are encouraged to wear classic golf attire.

 

Every Saturday and Sunday for the remainder of the 2014 golf season, players can play on the area’s first SoccerGolf course at Bright Grandview Golf Course from Noon – 4:00 p.m. Green fees are $12 per person and soccer balls are available to rent for $3 each. Motorized carts are also available for an additional fee.
