Description

Waveland Golf Course celebrated 100 years in 2001! It is the oldest municipal golf course west of the Mississippi. This 18 hole course was built in 1901 and has a traditional layout. Waveland, probably the nicest municipal course in the state of Iowa, is located at 4908 University Avenue in Des Moines.

The feature that sets Waveland apart from the other two Des Moines public courses is the incredible amount of slope. The entire course is built on wooded hillsides. The trees are mature, a given for a course of this age. As expected, a golfer needs to be accurate at Waveland. The course isn’t overwhelmingly long but continuous play in the trees might make it feel that way. For men, the course measures just over 6500 yards. Even with the difficulty of the course there are still over 40,000 rounds of golf played at Waveland annually.
