The course it beautiful. It is also very long. With all of the elevation changes it seems quite a bit longer. The course is well maintained. I was there right after a flood and outside of one hole you could barely notice anything happened. The fairways are smooth, the rough is full but not too bad to hit out of. Lots of sand everywhere. The toughest part is when your ball finds the prairie grass. If you can find it you are usually hitting from dirt between two clumps of grass, with no solid footing to be found. Just hit towards the fairway and be happy. Risk taking is rarely rewarded here. Play it safe, and your day will be 10 strokes better. Other notes: they valet your clubs when you get there, nice pro shop, free driving range, on course food is okay, they clean your clubs after the round, and you can pick your clubs up whenever your ready to leave, so you can gamble your night away with no worries. Warning: I went to pick up my clubs and my driver was in the wrong bag. It may have fell out when they were moving them and they just picked it up and put it in the wrong bag but thank god I helped them load it, if not I would have just assumed everything was there and gone home without it.
So we made our first trip to Blue top Ridge Golf Course. What have gotten 5 stars except a couple of things. The fairways were in very good shape, but the greens were horrible. We were at a public course the week before and those greens were a lot better. The thing that upset us the most is that my wife and I were expecting valet parking and club cleaning as I see posted. There was a guy there to pick up our clubs, but had to park our own car and the guy was at least nice enough not to make us walk all the way to the club house. I cant say that for the finish thou. With a wife with MS the course was tough on her and when we dropped our clubs off she had to go the bathroom so we drove the cart to the club house, After using the facilities I asked the guy behind the counter do we leave the Keys in it and he was like ya. It was a long walk back to the car. Sorry to be negative, but was hoping for a little bit more
Definitely the premiere course in Iowa. Course is always in great shape and provides several challenges. IF you can keep the ball in the short grass and out of the multitude of bunkers that seem to be in play on every shot you still face the challenge of the large undulating greens that are amongst the fastest in the state. The staff is amazing and they have a great pro shop and performance studio. Also home to the G.I.V.E. program this is easily one of my favorite courses in the nation
Being a vet I had hoped 2 take advantage of the free lessons & discount play gift but Ive got a prob w/transportation so Im trying 2 find cure!!!
Great golf course there is a lot of elevation and the greens are very tricky and is definetly one of the top golf courses in iowa.

Great course! It costs a bit more for the Iowa City area but will worth the... DRIVE! (Sorry for the golf pun).
With the exception of being told not to steal towels and/of being searched. Overall experience was a delight.
Its expensive and the course is too difficult for most golfers. Greens are not fun.
Awsome layouts. Very tough greens. Good staff. Quick beer cart.
The worst golf course I have played on
Best golf course in Iowa city area
