Teeing Off at Council Bluffs' Golf Courses

For a supposed golfing backwater in the landlocked Midwest, you may be surprised to know that there are a handful of great golf courses available for play in Council Bluffs. From city skylines and lake views to quiet, semi-private rolling hills, the options are nothing but exceptional. Put your golf game to the test with a round at any of these five conveniently located greens in the Council Bluffs metro.

Dodge Riverside Golf Club

An 18-hole championship course with year-round access and programs for both new and experienced golfers, it's no wonder Dodge Riverside Golf Club was named to Golf Digest's list of best places to play. One of the oldest clubs in the metro area, this well-run and well-cared-for city green offers stunning tree-lined fairways and vistas of the Missouri River. Playing at 6,400 yards long, the course offers a challenge for golfers of all skill levels.

Fox Run Golf Club

Self-proclaimed as the premier semi-private golf facility in Council Bluffs, Fox Run provides a unique golfing experience at an affordable price. Formerly known as Scottish Links, the club offers golfers the best of both worlds: links golf in a parkland setting. Four sets of tees make the course enjoyable for any golf enthusiast, playing over 6,200 yards from the tips. Having a rough day on the fairways? Hit the driving range to perfect that backswing and get your game back to top form. The elaborate practice facility also comes equipped with a chipping green and putting green for golfers to sharpen their skills.

Bent Tree Golf Club

Sweeping, rolling terrain coupled with dramatic elevation changes make Bent Tree Golf Club one of the most breathtaking and formidable courses in the metro area. With more than 225 acres of bentgrass fairways and five sets of tees that stretch the course to over 7,000 yards, the club has the local reputation and striking views to inspire your best game.

Council Bluffs Country Club

One perk to a Council Bluffs Country Club membership? Access to the championship par 71 golf course off the northeastern edge of Lake Manawa. With a full-service driving range and short game practice area, the country club is known for having one of the best junior golf programs available in the area. Golf professionals on staff provide individual and group lessons to help nudge you closer to sinking that ever-elusive hole-in-one.  

Westwood Park

Since 1964, Westwood Park has offered a generous 9-hole layout for golfers looking to up their short game. Whether you're aiming to break your greenside bunker streak or introduce a youngster to the sport, this 9-hole, par 3 course will be a great fit.
