Thanks to COVID-19, golf has officially made a resurgence! The best news about that is that we have AMAZING courses in rural Pottawattamie! I have to say they are under-used gems! The best part is that it’s a perfect time to get that tee time (not required) in for Father’s Day! Plus, I have coupons for you to use!
Talk about great timing, right?
So let’s chat about a couple of the courses you need to know about!
First up, TRA! Otherwise known as the Treynor Recreation Area. The course is beautiful and extremely well-tended. The greens are fabulous and the view around the golf course is so picturesque year-round. I personally love the view of the corn fields, the shade of the trees, and their little bridges. There’s actually a creek that runs through it. It is a 9-hole course with a par-36. They boast of it being a 2,966 yard course and the fairways and greens are irrigated to perfection. They say they have some “challenging” water traps and trust me, they are! I may, or may not have, at one point, put a golf ball into a bank about 4 inches deep! However, I’m sure you’re a far better golfer! Lol.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention their club house, too! They serve up some great food and offer a fresh salad bar, too. So you can get your exercise and your veggies! (Or you can enjoy your golf cart, adult beverages, and bar food faves, if you prefer to roll that way!)
The best part is that they have generously offered up a one-time coupon for 20% off your green fees! Just show this coupon to get your one-time discount!
The other course I’d like to tell you about is the Oakland-Riverside Golf Course! The 9-hole Oakland Course is a 2,418 yard course that’s par-34. With a dog-leg and rolling hills, it’s not known to be an easy course (I’ve played my share of rounds and I can attest to that), but it is certainly a beautiful one! Set next to a backdrop of corn and bean fields, the course is a quiet one started by founders looking forward to the future of their town. Although the course went through some transition a few years ago and turned public, the course is now back in its prime. Don't be fooled by the par-34, it's a course you won't want to miss!
Also of note, the interior of the clubhouse was completely remodeled this past spring and it boasts of a gorgeous bar and all your favorite food and drinks. The Clubhouse also serves steak sandwiches on Thursday and Friday nights!
If you’re looking for a Father’s Day gift, gift cards are available! Plus, the Oakland Course has a Buy 5, Get 1 Free card that is all yours if you’d like to purchase a set of green fees for that dad or grandpa in your life! Just ask for it upon arrival!
Truly, I can’t say enough about these 2 courses! We are so blessed to have mature, tree-lined, deep green courses in our county! It’s easy to take them for granted, but with social distancing, here is your chance to re-connect or discover what we have available!
Plus, Father’s Day Weekend just got a little more exciting!
