Beaver Creek is a very good course for today's rates. I wish it would offer a 27-hole rate so you could play all three nine-hole courses. I don't think they every send you out on the added South Course unless you request to do so. Overall a solid course, though it sits very low so if it has recently rained... More

Very enjoyable course with a nice range of holes and 3 courses to choose from. The course is low lying and if it has rained hard you may want to call for conditions. The price is in the average category as is the clubhouse food. Greens usually are quick and the fairways maintained well.

Brent grass tees, greens, and fairways. One of the best public courses in the greater Des Moines area. West and East courses are the original 18 built in 1991. The south 9, which is the toughest, was added in 2000.

Great golf...3 different 9 hole courses. South and West are my favorite. Make a tee time and off you go for a fun time!

Very substandard, more or less like a grocer catered it and was serving it from a putt putt golf shack to my clientele, While the greens were great the food was out of a sack.

It has been a while since I last played BC. It is maturing very nicely. The course is in very good shape and is very fun. Its not too pricey and they have some great junior rates on weekends. I will definitely be back!

There are 3 nines at Beaver... the best two are the West and the South... they both have a couple of challenging holes and a few holes that will yield birdies with accurate tee shots... the course is usually in decent condition, though the course gets very soft in wet weather (it does not drain well).
