Beautiful course

Was here watching a golf tournament and was impressed with the course. Very beautiful with lots of shade from the trees. Favorite hole is #13 where you tee off onto an island.

Big time gold course, Home to the Big Ten Hawkeyes. Great bent grass fairways and greens, course in excellent shape. Reasonably priced with cart included. Driving range is fantastic with target greens. Can be a challenge from the tips, very manageable from up front!

Such a wonderful layout and host to many many events. The results is that by the end of season the course was getting tired and a little chewed up. The greens are wonderful and like greased lightning. Go in the late spring or summer for the best experience. It is a "Gotta Go" kinda place. IHG, Rube

Great golf course, brings out the best in you. A must play. Great shape, greens roll fast. Either you play well or it can tear you up. But if you play well you feel like you are on your game and is a good feeling. If you don't hit the fairways course can be very challenging. Good luck on this... More

Finkbine is a beautiful course just down the street from Kinnick Stadium. I prefer Finkbine even over the nearby country clubs. The facilities are outdated, but that's to be expected from a public course. The course itself is well-maintained. A must play!

I enjoyed playing Finkbine for the first time. It is a well maintained public course. It believe it to be the best course in the area, and it is located fairly close The University of Iowa campus.

This golf course is really starting to show its age. I have been here a few times the past couple years and it keeps getting worse. I think the U of I golf team practices here, but they really need to upgrade there facilities
