Walked by one, never been in one luckily. Back to the topic at hand! WL is not the best course! Its long, hard, and curved, like peoples' cocks, but that doesn't make it the best!

They are doing fundraising including a grant right now and hope to get course in Kenue Park this year. I roughed out a Gold level course (par 59-60) last summer to give them a conceptual idea of possibilities. Rolling terrain with one useful hill, about 1/3 open and the rest with mature oaks spaced similar to GV and mostly mowed.

Somewhat off-topic but previous poster's have literally defined the best courses in the nation at Highbridge Hills. Thanks again Chuck (and Houck? :))

Houck visited Highbridge during the first Mid-Nats event and had some suggestions for rerouting on Granite that we had been grappling with. That's about it for his design contributions there. He helped me shape hole 5 at Steady Ed at the IDGC which is one of the signature holes there.

If West Lake was 18 holes it would be the best course in Iowa no doubt. And top 5 in the Midwest. A few of my other favorites are J&B/Graceland, Middle, Indian Hills, Shaver, Peninsula, Walnut, Pickard and Colfax.

Indian Hills Comm College should be considered in this conversation given the criteria - extremely fun and challenging course!
