"Came from Michigan to play the Des Moines area and REALLY enjoyed myself. The locals I met were amazing. Big Creek is such a great course. It just needs some better signage love and next hole markers, otherwise one of my fave dedicated park courses I've played in the US. Xoxo"

"Super cool course. Not a long course but some super tight and specific gaps that are challenging for all skill levels. Some super hard holes though like 8 and 14! I don’t know how one is supposed to have a legitimate look at birdie on those without 600 foot power."

"Very good course. Reasonably narrow fareways require precision. Some longer holes give big arms an advantage. Courses bend both ways so left handed people are not always at a disadvantage. Tee pads are good. Signs are OK. Challenging for most players. Wish there were signs pointing to next pin, especially on the holes when it isn't close by. Water is a factor on a few holes. Better than the average Iowa course for sure. "
