Sunny Brae Golf & Country Club -- Sunny Brae Delight
Review by: Ed Fox Beautiful golf course with great oak and maple trees nestled along the Cedar River. Number 2 is a up hill par four with the second shot to a blind green atop a limestone bluff and rated on of the toughest in Iowa. Number 5 you tee off a bluff and over the trees to another hidden green with the river menacing on the right. Six is a short par 3 over the river with the green well protected by huge oak trees. You walk over a swinging bridge to reach the green and 7th tee. Tee back over the river to number 7 and follow along through #8. Number 9 is a short par 5 with OB on the right and huge trees on both sides of the fairway. The small sloping green sits atop a bluff and demands a great approach shot. If you tend to hit the ball to the right bring an extra sleeve or two as holes 3 thru 9 have woods, the river, OB, or all of the above to gather all shots off line. It is a great short couse that will challenge the best yet reward those who hit it staight and bring their short game with them. Give it a try, you will enjoy your time.

Toad Valley Public Golf Course -- A wonderful time
Review by: Bae My dad has golfed at toad valley for years and has a season pass. Now that my brother and I have taken up golf again, we decided to go and check out the haven that is toad valley. The course is beautiful! Rarely here in the Des Moines area do you get to see so much nature on the golf course and that makes it such a relaxing and intimate experience. The course is tough for beginners as you have plenty of chances to hit the ball in another fairway or into the water, but that's what we all go out for right? We did encounter a very rude patron there who told us we had no right to be on the course and didn't know any etiquette but hey, I found out he was wrong so I can't wait to meet up with him again. He did make the experience not as great as it could have been. On the other hand he did push me to play better that day. Out of all the non private courses in the Des Moines area, I rank toad valley as one of the best.
