Our Golf Course

Briarwood Golf Club is an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Gordon Cunningham. This par 72 course measures over 7000 yards “from the tips” and features bent grass fairways and four sets of tees. Although it is considered one of the top golf courses in the Midwest, it is known for its challenging yet fun layout, while maintaining an appeal to golfers of all abilities. Over the years, Briarwood has been proud to host some of the biggest tournaments in the state of Iowa, such as the Briarwood Amateur, the Allianz Sr. Qualifying Tournament, US Amateur Regional qualifier, and the Iowa Open.

Hole 1 | Par 4

Briarwood's first hole is not your typical "shake hands" starting hole. Long distance and hazards give the golfer a challenge right out of the gate. A pond comes into play left and bunkers right off the tee. Even after a good tee shot, the longest hitters will still need a mid-long iron to reach the green. Note that the bunker short right of the green collects many anxious approaches.


The Practice Facility

A full practice facility including driving range, putting green, and short game practice is available to all golf members. Our driving range is equiped with all weather synthetic turf allowing golfers the ability to use the range even during our wet season.

The Pro Shop

Our full-service pro shop offers a large selection of quality golf gear to keep your game at its best. The friendly and knowledgeable staff makes shopping for your game easy and convenient. Chad Callan, the Briarwood Head PGA Golf Professional, keeps everything from state of the art bags, apparel, balls, and the hottest clubs on the market in stock. Our shop will match prices of other local retailers and we can even place specials orders if there is an item we do not carry. Chad and his team are also happy to schedule a time for private lessons if you are looking to improve any aspect of your game.
