    Waveland Golf

    Hey just real quick,

    Going to Waveland tomorrow (if the weather participates) for a bachelor party golf outing, & I've never been there.

    What, if any, tips can you give me for the course. Also, are they real sticklers on outside beverages or would that not be a problem?

    Re: Waveland Golf

    Waveland is a fun course but can be very challenging to a beginner. It is a pretty hilly course so you will get a lot of awkward lies that can pose a problem. Don't let hole 3 ruin your day, lots of balls have been lost on that par 5.

    They have never checked my bag for outside drinks but I wouldn't try bringing a case in your bag either. Maybe bring 2 or 3 cans in your bag to get you started and buy the rest from them.

    Be prepared to cuss while putting.

    I played on a really hot day, and that may have baked the greens to the point where they were faster than normal. I remember doing ok from tee to green, but I know I had more 3+ puts than I'd like to admit.

    I just played there about 3 days ago. Course is in good shape. Others have given you the scoup; very hilly don't walk, you will get lots of awkward lies, greens can be very hard which makes putting difficult (fast) but right now are not too bad. There are lots and lots of trees and many with bad angles or lining the fairways. You will get in the trees unless you are a very good golfer; if you do, just cuss and take you medicine its not worth getting upset about cause it happens to everybody. Its actually the course is in really good shape ... have fun !

    Re: Waveland Golf

    You guys are a bunch of Sallys.

    I'm a relatively old man compared to most of you (41) and I walk Waveland all the time. Now for a bachelor party type outing riding is probably a good idea, if simply to make carrying the beer easier but please, it's not like climbing Mt. Everest or something.

    As for the course, it is challenging but if you keep the ball between the trees you can score pretty well. Don't get above the hole on #9, nasty putt coming down that hill. Have a good time (although it's looking a little soggy).

    Re: Waveland Golf

    Hit the Waveland bar (east ~ 2 blocks) afterwards, one of DSM's best dive bars... or Charlies on Grand (300 block, WDM) for some fresh squeezed screwdrivers/greyhounds...
