    Practice greens by the Armory....

    Are they still there and kept up well for public use? I used to use them as a student, but almost ten years has now passed since I graduated & I wanted to head up from Des Moines some day to get a bunch of practice in. thx

    I don't know. I graduated in 1991. I used to throw my golf bag over my shoulder and get on my bike and ride up there to get a bunch of practice in. I loved it!

    I know the band practice field is in that area now. I’m not sure if the practice greens are still there or if they had to be removed. I will be going by that area later today so I will try and remember to check it out and report back.

    They aren't in good shape... at all.

    Or the ones I saw at least.

    I think there is only one left there, and it is not in the best condition

    I'll try to swing by there tomorrow morning and look at them, then I'll throw a text your way.

    Re: Practice greens by the Armory....

    I didn't notice any flags to mark the holes out there today. But I don't know if they leave those up over the summer or just put them out for classes.

    I thought about getting out and walking around, but decided it was too hot out. The south part of that area is the band practice field, but I don't remember how far north the golf area went exactly. Sorry I can't be more help.
