    Re: Will Iowa have any major golf tournaments in near future

    I doubt DSM Golf hosts again as it was very hard on the property supporting the crowds. Parking lots had to be replaced due to damage afterwards as well.

    I don't think Glen Oaks has what it takes to host a major PGA event and TCI is unlikely as well.

    I just don't see it in the near future.

    While it is a PGA event, it certainly isn't a "major" one. I was assuming OP was looking for one where some name players would be on hand.

    I thought the US Senior Open went pretty well from a fan standpoint.

    Kenny Perry won last year. Zach Johnson is always there.$4,000,000+ should get a few "big" names in town.
    Check the Classic web site occasionally to see who has committed.

    Too many people was the problem and the club had to make a lot of investments it didn't get reimbursed for. I seriously doubt the members want the hassle again even though it was extremely popular from a fan standpoint.

    The original post asked about Iowa. Deere Run is in Illinios.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    There's the Allianz or Principal Classic. Think it's still Principal, but given their financial woes - who knows. Supposed to be the first week of June/last weekend of May - I believe.
