We stopped for a round here on our way through Pella. It was in great shape; the carts were comfortable; the cart paths paved. It was not easy, but we enjoyed the terrain changes, forced carries, water and woods. The greens fees were good, especially since we are seniors. We plan to return with friends sometime. When combined with the... More

This course really is a nice gem. Its worth the drive but bring extra balls if you cant hit it straight all the time. Very scenic and a good test for the average golfer. Wish they had a beverage cart person and a ranger. We were there Saturday morning and got stuck behind a group of 5. The round took... More

Disc golf course is there a nice setup very nice nice GPS nice recommendations on the GPS and markings on the course are very well placed. That being said if it is your first time playing this course follow all the recommendations the slopes in the hills mean that you have blind landings everywhere and the ball will run from... More

The course is in excellent shape, and as always, is a tough challenge with the tough layout. Great design and will be back

Groupon has had a great special for playing at Bos Landen. I hadn't played it for years but have played it 3 times this summer. The course was in great shape except for the sand bunkers. They were really in very poor shape. Even so, I would still go back and play it again.

My friends and I play here often and we love the course. But it is very challenging for the higher handicap golfer. I would say it works for those who break 90 regularly but will be torture for those who don't. Lots of interesting holes, lots of risk reward - a shot maker's course. Very reasonable distances from the white... More

This course has been through many owners and management but not sure it will ever work out. The course has par 4s that you can't hit a wood on because of the 90 degree dog legs. No risk reward at all. Has a par 3 that is pitching wedge at most. Cost totally removes the chance for most causal middle... More

Bos Landen was apparently closed last year and was just recently opened mid Summer (June) again by a California company called Warrior. It is still the same great course and they have still maintained it as it had been in the past. The driving range is still open but I don't think it's free, but not 100% sure. The grill... More

Probably among the better public courses available in Des Moines. It has narrow fareways, lots of rolling hills and even in the fareways, few truly flat lies. Well maintained. On the expensive side with cart, but good value for the experience.
