    Course Description: Originally organized in 1897 as a private country club. Few, if any, private organizations have had a more turbulent history than the Des Moines Golf and Country Club, which has stubbornly fought its way through catastrophe, depression and the pains of progress to stand today on the threshold of its one-hundred and twenty first year. The Club is a strong, outstanding organization, loyally supported by its largest membership in history. In 1967 the club moved to its current location and hired Mr. Pete Dye to design and develop our 36-hole country club. In 2011 Mr. Dye and his associate architect Mr. Tim Liddy came back to DMGCC to do a master plan renovation which was completed in 2017.
