Contrasting front and back nines challenge a golfer's ability to adapt: the first round offers broad fairways and rolling hills; the second features narrow links carved through dense woodland.

Ok course, the low land holes are encountering water drainage issues. The driving range is irons only. It took us 5 minutes to find the first tee - it's on the other side of the street opposite driving range well away from putting green. Other than the under repair holes and intimidating 1 handicap hole ten we enjoyed the round.

I lived less than a mile from this course when it opened and I went through its growing pains with no clubhouse and an irons-only range but I loved the course. In 2015 I played it only TWICE due to the condition of the turf. I was told they were fighting a disease. I didn't play Copper for a year... More

Open for those who spray it around a bit, especially on the front. 3. Nice scenery-Course is surrounded by beautiful new... More

Having played quite literally every golf course within 50 miles of Des Moines I have decided to review what I feel is the best and worst courses I have played. Copper Creek gets the distinction of WORST. This course is poorly maintained, with holes that no golf architect in his right mind would ever build. The greens are so bad... More

I like to golf this course several times a year. The course is not too diffucult for novice golfers but tough enough for stronger players to keep coming back. The staff was very friendly and it is usually pretty easy to get a tee time. They have great early season specials too.

Decent courses through the houses. Not a bad place but not great either.
