River Valley Golf Course

Locally family owned & operated since 2004.

River Valley Golf Course is open to the public and offers 18 fun yet challenging holes for golfers of all abilities. This Par 72 course is laid along the scenic Raccoon River Valley. Designed by Lowell Erdman, this course has large greens which give many great looks each round. Come on out and see why River Valley is, "Well Worth The Drive!"

It's going to be a beautiful next couple days! Come take advantage of it before the rain comes this weekend!

[03/24/19]   If you’re bracket looks like mine, you should be booking your tee-time!

[03/21/19]   With some help from a few neighbors, we were able to get some carts up to the clubhouse for opening day tomorrow! We have been working hard this week and are hoping to get the back 9 open as well tomorrow. Hopefully we will see you all out here soon to start this season off!

We are excited to be back out on the course trying to get it ready for play! The Back 9 is going to depend on the flooding, but we are planning to at least open the Front 9 this weekend!

Spring Break Update from River Valley:
Guess what hole this is? Hint, it’s not #12!

Who’s ready to add your name to history! Our Spring League sign-up list is filling up quickly with contenders so contact us now to lock in your team’s spot!

With another 6-10” of snow forecasted, I am choosing to stay positive and think about golf! While supplies last, I am offering $10 off our current stock of Titleist ProV1(x) & AVX dozens. Give me a call or text to arrange a time to come get your early season golf balls! (515)978-8290 ~Curt

[12/18/18]   I’m sure I am the only one with some Christmas shopping left to do, but just in case we wanted to extend a deal to anyone still needing to finish their lists.

To wrap up our 15th year, we are offering 15% off all River Valley Apparel! If you prefer gift certificates, we are offering $15 off all $100 gift certificate purchases!

We can be available for the next two days by appointments for your convenience.

Happy holidays!!!!!!

[11/08/18]   We were really hoping to get a few more nice days out of this Fall, but it looks like the weather is not going to cooperate with us yet again this season. We are going to put the course to bed for Winter, and try to get a few last projects in before what looks like the cold temps are here to stay.

We are so very thankful for everyone that supported us for our 15th season out here and we hope to see you all out here again for an early Spring next year!!!!

Thank you again, and have a great (hopefully short) Winter!

[11/05/18]   It was a cold one today, but we really appreciate everyone that came out here for some fun on the course! The 8” cups helped make it a great day despite the weather. Thanks again for helping us wrap up our 15th season!!!!

[11/04/18]   It seems that the rain has stopped just in time for a fun 8” Cup Chilli Open! Bundle up and come help us wrap up the season! I promise the chili will warm you right back up after!

[10/31/18]   Don’t let the weather scare you away from some 8” cup Scramble fun! Give us a call now to lock in your team’s spot!
Happy Halloween!

[10/27/18]   As I prepare for one of my favorite Chilli Open formats, I am curious what everyone else thinks makes for a more difficult pin location!

Misery&Bliss Weekend is here!

With only two Chilli Open Sundays to go before our drawing, now is the time to get in on this great raffle opportunity!

The course is loving this sunshine! Hopefully you can come out and soak up some of these rays yourself!

[10/14/18]   It looks like it’s going to be chilly, so we will have some warm chili tomorrow! Come join the fun!

We are finally back open after a wet week, and Ellie is wondering where all the golfers are at... and probably wondering why she hasn’t gotten too many belly rubs lately!

Stop out for a quick round today, and don’t forget to sign up for our Chilli Opens that are every Sunday in October! Check out our website for more info!

** Hwy 169 North of Adel is unfortunately closed again due to water over the road. Hopefully it recedes soon! **

[10/07/18]   It was a soggy day today, but we had a fun day on the course with our first Chilli Open! Thanks to all those that stuck it out! Hopefully the weather will improve as we continue the outings each Sunday.

Tomorrow is looking like a great day for some chili! I am adding a little extra heat in one batch for those wanting some spice to warm them up from the inside! Spots are still available for anyone looking to join us for some fun tomorrow.

We are excited to announce a fun Fall Raffle at the clubhouse to close out this season. One person will win this awesome USA Staff Bag and another will win Bridgestone golf balls for a year! Entries will be doubled when purchased at our Chilli Opens and open through our 8" Cup Scramble Chilli Open November 4th.

It is crazy to think, but we are just a couple weeks away from starting our series of Chilli Opens for our 15th Season Wrap-up! Start getting your team together and sign-up early as spots are already filling up. We have some fun formats planned this year so please check out our website for more details.

Moments like this make working late great!

Congrats Brad Campbell on your Ace! Hole #16 with a 5-iron for an impressive Hole in One! Thanks for playing River Valley for this special occasion! 8/26/18

[08/10/18]   What a great day to be a Tiger! Thanks to everyone that came out to support and celebrate the ADM Alumni today at our annual outing! It was a great day and I think it is safe to say fun was had!

[07/02/18]   It was a beautiful day, if only we could have played some golf. The course has soaked in most of the standing water, and we are planning to open back up for play tomorrow. We will be asking for limited cart travel and extra care out on the course to keep things looking nice. Thank you, and we are looking forward to seeing you out here soon!

[07/01/18]   Unfortunately, we have just gotten way too much rain tonight to be able to open the course up for play tomorrow. We are going to be watching it closely to hopefully resume play again as soon as possible! Thanks for the understanding!

Starter Ellie is ready on the first tee! Give us a call or get your tee-time online now before they are full!

Days like this are made to play some golf!

Our ladies league starts tomorrow! If you want to sign up either call, email, or come in at 5pm on Thursday, so we can get you signed up and set up to play! ⛳️🏌🏻‍♀️

💥We are OPEN!!💥 The grass is green, the birds are chirping and we are glad to see the mercury is finally starting to move in our favor! Go online or give us a call today to book your next tee time, and let's celebrate Spring finally being here!

We’re OPEN today!! Come out and enjoy the decent temperatures before they disappear for the weekend! ⛳️

[04/02/18]   Even though the weather doesn’t exactly feel like it, our Men’s Spring League is just around the corner! We have one team spot that just opened up if you want to join the fun this season. We potentially have an individual looking to pair up if you don’t have a partner. For more details, please reach out to us as soon as possible since we only have one spot remaining.

[04/01/18]   From our family to yours, HAPPY EASTER!!! Most seasons, we would love nothing more than to have you all our here searching for your golf ball like it’s an Easter Egg Hunt but the weather has forced us to be closed for the day this year. Hopefully the weather will finally get in line with our hopes so we can finally start enjoying Spring!

[03/30/18]   We are still trying to finish mowing our last few greens, but we are trying to open up the course tomorrow. Mother Nature isn’t helping us much but we figured tomorrow would be a Good Friday to start our 15th season! We are excited to be seeing you all out with us soon!

Thanks to our new blower, we have cleared the first layer of sand and cores off the greens! We have a little ways to go yet before they are ready for play, but this was a great first step towards opening up the course soon!

[03/23/18]   It is difficult to think we are getting close to the beginning of our Spring Men’s League! We currently have just one more team slot available if you are interested. Give us a call or send a message to get in on this season’s fun!

We were definitely hoping for more green than we got for St. Patrick’s Day. We are continuing to work hard to get the course ready for our 15th season but need some help from Mother Nature! Have a happy and safe holiday and hopefully we will see you all out here soon!

A very Merry Christmas to you and your family on this beautiful white day!

[12/22/17]   If you are still looking for those last minute gift ideas, please feel free to contact us! We have many great golf items in our shop, or you can always get them a gift certificate! We are going to be around up to Christmas, so just email or message us to setup a time to stop out.

[11/23/17]   From our family to all of yours, HAPPY THANKSGIVING! We are very thankful to everyone who came out to enjoy our course in 2017 and are excited for the opportunity to see what great things are coming in 2018!

We have some more great prizes for our bonus Chilli Open, including a mizuno hybrid/iron combo set! The weather looks to be a great day for the wrap up of the season and hopefully you can join us for some fun!

Hopefully you can join us for a fun scramble to wrap up our 2017 golf season!

[10/29/17]   The 8” cups granted an impressive 20 under today for our 5th Chilli Open! We have been having a lot of fun so far that we have decided to host one more before we close down the course! Hopefully you can join us for one last day of fun on the course in 2017!

[10/29/17]   It’s going to be cooler tomorrow, but the 8” cups are always worth it! Only 2 team slots available if you haven’t signed up yet. Give us a call now to lock in your team spot!
