Detailed description of Burlington Golf Club

Burlington Golf Club is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Burlington, Iowa.

Burlington Golf Club is the oldest continuously operating golf club west of the Mississippi River. The Club's first course opened for play in 1899 with 9 holes. In 1968, the Club purchased the public Crystal Springs Links to the east plus some additional land to the north. In 1971 a new 18 hole course was finished and opened for play. The 18-hole course was designed by Ben Knight.

The course was built on hilly terrain, so expect uneven lies.  Water hazards come into play on a number of holes, placing a premium on shot accuracy. 

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees, the course plays to 6,529 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 5,482 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 5, a par-5 that plays to 550 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 3, a par-3 that plays to 158 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 4, a 443 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 13, a 164 yard par-3.
