Detailed description

Hyperion Field Club is a Private 18 hole golf course located in Johnston, Iowa.

The Hyperion Field golf course first opened for play in 1910. The course was designed by Tom Bendelow.

The Hyperion Club was organized as a social club on January 25, 1900. The site for the Hyperion golf course was selected in 1907 and opened in 1910.

In 1992, the club initiated work on a golf course master plan designed by golf course architect, Bob Lohmann. This plan contains various projects to update the golf course. Many of the green surrounds have been updated with new mounding and sand bunkers, new tees were constructed to accommodate a 4 tee system, the 12th green was rebuilt, and a pond was added on the 9th hole and the 14th hole was completely rebuilt.

Hyperion's setting on a hillside overlooking Des Moines, allows them to open the golf course early in the spring and enables the course to drain quickly after a rain. There are very few days in the season when they are unable to play golf.
