A Golfer’s Paradise Awaits in Greater Burlington

Golfing in Greater Burlington is an experience not to be missed! From Flint Hills to the north, to the Burlington Golf Club tucked away near the beautiful residences of Sunnyside Avenue, to Spirit Hollow to the south; Greater Burlington offers a variety of golfing experiences for players of all skill levels. Picturesque tree-lined fairways add to the scenery and challenges of each of the courses, while making any golf outing in Greater Burlington worth your time.

Flint Hills Municipal Golf Course is located in the gently sloping hills north of Burlington, in a scenic venue for golfers of all skill levels. This delightful course features a par 71, 6,246 yards of play with watered fairways, and cart paths throughout. Water obstacles come into play on many holes, including the challenging par 3 Hole 8 that requires the entire tee shot over a pond. Several holes include challenging dogleg designs that accentuate accurate tee shots. However, the course also features open fairways that allow for opportunities to recover. After your round of golf, enjoy refreshments in the pro shop with a great variety of food.

Burlington Golf Club is the oldest incorporated golf club west of the Mississippi, tracing its roots back to 1898. At Burlington Golf Club each hole across the 6,515 yards has its own feel, with no two holes the same. That’s what really makes it stand out! The golf course offers elevation changes, narrow, tree lined fairways, and fast undulating greens. While being able to challenge scratch golfers, the course remains very playable and fun for all levels of play. The outstanding course has had the opportunity to host every major championship golf event in the state. Burlington Golf Club is a membership club, but offers privileges for reciprocal members.

Spirit Hollow Golf Course delivers exceptional golf on 6,580 yards of an award winning course. Stay and Play packages include everything onsite with rooms at the LODGE, dining at The Claret Jug, unlimited golf, gaming tables, and much more. You are never far from dramatic views overlooking the golf course. LAMBO’S is the perfect place to relax or indulge after a round of golf. The G.G. Pavilion is a great location to host your next company retreat or family get-together. Spirit Hollow is the ideal getaway for golfers, romantic escapes, a girls or guys weekend, and even corporate functions.

Challenges await golfers on each course, along with scenic vistas, the rolling hills of Southeast Iowa and exceptional services. Be sure to visit each course’s website for season dates, pricing and tee times. Come experience a golfer’s paradise in Greater Burlington!

A special thank you to Joe Butler, PGA Golf Pro at Burlington Golf Club; Greg Mason, Golf Professional at Spirit Hollow Golf Course; and Scott Ickes, avid golfer at Flint Hills Golf Course for providing information on each golf course. Visit for more information on Greater Burlington.
