Field of Dreams: Iowa mansion with private 9-hole golf course could be yours for $5.5 million

January 29, 2024

There ain’t much in Iowa. City living, elevation change, college football teams with functional offenses. All are tough to come by in the Hawkeye State. If you’re looking for corn, caucuses and midwestern mega-mansions with private 9-hole golf courses in the backyard, however, you might just be in the luck.

Enter 7395 N.W. 100th St., the crown jewel in a neighborhood of million-dollar homes just west of Des Moines that just hit the market. According to Golfweek, the 26-acre spread is available through WB Realty Co. and includes six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and a four-car garage, as well as unique amenities like a heated in-ground pool and views of Iowa Capitol Building from the towering second-floor windows. It features a wine cellar, a private beach, and a media room. Everything you need to live a life of total luxury ... including that aforementioned 9-hole track right past the back patio.

The course features nine holes cut from six greens as well paved cart paths and a dedicated cart barn. The course circles the man-made lake and private beach, making it the perfect way to while away a hot summer afternoon, sipping spiked Arnold Palmers and closing deals.

The whole thing can be yours for $5.5 million, which seems like a pretty fair deal to us once you get past the whole “Iowa” thing. But we guess it’s true what they. If you build it, they will come.
