Des Moines Golf and Country Club is situated on 475 rolling acres and features two 18-hole championship golf courses as well as tennis, swimming and recreational programs. Facing declining social membership, the Club moved to update its aquatic and tennis facilities in an effort to engage more guests.
The existing tennis building, pool house and wading pool were demolished to make way for a new Pool and Tennis Pavilion that features locker rooms, a tennis pro shop, offices and a seasonal cafe. The facility was sited to create a separate aquatic area, and a new wading pool and interactive splash park were added. The project involved relocating the playground and future phases included water slides and courts covered for winter play.
