Program Description

Event Details

Waveland Golf Course in Des Moines celebrated 100 years in 2001, and is the oldest municipal golf course west of the Mississippi. Joe Wandro’s day job is designing and building golf courses around the country, and got inspired by playing on Waveland to learn more about the course. He'll talk about the history of Waveland and the influence the design has on courses today.

This joint library-Historical Society event is free and open to the public thanks to the support of West Des Moines Historical Society Members, EMC Insurance Foundation, the West Des Moines Library Friends Foundation and the Iowa Arts Council.

All Iowa Files programs will be live streamed on the West Des Moines Historical Society’s YouTube channel and all videos will be closed captioned.
