BLUE TOP RIDGE
PLAY THE LONGEST PAR 5 IN IOWA ON THE BLUE TOP
RIDGE GOLF COURSE
By Ken Liebeskind
Forty miles from Iowa City, nestled among the corn fields, is the Riverside Casino and Golf Resort, which features the Blue Top Ridge Golf Course, a 7,505 Rees Jones monster that features two par 5s longer than 615 yards, including the 665 yard 16th, which is Iowa's longest golf hole.
The Blue Top Ridge Golf Course was ranked as the 5th best new course in 2009 by Golf Digest and one of the top 10 new courses to play by Golf Magazine. The challenging course is set on three different landforms.

The front nine begins on a prairie before descending at the 4th hole to a river plain, with three holes set on the Iowa River. The back nine is carved into a hillside with a dramatic finishing stretch that includes 16, where a creek splits the landing areas.
....While two par 5s exceed 615 yards, the most difficult may be number 12, a 552 yard par 5 that proceeds straight uphill with a creek cutting through the fairway before you start your climb.
What's the best answer to the long holes at the Blue Top Ridge Golf Course? How about the long distance driver that can't be beat. It's the Controller 460cc driver from www.scientificgolfclubs.com, which features a max size club head coated with an armor-piercing metal once used on military missiles that's twice as hard as steel and 70 percent harder than titanium. This is the driver that adds 20 to 40 yards to the drives of average golfers and one long distance champ said it's the best driver he's used in over 20 years of crushing monster drives.
The Controller 460cc driver comes with a graphite shaft so it swings smooth as it crushes your drives.
