    THP Tour Van Event - Des Moines, IA

    The THP Tour Van is hitting the road for a few weeks in September and stop #3 is Des Moines, IA. Because we have THPers scattered throughout the Midwest, we wanted to pick a place that works best for everybody and because of that have chosen the Des Moines area.



    The Date
    Saturday the 15th of September

    The Course
    Tournament Club of Iowa



    https://www.tcofiowa.com/index.asp

    This is an Arnold Palmer designed course and consistently ranked as one of the best public courses in Iowa. Expect forgiving tee shots followed by demanding approaches, lots of evelation changes, and water on 13 of 18 holes. The five par 3's are often said to be the best collection in the state.

    Rates will be $54/18 holes with carts outfitted with GPS.

    First tee time on Saturday will be 11:00am
    First tee time on Sunday will be 9:00am

    The Itinerary
    Some Giveaways.
    Some Demo Items.
    Some Golf.

    We will arrive early and hit the range and there will be demo clubs on board. If you are an Albatross Club member, you can request any club you would like THP to bring. If we have it, it will make the trip. If you are not a member, but want to become one and help assist THP, you can right here. Of course we are coming to play golf, so come on out and tee it up with GolferGal and myself. Figure range time in the morning and then golf in the late morning early afternoon.

    If people are planning on staying over, we can get together for dinner or drinks in the evening and see what the midwest is all about. Then if there are some that are planning on making a couple of days of this, we might even be up for a round on Sunday too.

    We want to thank Hawk for assisting us in the planning and the setup. He has his work cut out for him, but we have complete faith in his abilities to assist us in getting this to be an awesome THP Tour Van Event.

    Don't forget that if you come out to the THP Tour Van, there are some cool SWAG items to pick up.
    The exclusive THP Tour Van Pukka Hats that are only available on the Range Finder RV.

    Along with those fine hats
    Some KBS Custom Shafts
    Bridgestone Golf Balls
    SCOR Hats
    And Much Much More!!!

    The THP Tour Van Texas Event was an absolute blast and you can see the recaps for that weekend here.

    As we get closer to this event, we will put together tee times as well as need a proper count for who will be coming out. We hope to see you in Des Moines for a great time.

    You can get hotel accomodations here:

    https://www.daysinn.com/hotels/iowa/a...hotel-overview

    105 NE Delaware Ave, I-35 Exit 92, Ankeny, IA 50021 US

    Phone: 1-515-965-1995
    The rates are a little different than I said originally, but not much different.

    Single/57.99
    Double/64.99

    You don't need to mention my name or THP, but do tell them that you are part of a group and we were quoted whatever rate pertains to you. Only one person out of a shared room needs to call and reserve and you won't be charged until you arrive like any other hotel.

    At this point, the rest is up to you unless you are still looking for a roommate. In that case, I'd still be glad to help. I'd recommend calling and booking soon so you don't get stuck staying somewhere else.

    Hotel Accomodations:


    Room Who? Friday Saturday
    1 Haggis Yes
    2 Howzat/Mrs Whozat/Jake Yes Yes
    3 Bulldog Yes Yes
    4 McRock Yes
    5 Jake and jjmorris Yes
    6 Cookie and Nate Yes Yes
    7 Jrod and Duey Yes Yes
    8 WessCook and dleavitt Yes Yes
    9 Hawk and bhilln Yes
    10 crazygolfnut Yes
    11 Janitor4U Yes Yes
