The Club

Echo Valley Country Club embodies the spirit of its membership: friendly, vibrant and committed to the best in life. We are a private club promoting active lifestyles, social opportunities, family-centered recreation, and the very best of Midwest living. In addition to 27 holes of award-winning golf, Echo Valley's recreational opportunities include:


Reveling in the fun and sun at our beautifully designed and landscaped pool is one of the highlights of an Echo Valley membership. With plenty of deck space to catch rays––as well as plenty of shade if you’re trying to avoid it––our pool offers something for everyone.

Enjoy lunch, snacks, soft drinks and adult beverages from our concession stand, or have dinner delivered deck side from our restaurant. When you’re ready to get wet, glide in slowly from our step entry, or dive right into the deep end. Our deep-water area is roped off for safety and features a diving board and youth slide. We also offer parents of young children peace of mind with our separate, fenced-in toddler pool.

Our all-family Fourth of July party is a highlight of the summer, and we feature couples cocktail parties by the pool, birthday parties by request, as well as private rentals throughout the swim season.

The official pool season is Memorial Day to Labor Day. We are open 11:00 am to 8:00 pm, seven days a week during the summer season.

Our family loves spending time at Echo Valley. Whether it's playing golf, spending time at the pool, heading to Aspen for a workout or having dinner in the Terrace Room, our family has found so many fun ways to do things together through our membership. The entire EVCC staff is top-notch. They've made us feel welcome since day one.

Our family has enjoyed Echo Valley for over 20 years. When the kids were growing up, they spent summers at the Club enjoying tennis, junior golf and the swim team. We have all enjoyed the dining and social events as well. The golf course is unsurpassed in quality, beauty and challenge. A great family place at an affordable price.

Echo Valley is a wonderful place where we have enjoyed membership for over 16 years. The golf course is beautiful, the pool is relaxing, the meals are great, programming & events are well-planned and facilities are well-maintained. The staff is friendly and attentive.
For the past five years I have chaired the planning committee for the annual ladies' member-guest tournament and it is a pleasure to work with the Club's staff on this event. They are pleasant and professional, they pay attention to the details and they work tirelessly to ensure a great day for members and guests alike.
I would recommend EVCC without hesitation to anyone who is looking for a special, beautiful place right on the edge of Des Moines for golf, meeting new friends, relaxing with family, enjoying wonderful social events and hosting special events.
