$50,000 Reasons for 50 Golf Seasons

Toad Valley Golf Course - 1973- 2023

OUR STORY

In 2023, Toad Valley is celebrating our 50th Year in Business! To celebrate, we will be giving away $50,000 split among 12 Charities. These are charities that are local to Iowa and have played a role in our family’s lives. Either personally or by supporting our business for many years.

In addition to the donation, Toad Valley is also organizing a monthly simulator tournament for each charity where they can raise additional funds.

HOW YOU CAN PLAY

You can play in a simulator tournament simply by reserving a simulator bay! That’s right. Book an hour in our state of the art simulators, then check in to play. When you check in, tell the TVGC staff that you are participating in the monthly simulator tournament.

Each tournament is a ONE HOUR 2 Person Best Shot Tournament. (If you want to play as a four some, then you will need to book for a TWO HOUR slot.)

The best part is that the simulator tournament can be played by anyone no matter their age or skill!!
