green and range
Central is one of the only U.S. colleges with an on-campus putting greens and driving range.

Ryerson golf practice facility

Named for the architect of Central's men's golf dynasty, coach Norman "Doc" Ryerson, the range opened in 2005 is one of the only on-campus golf practice facilities in Division III. With two well-manicured putting greens and practice bunkers, the facility is ideal not only for hitting off the tee but for working on every club in the bag.

The practice facility includes 20 tee boxes and several target greens, large enough for team workouts.

The Ryerson Range greens are maintained daily throughout the spring, summer and fall.

Bos Landen
Central's home course is located just two miles from campus.

Bos Landen Golf Club

Just two miles from campus is Central's home course, the rugged Bos Landen Golf Resort. Given a four-star rating by Golf Digest, the par-72 layout measures over 7,000 yards and was named the top public course in Iowa four times. It's located in a hilly, heavily wooded area near Lake Red Rock.
