Tee off in Style. Discover Whispering Creek Golf Club

The Whispering Creek Golf Club is a premier golf course in Sioux City, Iowa. The course is known for its big skies, open vistas, and well-maintained, fast-rolling greens. I have been fortunate enough to play on some of the most beautiful golf courses in the area, and nothing compares to Whispering Creek. This gem is a haven for golf lovers, and I highly recommend you golf this course. I will take you through the history, amenities, course layout, signature holes, events, and some tips for playing at the course.

After golfing at Whispering Creek, I confidently say this is a must-play course in the Sioux Links region. The course is challenging but rewards good play, and it is set on a beautiful piece of land. The greens and fairways are some of the best I have played on, and the amenities are top-notch.” Derek Soukup, Sioux Links Editor


The 18-hole championship golf course opened in 2005 and has been a favorite among golfers ever since. The course is spread over 190 acres of lush greenery, and the natural beauty of the surroundings adds to the charm of the golf course. The par 72 has five sets of tees that can vary the yardage from a very playable 4855 yards to 7175 yards for those wanting to tame this beast. The course has a variety of holes, including some doglegs, blind shots, and water hazards. The attention to detail is evident in every aspect of the course.

The front nine plays next to and over a small creek that runs through many holes. Native brome grass awaits balls that miss the landing areas. Holes seven and eight, back-to-back par 5s, will make you second your tee box choice. The challenging slope of the green on hole nine is an insane way to end the first nine.


Before tackling the back nine, stop in the barn-shaped clubhouse that offers stunning golf course views and grab some food and a beverage. The full-service pro shop is filled with golf accessories and apparel, and the pro staff is helpful and knowledgeable. They also have a one-of-a-kind banquet facility to rent. Overall, the staff at Whispering Creek Golf Club is friendly and welcoming, and they go out of their way to ensure you have a great experience.

The back nine continues the theme of “hit it straight” with narrow fairways, conveniently placed water hazards, and tall brome. The signature hole, 13, is an uphill par 3. Playing 201 yards from the black tees and 161 from the gold, the green is protected by four sod-faced bunkers and a right-to-left inclined surface. The right side of the green is a safe tee shot “bail-out.” Hole 18 is one of the most demanding finishing holes in the Sioux Links area. Many matches are won and lost with the risk-reward of this “gettable” par 5. Fairway bunkers, water hazards, and a 3-tier green surrounded by water on two sides must be considered as you approach. 

Whispering Creek Golf Club hosts various events, open and member-only tournaments throughout the year. The course is a popular venue for corporate outings, charity events, and weddings. They host several open scramble and fundraiser tournaments, signature events like Creekfest, and Whispering Creek Match Play, a two-day event. Tournaments are a great way to experience the course and meet other golfers.
