The clubhouse at one of Iowa’s premiere golf courses was destroyed in a fire this morning.
Investigators are trying to determine what sparked the fire at the Amana Colonies Golf Club, but they say it appears to have started in the pro shop and spread to the clubhouse. No injuries are reported, but the building is reduced to rubble.
Firefighters were sent to golf club shortly after 3:30 this morning were initially held back due to the intensity of the flames. Due to the course’s remote location, crews had to haul in water.
This year, the website Iowa Golf.com ranked The Amana Colonies Golf Club 5th on its list of “top public golf courses in Iowa.”
