Jones Park Golf Course opened for play in 1959 as a 9-hole facility set on the southwest side of Cedar Rapids. This Cedar Rapids golf course course is close to the interstate and convenient to reach. The 9-hole facility continued until the spring of 2000, when the course was closed for the Master Plan Renovation. Lohmann Golf Design and The Bruce Company turned the course into an 18-hole Cedar Rapids golf course with 20 sand bunkers and 11 ponds. The 18-hole course was officially opened to the public May 24, 2001. It officially reopened from the historic flood of 2008 on May 22, 2009.
