Longview Golf Center Says Goodbye
October 9, 2015
Sue and George Frampton, owners of Longview Golf Centre announce that Longview Golf Centre will be closing permanently October 23rd, 2015 - welcoming new development into the Urbandale community.
As the community surrounding the property continues to explode in development, and as the family looks to move on to other endeavors, the timing is now right for the property to develop beyond a driving range. The love and support from the patrons and staff has kept the doors open for 26 years.
Longview was originally built in 1989 on the site now occupied by Price Chopper at 86th St and 54th Avenue in Johnston. The move to the present location at 100th St and 54th Avenue in Urbandale established Longview, in 1995, as the place “Where you can practice every club in your bag, every day of the year”, and Iowa’s only golf dome.
Golf Students should contact David Gantt and Lori Gaffney – they will continue to teach in the area and will be happy to complete your lessons. For more information, questions or concerns, please call 515- 986-9799.
Please join us in celebration and reunion of staff and many patrons from over the years on October 24th from 2-6 pm for an Open House. Food and beverages will be provided. Enjoy one last bucket of balls on us! The shop will be open to close-out merchandise and you can preview our equipment and machinery to be publicly auctioned on Sunday, October 25th starting at 1pm by Greenfield-Dvorak Pro Auction Service.

The Frampton family extends a heartfelt thank you to its many employees, golf professionals, students, and patrons who have made Longview a special place.
