On May 12, 1938, former Iowa State University athletic director and football coach George F. Veenker founded Veenker Memorial Golf Course. Now, the public golf course—home of the Iowa Masters tournament—is owned and operated by ISU's Facilities Planning & Management department. In addition to offering ISU students and staff and the city of Ames a place to play, Veenker provides a hands on learning lab for ISU Turf Grass Management students..
For golfers who need to practice before hitting the 18-hole course, VMGC offers adult and youth lessons, plus a driving range with a practice green and sand bunker. It may close down in the winter months, but VMGC keeps golfers in top form with an indoor practice facility, complete with hitting stalls equipped with heat and a pro turf surface.
