This course is a premier public golf facility owned and operated by Iowa State University. It was established May 12, 1938 by George F. Veenker, former ISU athletic director and football coach. Mr. Veenker had the idea to build a golf course on the ISU campus. He envisioned, and set in motion, a course to be built by the Works Progress Administration. Originally, a Perry Maxwell design, the course has since become one of the most talked about, demanding, challenging and penalizing golf courses in the Midwest. The hilly design has a creek that comes into play on some holes, including #15, a 420-yard, par 4, featuring a dogleg right fairway and requiring an approach shot over the creek. The fairways are tree lined, and the greens are well maintained. "Golf Digest" rated this course as the 6th "Best Public Course" in the state for 1996.
