Riverside’ Fall Golf Classic is back at Veenker Memorial Golf Course. As part of the Riverside’s 70th anniversary, Riverside will host the twelfth Fall Golf Classic on August 23 at Veenker. Check in will begin at 10:30 AM, Lunch at 11:00 AM with play beginning at 12:15.
Par-72 Veenker Memorial was renovated in 2008 with bent grass fairways and greens. The course stretches 6,680 yards from its back set of three tees, so length isn't the overriding issue here. In fact, the course has just four par-4s more than 402 yards, with the 435-yard opener the longest. Accuracy, most notably on the holes where the hills are at their steepest and trees overhang fairways, is an absolute must. A 2008 re-grassing converted all the fairways and greens to bentgrass.
Through the years, Veenker Memorial Golf Course has remained one of the most discussed and demanding tracks in the Upper Midwest. Golfweek ranked it among "America's Best State Public Access Courses" in 2003, and Golf Digest has listed the course as the sixth-best public track in Iowa.
