A green playground

Veenker practice range

The spring rains stop, the world greens up and the golfers come out to play. Activity has picked up in the last week at Veenker Memorial Golf Course on the north edge of campus. Pictured, golfers take advantage of Veenker's wide driving range, which includes outdoor and indoor options.

Veenker staff are getting ready for summer junior programs (Wednesday mornings and all day Thursday), which will begin in a few weeks. Ames Park and Recreation-sponsored lessons and ISU PE classes are underway. Preparations for the Iowa Masters (July 11-13) and Iowa Games (July 19) tourneys also have begun. Photo by Bob Elbert.
