  • A tough course with lots of contour, trees, and water hazards. Excellent maintenance, not overly crowded, and reasonably priced. It's a course where you can walk and not feel pushed by herds of...  more »
  • The course is always well manicured and is challenging for all golfers. The clubhouse doesn't have much for food and golf ammenities are limited.  more »
  • Veenker is a good course when it's in good condition. IT'S NOT! There was flooding, that, I understand, Sandy greens and t-boxes. But also it still hasn't had a Spring/post-winter clean up. Too much of last fall/late falling leaves, sticks and branches that's not attributable to flood damage. It is NOT worth full price at this point. ASK if carts are on cart-path only! They don't volunteer that information. I like the course, it's challenging! But right now, not worth a drive from DSM to pay $45. I WILL go back. June probably. OH!... nice people!
  • Fun course that always provides a great challenge to golfers. Smooth, quick greens for the area! Love the Veenk ⛳️
