Welcome to the 80th Annual Jaycee Greater Waterloo Open! The Waterloo Open is the largest and longest-running professional tournament in Iowa.
This year’s event will begin at South Hills Golf Course on Wednesday with the 10th Annual Don Narveson Youth Golf Clinic. This program is offered to any child under the age of 18. It includes golf instruction from several professionals from this year’s Open field. The Youth Clinic includes a free lunch and door prizes.

The Pro/Sponsor event begins on Thursday at Irv Warren Memorial Golf Course at Byrnes Park. The Pro/Sponsor tournament is a two-day event of approximately 75 teams that include one professional and four sponsor players. Each player plays his or her own ball on every hole, and the three low net scores on each hole are used to calculate the team score. Winning teams are awarded with gift certificates to the Irv Warren Memorial Pro Shop and the professionals are awarded cash prizes.
The amateur tournament showcases all three of Waterloo’s public golf courses. The amateur tournament starts on Friday. All participants play a qualifying round at Gates Park Golf Course and South Hills Golf Course on Friday and Saturday. The low 40 and ties using the combined scores at both courses have the opportunity to join their professional counterparts on Sunday at Irv Warren Memorial Golf Course for the final round. Amateurs are awarded gift certificates to the three local Pro Shops.
192 professional golfers from around the world tee it up Saturday morning with their sights on the $55,000 first place check. The low 50 scores, plus ties, advance to Sunday’s final round.
