University of Georgia Golf Course

The University Golf Course is set on the beautiful rolling terrain in northeast Georgia and is widely regarded as one of the finest university courses in the United States. Originally designed by Robert Trent Jones in 1968 and renovated by Love Golf Design in 2006, the course is up to the standards of modern championship play and is home to the UGA men’s and women’s golf teams. The course is open to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the general public. We offer an 18-hole championship-level course, options for 9-holes, a variety of tees, driving range, golf shop, and café. No clubs?
