Scorecard

The Bulldogs' home layout stretches over 7,000 yards and plays to a par of 72. Golf Digest has rated it as one of the top 50 public courses in the nation, and rightfully so. Despite its public status (indeed, it gets heavy play, over 45,000 rounds per year), general manager Dave Cousart and his staff keep the course in championship condition.

The UGA Course is characterized by lush bermuda fairways best known for their length. Water guards four of the holes while strategically placed bunkers border quick, bent grass greens. In the past seven years, it has undergone large-scale renovations, making the greens larger and more undulating. Mounds and pot bunkers have also changed the look of the greens and enhanced the challenge of getting to the pins, as well.

Opened for play in 1968, the UGA Course was designed by famed architect Robert Trent Jones, a personal friend of Dr. O.C. Aderhold, UGA president from 1950 until 1967. Jones donated the plan to the University, and construction of the course was funded primarily by student-generated activities fees.

The layout at UGA requires a lot of carry-on approach shots; it's not a bump-and-run course. Many of the greens are elevated and hard to reach, and there aren't many places to run the ball up. The recently-added mounds, designed by architect John LaFoy, help keep the ball in play, improve drainage and provide visual definition of the holes.

Perhaps the best example of UGA's multitude of choices occurs at the 12th hole, a panoramic, par-5 whose third (or second) shot carries a small pond onto an island green. Many players have been just as awed by the beauty of this hole as they are confounded by its supreme challenge.

In addition to the championship course, the UGA facilities include a three-tiered driving range, a large bermuda chipping green, a bent grass putting green and three practice bunkers with a bermuda green. This practice and teaching area rank among the most extensive in the nation. Things only get better for Georgia golfers with a state-of-the-art practice center already at the team's disposal along the UGA Golf Course property.

The course has a long and storied history hosting collegiate events.

The 1998 SEC Men's Championships were contested on the UGA Course, which also will host an NCAA Men's Regional in 2012.

The Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic is one of the longest running intercollegiate women's competitions in any sport, dating back to 1973. Additional women's events UGA has hosted at the course include the 1981 AIAW National Championships, the 1983 and 1993 NCAA Championships, the 2002 SEC Championships and the 2008 NCAA East Regional. The layout also will serve as site of the 2013 NCAA Championships.
