Golf Course

On May 15, 1959 the University of Maryland Golf Course was dedicated to the health, recreation and welfare of the university community. Situated just west of the heart of campus on 150 acres of rolling hills and mature hardwoods, the picturesque and challenging UM Golf Course was designed by George W. Cobb, long considered one of America’s leading golf course architects. The recently completed first phase of the course renovations incorporates design updates by renowned architect William R. Love.

The professionally staffed facility features a spacious clubhouse with conference and banquet rooms, Mulligan’s Grill and Pub, a full service golf shop, and locker rooms. The enhancements to the course include reconstruction of all tee and green complexes to USGA specifications, new concrete golf car paths, construction of new bunkers, and expanded practice facilities. Future plans include construction of a pavilion, improvements to the clubhouse and other facilities.
