University of Michigan Golf Course is an 18 hole private golf facility located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Michigan’s varsity golf teams compete and practice at this university-owned course that offers challenging fairways and greens that offer a breathtaking view of the university’s main campus.

Designed by legendary golf course architect Alister MacKenzie, the course officially opened in the spring of 1931 and immediately drew praise as one of the finest in America. At the time of its opening, the University Golf Course became just the fourth course to be located on a college campus. The University of Michigan Golf Course is one of only six MacKenzie-designed golf courses in the United States, including Augusta National Golf Club.

A multi-million dollar renovation completed in the spring of 1994 was managed by Arthur Hills, a Michigan graduate and one of the foremost golf course architects in America. As an admirer of MacKenzie, Hills understood his focus was not a new course in Ann Arbor but a return to MacKenzie’s intent.

The renovation included the return of original bunkers, improved tree planting and placement, construction of stately tee areas and an improved irrigation system. A new practice range was added to assist Michigan’s golf squads as well as a number of practice greens and sand traps. The popularity of golf carts necessitated large stretches of cart paths that partition landscaped medians around the course.
