Notre Dame Golf Course
Designed as a standard 18-hole course in 1929, the Notre Dame Golf Course today consists of nine holes in the picturesque setting that is ND. Open to the public, and appropriately discounted for students, the course sits on the southwest corner of campus, giving players scenic views of the Golden Dome and Basilica.
When four new residence halls, a bookstore, and visitors’ center—the West Quad—were added in 1995, the golf course was halved to make way for those improvements. The construction also led to the reconfiguration of the roadway linking the south and west parts of campus.
The Notre Dame Golf Course also is used for Irish men’s and women’s cross country meets, and when conditions allow, students may don winter gear and cross country ski on the course.
Since 1999, Notre Dame is also home to the par-71, 18-hole Warren Golf Course on the northeast side of campus. Underwritten by alumnus William Warren, the course was designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore.
