Athens' only in-town public golf course featuring 18 holes, rolling hills, lakes, undulating greens and a driving range. Designed by world-renowned architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the course underwent a major renovation in 2006 by Love Golf Design, headed by PGA TOUR professional Davis Love III. In 2009, the course was named one of the top 10 public courses in Georgia by Golfweek and one of the 25 best university courses in the nation by Links Magazine.

The 7,240-yard course has played host to a PGA TOUR Qualifying School stage, the women's NCAA Golf Championships, the men's Southeastern Conference Golf Championships, and annually hosts one of the longest-running competitions in women's intercollegiate golf, the Liz Murphey Collegiate Golf Classic. In 2010, UGA became the only university to own a professional golf tournament, the Stadion Athens Classic at UGA.
