Greenville, SC Golf School – Host Course

Furman University Golf Club - Hole #4

Furman University Golf Club

Set among 170 acres on one of the nation’s most beautiful campuses, the Furman University Golf Club is rightfully acclaimed as one of the best collegiate courses in the country. Nestled in the Blue Ridge foothills and measuring 6,800 yards from the championship tees and sporting bent grass greens and Bermuda fairways, the fully-irrigated course is considered a fine test of golf.

Designed by Richard K. Webel, course construction began in 1957 when few colleges in the country had the luxury of an on-campus facility.

Home of two of the nation’s oldest intercollegiate tournaments, the Furman Intercollegiate and Furman Lady Paladin Invitational, the Furman University Golf Club has also been the site of South Carolina’s 4A state high school championship the last several years.

Since its opening, the course has hosted some of the game’s most renowned stars, including Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Curtis Strange, Jay Haas, and Billy Andrade, as well as a host of outstanding women players, including Nancy Lopez and Furman graduates Betsy King, Beth Daniel, Dottie Pepper and Sherri Turner. Current PGA star Brad Faxon ’83 holds the course record with a 62.
