About the Course
The Georgia Southern University Golf Course at University Park is an 18 hole championship course opened in October 2013. The 167 acre tract of land is located six miles south of Georgia Southern’s main campus in a residential area of Bulloch County. The course is 6,900 yards from the championship tees and includes a total of five sets of tees at each hole to accommodate a variety of player skill levels.
The course was constructed to expand recreational opportunities for the growing Georgia Southern student body through funds from student recreation fees. The golf course will be open to the general public at a daily rate or through an annual pass.
The construction of the golf course included the renovation of the 8,000 square foot clubhouse, an addition of a 10,000 square foot maintenance and golf cart storage facility, and a complete practice facility. The clubhouse will house a multi-purpose/meeting room, a café, golf shop, and administrative offices. The practice facility includes a 30 station practice range, chipping green, and a 10,000 square foot practice putting green.
In addition to daily golf, the Director of Golf, Marten Olsson will offer programming for all skill levels of golfers, provide tournament administration for groups, and teach private and group golf lessons.
