“We invite you to come and play one of the top college golf courses in the country. The Furman Golf Club has been voted #1 Public Golf Course in the Upstate by the South Carolina Golf Ratings Panel, ranked No. 16 in Golfweek’s “”Best Campus Courses” in 2015 and has received a 3.5 star ranking from Golf Digest. It is also where Furman alums and professional golfers Betsy King, Beth Daniel, Dottie Pepper and Brad Faxon honed their college games.
The challenging, par-72 layout underwent a major renovation in 2008, where all 18 greens were reconstructed under USGA specifications and reseeded with Champion UltraDwarf Bermudagrass. A long-term master plan, implemented in 2010, has led to a new practice facility for the Furman golf teams, enhanced public practice facilities, new tees to accommodate golfers of all levels, bunker strategy improvement, refurbished cart paths, irrigation upgrades, major drainage installation and clubhouse enhancements. The course now also qualifies as a PGA Family Course.” – Furman Golf Club
