A beautiful and challenging 18 hole championship golf course, a nine-hole executive course, and a lighted driving range is located on Highway 46 Bypass near 17th Street just minutes from campus. The Golf Courses are open from sunrise to sunset 364 days a year (weather permitting). Contact the IU Golf Shop at 812-855-7543 to reserve your tee time today! The lighted driving range is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. (March - October) and sunrise to sunset (November - February). Clubs are furnished at the driving range building. The range features target greens, 36 mat teeing stations, and 14-20 grass teeing stations. The tradition of Indiana's golf program has been well-documented and the university's commitment to excellence in the sport is evident by the golf facilities that reside in Bloomington close to the IU campus.

IU Practice Facility

Indiana's quest to regain national recognition with its golf programs took a tremendous step forward in 2003 in accomplishing that mission. The Hoosiers unveiled a new state-of-the-art practice facility that enables the Hoosier student-athlete to hit any type of shot under tournament conditions.

The team-only facility includes two large bent grass teeing areas one each end. Seven large USGA greens and 19 white sand bunkers also grace the facility. Bent grass is the dominant turf on the facility, including two different varieties of bent, which allows the Hoosiers to make the greens different speeds.

Construction began on the facility through the spring of 2001. Noted golf course architect Tim Liddy designed the practice area and Wadsworth Golf Course Construction was the contractor.

"This is an exciting facility," Liddy said. "I think we built a unique, one-of-a-kind area that you won't find anywhere else in the country. I was really excited to be a part of this project and I'm thrilled with how it turned out."

The upper end of the practice area includes an 11,000 square foot pitching and chipping area surrounded by 11 bunkers. The pitching and chipping area also has its own bent grass fairway and gives the Hoosier team the opportunity to work on their short game. Also on the upper end of the facility is a large two-tiered undulating USGA putting-only green.

From the main hitting area on the lower end of the facility, IU student-athletes can hit shots from 175 yards in and into five USGA greens. There are nine additional sand bunkers on the lower end of the practice area, including two fairway bunkers.

By far the best facility in the Big Ten, Indiana can attribute their improvement to this immaculate facility, which has quickly become the crown jewel of Indiana golf. Since the inception of the practice facility, the interest amongst the Indiana golf recruits has grown tremendously. Recruits are amazed by the first-class facility and anxious when the coach tells them that the facility belongs to them. This past year, Indiana golfers were found on the practice facility nearly all 12 months out of the year.

Along with the short-game area, the Hoosier golfers enjoy their own private teeing and practice area at the IU Golf Course driving range. The widely spread out range features four large target greens with a total of 12 pins to shoot at. Along side the Hoosier golf tee is a huge putting green, offering many undulating fast putts. Adjacent to the driving range, the IU Golf Course also has an executive nine-hole par-three course that is very popular among the recreational golfers.

Indiana student-athletes receive the greatest attention from the university in the classrooms and with facilities. Hoosier golfers have been provided with a state-of-the-art facility that offers any type of shot that can be found on the golf course. The old adage is "practice makes perfect" and what a better place to do it than a perfect practice facility.
