UGA Golf Course The University of Georgia Golf Course opened in 1968 with the purpose of supporting the university community and a collegiate golf program. Over the years the course has become an important recreation facility not only for the University, but for the state of Georgia as a whole. Earlier this season, Georgia hosted a cross country meet at the UGA Golf Course for the first time since 2007.
Avid golfer Dr. Omer C. Aderhold served as the University of Georgia's President from 1950-67 and was a driving force behind the creation of the UGA Golf Course.
The University already owned the land and Dr. Aderhold was a personal friend of Robert Trent Jones Sr., the golf course's architect. In addition, UGA students were so interested in having a golf course that they agreed to pay for it in their student activity fees over a five-year period during the 1960s.
A one-hour highlight show will air Sunday, Nov. 5 at 12 p.m. ET on the SEC Network.
