U-M Golf Course Parking - Improved Signage and Recycling Efforts
The U-M Golf Course parking areas are taking on two new initiatives this season to improve the tailgating experience for our guests. In an effort to expand our sustainability efforts on football game days, you will notice increased recycling receptacles around the course in the various parking locations. You will also notice teams of volunteers roaming these areas to help pick up your recyclables and help sort your trash from your recycling.
The U-M Golf Course will also be outfitted with new signage, both at the various entrances as well as within each parking area on the course. These coordinated signs will assist you in identifying where you are and remembering where you parked. Please remember that access to parking on the U-M Golf Course is available for each game on a weather permitting basis, and for additional information about parking options, please visit Parking Information for Football Game Days.
