The U-M Golf Course was designed in the late 1920s by Alister MacKenzie and opened to the public in the spring of 1931. In the spring of 1994, the course reopened following a multi-million dollar renovation. The course is the regular home of the Wolverine Invitational and most recently hosted the men's 2012 NCAA Central Regional.
