ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan Golf Course and Radrick Farms Golf Course were both listed among Golfweek's Best Campus Courses today (Friday, Sept. 6). The U-M Golf Course earned a top-10 ranking coming in eighth overall, while Radrick Farms was listed No. 17.
Overall, the Big Ten had five of its courses listed with U-M featured twice. Wisconsin's University Ridge was ranked sixth, while Ohio State's Scarlet Course was seventh and Purdue's Kampen Course was No. 13.
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 men's and women's golf teams Wolverine Invitational and most recently hosted the men's 2012 NCAA Central Regional.
Pete Dye designed the Radrick Farms Golf Course for U-M in 1962, but the course did not open until 1965. Owned and operated by Michigan, Radrick Farms is a championship 18-hole course with over 275-acres and 7,000 yards located on U-M's east campus.
