Most Commonly Asked Questions

What dates are available for my event?

  • The golf course maintains a 12 month Calendar of Events. To check on date availability, please click onto our calendar page.

Can I have a Shotgun event?

  • Shotguns occur when all golfers tee off at the same time from different holes. We do 8:00am Shotguns for 60 or more players, however, afternoon events will only be granted if there is already a morning event scheduled. There are a limited number of shot guns available during the golf season.

What if I show up with fewer people than stated in my contract?

  • The University Golf Course closes the tee sheet to additional sales at an appropriate time based on the stated player count received from the Outing Chairperson two weeks in advance. At that point, the Outing Chairperson becomes responsible for filling his/her player count and the amount due the day of the event.

Am I required to have food service with my event?

  • No, however we will offer several Outing Food & Beverage options from which you may choose. If you wish to book an event for golf only, we are happy to assist you. Some small events choose to enjoy the offerings of our bar and restaurant after they finish playing. If you think this is something you may like to do, please speak with our Tournament Coordinator for some great ideas.
