2015-16 SEASON COACHES PLAYERS 2014-15 REVIEW HISTORY RECORDS UF WOMEN’S GOLF 2015-16 FLORIDA WOMEN’S GOLF Mark Bostick Golf Course With a $1.8-million clubhouse renovation and a $4-million course renovation in 2001, Florida boasts one of the finest overall facilities in all of collegiate golf. Since 1962, the Mark Bostick Golf Course (formerly the Gainesville Golf and Country Club) has been home to the Gators. The Florida golf program recently moved into a new era, playing on a full-renovated course which opened in November of 2001. While improvements and additions have been made over the years, this was the first full-scale renovation in 20 years. The University of Florida hired Jacksonville-based architect Bobby Weed to head up the renovation. With the help of an experienced staff, he constructed a challenging course for collegiate golfers. Par at the course remained 70 after the renovation, but the yardage was increased to 6,701. Some holes changed only slightly, keeping some familiarity, while others were completely redesigned to challenge golfers day-in and dayout. Both the men’s and the women’s golf teams host tournaments at Mark Bostick Golf Course in the spring of each year. The Mark Bostick Golf Course plays host to the annual Gator Invitational and Gator Women’s Golf Invitational, in addition to the yearly Gator Golf Day, where alumni and current PGA and LPGA Tour players return each year to give their time and money to continue the winning tradition of the UF golf program. Various state tournaments and the SEC Championships have also been held at Mark Bostick Golf Course. Course Facts: • Located less than a mile from campus, the University Golf Course and the Guy Bostick Clubhouse (home of the men’s and women’s golf teams) are situated on 110 acres of heavily tree-lined, softly rolling terrain. • The Florida women’s golf team plays the 18-hole, par-70 course to a length of 6,074 yards. • The course went through a $4-million renovation in 2001, which included new tees and fairway surfaces, 140-plus bunkers, triplerow irrigation and a newly-designed practice facility for the teams. • The course went through a $600,000 renovation in the summer of 2014, which included an overhaul of the putting greens, sand traps and team practice areas. “It is a tremendous asset to our team to have such a wonderful facility and golf course right here on campus. The Mark Bostick Golf Course is just minutes away from where our student-athletes live, work out and go to class. It is a huge advantage for us from a time management standpoint. Our team loves playing this golf course and it is a fair, yet challenging course.” -Head Coach Emily Glaser GATORS 32 ALWAYS
