The John E. Walker Sr. Golf Course (often referred to as the Walker Course) is an 18-hole golf course on the campus of Clemson University in South Carolina. The course is the home of the Clemson Tigers men's and women's golf teams. Its signature 17th green and bunkers echo the university's tiger paw logo.[2]

In 2012, the Professional Golfers' Association of America ranked the Walker Course as the 9th best university golf course in the United States.[3]
