The University of Maryland Golf Course in College Park, Maryland, is the home of the Maryland Terrapins men's and women's golf teams. The semi-private championship course was designed in 1955 by George Cobb, the course has been a longtime host of state and regional tournaments and hosts over 50,000 rounds of golf annually.[1] The course is located in the northern perimeter of the University of Maryland, College Park's campus, and is home to a 45-station driving range and a 5,000-square-foot (460 m2) putting green.

A 35,000-square-foot (3,300 m2), plantation-style clubhouse, named Mulligan's Grill and Pub, is located on the course. Completed in 1999 for $3 million, Mulligan's houses a full-service bar, banquet facility, and pro shop.[2][3] The golf course underwent a series of renovations from 2008 to 2009.[4]

The Melwood Prince George's County Open, a Nationwide Tour event, was held at the golf course in 2010 and 2011.[4] The 2016 Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association High school 4A/3A and 2A/1A state championships were also held here.[5]
