Victoria National Golf Course (officially Victoria National Golf Club) is located in Newburgh, Indiana, which is in the southwestern corner of the state just east of Evansville, Indiana. Victoria is a private 18-hole golf course that was designed by golf course architect Tom Fazio, and constructed in 1996 on land that had been used for strip mines from the 1950s until 1977. Developed and initially owned by Terry Friedman and family, the course was sold to Victoria Partners LLC in 2010.[1]

As of August 2012, Victoria National is ranked as the 35th best golf course in America, according to Golf Digest. Victoria is certified in Audubon International's Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses.

Victoria National hosted its highest-profile tournament beginning in 2012; the Web.com Tour's United Leasing Championship has been held for five seasons (2012–16) to date. The tournament purse was over a half-million dollars, and the event was televised by the Golf Channel.

Previously, Victoria hosted Legends Tour (the official senior tour of the LPGA) tournaments in 2003 and 2004, as well as the U.S. Senior Amateur in 2006.
