Finkbine Golf Course

Located on the western edge of The University of Iowa campus, just walking distance from Kinnick Stadium, Carver-Hawkeye Arena, and Hillcrest Residence Hall, is Finkbine Golf Course. Started in 1953 and opened in 1955, Finkbine remains a source of great pride and beauty as the home course for the Iowa golf program.

The 7,280-yard, par-72 layout is prized by the University and Iowa City community alike. A tremendous test of golf, Finkbine was the site of the PGA Amana VIP Pro-Am for more than 20 years featuring the PGA’s finest, as well as national and local celebrities. In 1991 Finkbine also became the host of the Ben Hogan Tour – Hawkeye Open. Collegiately, Finkbine has been the site for the 1992 and 2002 Men’s Big Ten Championships, the Hawkeye Intercollegiate, and the Big Four Invitational.

Built among the rolling hills and elevation changes of Iowa City, Finkbine challenges golfers of every skill level. The Robert Bruce Harris design features sloped greens and sand bunkering on 17 of the 18 holes. The signature 13th hole is an island green surrounded by water offering multiple tee boxes and two greens.

Offering unquestionable golf facility advantages, Finkbine Golf Course is indeed the proud home of the Hawkeyes.
