Men's Golf

The University of Dubuque men’s golf team offers you plenty of chances to play and compete on some of the Midwest’s best golf courses. The Spartans compete in tournaments in the fall and spring semesters. UD won the Iowa Conference title in 2014. The Spartans home course is Dubuque Golf & Country Club. The championship golf course is nestled in natural, gently rolling, well-manicured terrain while offering full-service practice facilities.

Each year the squad travels south over spring break to enjoy warmer weather and a chance to prepare for the spring season and the American Rivers Conference Championships held in April and May. There is not a better way to compete while honing your golf skills than being a member of the Spartans golf team.
