Furman Golf Club


The university has its own 18-hole golf course, which was just recently named one of the “30 Best Courses You Can Play in South Carolina.” The semi-private, par-72 golf course underwent a major renovation in 2008. All 18 greens were redesigned and sprigged with Champion Bermuda grass, and the course features a dozen new fairway bunkers. The course has four sets of tee markers: 6,993 yards (purple), 6,500 yards (black), 6,009 yards (white) and 5,281 yards (lavender). The course serves as the home of the men’s and women’s golf programs at Furman, which has produced such well-known golfers as Betsy King, Beth Daniel, Dottie Pepper and Brad Faxon.

Furman's PEAK Performance Ropes Course consists of a series of outdoor physical and mental challenges, noncompetitive games and problem-solving adventures, generally performed on low and high-ropes elements. To undertake and successfully meet these challenges, each team member must demonstrate mutual respect and trust, clear thinking, open communication, planned experimentation, and other team interactions.
