The Ohio University Golf Course is located on both the north and south banks of the Hocking River, coordinates I-7 on the campus map. It is marked as #88 on the map.


The nine-hole recreational Golf Course was originally located entirely along the north bank of the Hocking River, between South Green Drive and the river. Construction projects in the late 1990's (especially Ping Center and the football practice fields) temporarily reduced the course to four holes. The temporarily missing holes have been replaced, using land on the south bank of the Hocking River (between the river and the highway), which can be reached by a bridge that was built in 2001.
