The Pfau Course at Indiana University

1492 Indiana 45 46 Bypass
Bloomington, IN 47408 


Home course of the Indiana University Hoosiers

Designed by architect Steve Smyers and two-time major winner and Hoosier native Fuzzy Zoeller, the Pfau Golf Course offers a unique, world-class layout that is set in the natural beauty of southern Indiana. Opened in 2020, the course was built on the same 265-acre eastside Bloomington property previously occupied by the IU Championship Golf Course, the university’s original par-3 course.

It features zoysia fairways framed with bluegrass rough, followed by a blend of fescue, or Irish links, that is reddish/orange in color and significantly enhances the already picturesque views throughout the course. The Pfau Course will challenge golfers with 147 bunkers spread out amongst the 18 championship holes. 

Not to be outdone by the course, the venue includes a state-of-the-art comprehensive short-game practice area and two driving range areas. The Jeffrey L. and Jennifer R. Kittle Putting Green, the Courtney Cox Cole Practice Range, practice bunkers and short-game practice area, along with the course, are open to the public.
