First Year of Studies The First Year of Studies program provides all first-year students with the opportunity to gain a wide-ranging liberal arts background before choosing a specific major within Notre Dame’s five undergraduate colleges. A progressive advising program for all student-athletes enables the University to follow the academic progress of all student-athletes on a regular basis. Key to the program is the fact that it is not run by the athletics department but by the University administration. Student-Athlete Success Notre Dame expects the best out of its student-athletes just as it does of every other student on campus. Notre Dame has had unprecedented academic success among its athletes, consistently ranking among the top NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision schools in graduation rates and academic progress. With more Academic All-Americans than any other school since 2000, Irish athletes have shown themselves capable of performing in the classroom while competing on the field at an elite level.

THIS IS NOTRE DAME

The University of Notre Dame When Father Edward F. Sorin started his school in the northern Indiana wilderness, he had only $300, three log buildings badly in need of repair and a far-sighted vision of establishing a liberal arts school to meet the growing educational needs of the frontier. He dreamed of building a great university, and in 1842, he founded the University of Notre Dame du Lac. Over the years, the University of Notre Dame du Lac would evolve into a preeminent place for Catholic thought. While becoming one of the top undergraduate institutions in the country, Notre Dame has also been at the cutting edge of research, including such innovations as the transmission of wireless messages and the development of synthetic rubber. The University also has stressed residential life, with four of five students living on campus. Students come to Notre Dame not only to learn how to think, but to learn how to live, keeping faith with the vision of Father Sorin.

Notre Dame Men’s Golf

With all five main contributing members of the Notre Dame rotation returning to the lineup in 2011-12, the Irish hope a repeat appearance in the NCAA Championship is in the cards.


Preview Deep, Tournament-Experienced Squad Hopes For Bigger And Better In 2011-12 All five members of Irish rotation return in hopes of NCAA qualification. The 2011-12 Notre Dame golf team will be one filled with several tournament-laden members returning, including all five major contributors from last year’s five-man rotation. However, the three seniors who have moved on from the Irish program will take with them a major leadership role that must be replaced. Connor Alan-Lee and Jeff Chen each filled voids in the Irish lineup at various times in 2010-11, with Alan-Lee filling the No. 5 spot at the BIG EAST Championship and Chen jumping in to place third at the NCAA Southeast Regional. Chen, additionally, graduated from the program with the 10th-best career stroke average at 74.81. The final of the three seniors to be replaced is Dustin Zhang, who finished his career having played in 19 tournaments for the Irish, earning two top-10 finishes as well as one topfive result at the 2008 Irish Invitational. Head coach Jim Kubinski must fill the leadership role that these three take with them, but he can look to the new leadership of a trio of talented rising seniors as well as the knowledge that all five main members of the five-man rotation return this season. Pair that with the development of the now-rising sophomores and incoming freshman trio and weapons will be aplenty for Kubinski to choose from in 2011-12.

SENIORS: Easily the biggest strength for the Irish this season will be the talented senior class that has played in a combined 78 tournaments over their time with the program, bringing home two individual medalist honors along the way. Their valuable knowledge of tournament competition will be heavily relied upon to bolster a very deep and experienced rotation. Max Scodro comes into his final year with the program off arguably his strongest season with the Irish in 2010-11. After earning medalist honors at the 2011 BIG EAST Championship and being the only player in the field to finish under-par at the tournament, Scodro became the first golfer in program history to be named the conference’s Player of the Year and only the fifth to be named a PING All-Midwest Region selection. The most experienced of any of the seniors, Scodro has played in the Irish rotation in 31 tournaments while compiling the program’s third-lowest career stroke average at 73.99. Over his first three years, Scodro has earned 12 top-10 finishes while also earning seven top-five results. In addition to holding the third-lowest career stroke average, Scodro also claims the sixth-lowest single-season mark after recording a 73.30 last year. “Max has done a tremendous job for us throughout his career at Notre Dame,” remarked Kubinski. “He is a multiple winner, both individually and in our team victories. He has tremendous physical skills and has grown in terms of emotional maturity immeasurably. I’m proud of his progress. Really, the only thing he must improve, other than the normal continued maturation and development, is his wedge play. If he turns all those shots from 40 yards or so out to 120 yards into a great strength, he’ll have a chance to be very successful at the professional level. He drives the ball well, hits solid irons, has a knack for getting up and down from the most difficult spots and has become a very solid putter, especially inside six feet. He just needs to make the so-called routine up-anddowns become routine and start to hit his pitches and

20

wedges closer to the hole. I think he’ll do just that. Max isn’t afraid of a challenge or of working at something. I think he’ll enjoy a memorable season.” Chris Walker continued to build on his confidence amongst the Irish rotation last year during his second full season in the top five. He, much like Scodro, brings with him a resume worthy of the respect of the underclassmen, having earned three top-10 finishes over his career including two top-five results. After putting together a sophomore season that finished with a 75.23 stroke average and 21 of 26 rounds (80.8%) counting toward the team total, Walker upped the ante to a 73.93 stroke average last season with 24 of 30 rounds (80.0%) registering toward the team count. The Woodlands, Texas, native also earned all-BIG EAST honors for the first time in his career, ending last season with a total of nine under- or even-par rounds, including two of those rounds breaking 70. “Chris has grown a great deal the last couple of years,” Kubinski stated. “He has matured. He has gained valuable experience. He already had a lot going for him from a physical tools standpoint. To see his maturation though, in so many areas, has been rewarding. This is a big season for him. I’ve always thought he could be a prominent player on the national level. This is the season I expect he’ll put it all together. He must start to feel as confidently in himself as I do in him and draw strength from that. He needs to be more routine-oriented, improving his golf swing through constants, feel and repetition more than anything else. He’ll also need to become a great short iron player, really developing those scoring irons. As he does these things, there won’t be many players who can beat Chris.” Tom Usher rounds out the trio of tournament veterans for the Irish, having played in a total of 20 tournaments including all eight tournaments to begin the year before his junior year was cut short due to a hand injury. Usher has continued to grow into the rotation for the Irish, leading the team at three separate tournaments as well as claiming his first medalist finish of his career at the St. Mary’s Invitational with a four-under par (214) tournament. Arguably his strongest campaign to-date with the Irish, Usher finished the year with a 74.70 stroke average while also earning five top25 finishes of the eight tournaments he participated in. “Tom has done an outstanding job for us in every way,” Kubinski explained. “He leads the way in the classroom and, often, on the course. He just needs to stay healthy. Whether by a freak accident in the weight room or a pre-existing condition that required surgery, Tom has lost time to injury a couple of times in his collegiate career. Yet, to his credit, in both cases he has worked extremely hard to not only get back but to keep improving as a player. He has so many positives in his game. He also has great, great competitiveness and a champion’s will. I’m looking forward to watching Tom ready himself for a full senior campaign and all the opportunities he’ll enjoy.” While not having played extensively in his first year with the program, Ryan Coughlin will still be looked to as a source of knowledge for those golfers who will be new to the team this season. After walking on to the team last season, Coughlin took part in only the Fighting Irish Gridiron Golf Classic but showed tremendous grit at that tournament, improving every round of the event that culminated in him carding a 71 (+1) in his final round.

Tom Usher (pictured), along with fellow seniors Max Scodro and Chris Walker, should provide bountiful experience to a tournament-savvy rotation, as the three of them have combined to play in 78 tournaments as part of the squad’s five-man rotation.

“Ryan is a feisty player,” Kubinski said. “Whatever improvements he needs to make from a physical standpoint, he often makes up for through his competitiveness and scrambling.”

JUNIOR: No one on the Irish roster enjoyed more of a breakout season in 2010-11 than Paul McNamara III, the lone junior on the Irish roster. After playing in only two tournaments during his freshman campaign, both as an individual, he made a seamless transition into the lineup for nine events this past season, posting two team-leading efforts. The Palos Verdes Estates, Calif., native improved on his season stroke average by a full three strokes in his second year with the team, carding a 74.30 last year compared to his 77.50 in his first season. The successful sophomore year also saw him register six top-25 finishes, three of which were top-10 results with one top-five finish, a tie for fifth at the Battle at the Warren. McNamara also finished second on the team with percentage of rounds counted as 21 of his 24 (87.5%) rounds scored toward the team total. Plenty of positive momentum awaits McNamara as he enters his third season with the team after setting an Irish NCAA record with his final round 67 (-5) at the 2011 NCAA Southeast Regional. “It’s difficult for me to believe Paul is already heading into his junior year,” Kubinski shared. “It just shows how quickly time passes and how important it is to take advantage of the opportunities given. Paul has

After not traveling with us as a freshman, Paul grabbed a spot in our season opener at Kiawah and played his way into the final pairing, firing a 68 in round two. He has exhibited a propensity for firing sub 70 rounds on challenging golf courses, whether at Kiawah, Bayonet or at our NCAA Regional. More importantly though, from a developmental standpoint, Paul did more this year off the course to make himself better than anything he could do on the course. I’m quite proud of him. He has matured a great deal. The lessons he learned this season in terms of discipline and responsibility will always serve him well. I’m looking forward to watching Paul blossom this season on the golf course. Everything is in place for him to do so.”

SOPHOMORES: One of the instant impacts to the Irish rotation came in the form of Niall Platt. The rising sophomore out of Santa Barbara, Calif., earned a spot in the Irish rotation for the first event of the season and didn’t look back, playing in all 11 tournaments and parlaying that into being named BIG EAST Freshman of the Year. Platt finished his first season with a 73.40 stroke average while leading the team in most number of underor even-par rounds (14) on the season and tying for the most under-par rounds (8) with Scodro. He also saw 25 of his 30 total rounds (83.3%) counted toward the count-four total while ending two tournaments as the team’s best finisher and tying for a third at the Lone Star Invitational. Overall, he finished his first year with the program earning seven top-25 finishes, five top-10 results and three top-five tournaments, led by his tie for second at the Invite at Kiawah to open the season. Platt, much like McNamara, looks to carry over a fruitful end to last season as he set Irish NCAA records in both best 54-hole stroke score (210, -6) as well as highest individual finish (T-10th) at the 2011 NCAA Southeast Regional. “I can’t speak to the history of Notre Dame golf but I can offer that I think we would be hard-pressed to find a freshman who accomplished much more than Niall did this past season,” Kubinski recalled. “Whether you’re talking about multiple top-10 finishes against strong national fields, including the NCAA Regional, the fact that he was second on our team in scoring for the season or even his 65 in competition, what Niall accomplished this past season is very impressive. I marvel at his levelheaded, calculated approach to everything he does, whether school work, practice or competition. He has a well-rounded game. He drives the ball very accurately, hits solid iron shots and excels around the greens, especially with the putter. I’d put Niall up against anyone in a putting contest. The exciting thing though is how much confidence he has

gained, in regard to what he can accomplish, throughout the season. Niall needs to get stronger and continue to put himself into contending position to gain more experience but he has the tools to be successful each and every week.” While not making the immediate impact that Platt made, fellow rising sophomores Andrew Carreon and Andrew Lane each contributed when called upon last season and will look to climb into the rotation at some point during the 2011-12 campaign. Lane concluded his freshman year having played in four tournaments for the Irish, including getting a taste of playing in the rotation at the Notre Dame versus Yale Cup, carding a pair of 78’s to finish 12-over par. He concluded the campaign with a 76.67 stroke average and earned his best finish in his final event of the season, earning a share of 16th at the Battle at the Warren. Carreon took to the course in each of the teams home events – Fighting Irish Gridiron Golf Classic, Battle at the Warren – gaining valuable experience at the collegiate level while also garnering experience at the team’s home venue. He finished the year with a 77.25 stroke average. “Andrew (Lane) came in as a top recruit for us and I believe he’ll graduate as a top player for us,” Kubinski shared. “He earned a few opportunities to travel with the starting five as an individual competitor, which was important. He gained a good feel for what is to be expected, as he works his way into our starting lineup. He’ll work hard over the summer to gain consistency in his ball striking. I’d like to see Andrew learn to shape the ball one way to the point it’s a given before he branches out to work the ball both ways. My grandfather always called it a ‘bread and butter’ shot. When Andrew feels comfortable in that way, he’ll take off as a player. His short game touch and feel is outstanding. He’s a great putter. Maybe most importantly though, he’s a great competitor. When he gets into the mindset of competing, blocking out all the typical distractive thoughts players often have, he can really play. There will be a point where we’re happy to put Andrew up against anyone, knowing he’ll be successful. His desire and hard work will get him there. I’m excited to see him make that move this season. “We’ve been fortunate to have a player like Andrew Carreon on our team,” Kubinski continued. “’AC’ is such a hard worker, dedicated to improving his golf game while also setting a high bar in the classroom. I say this often about all of our guys but AC is another class individual. He represents Notre Dame well. He has made strong improvements in his technique, the result of his tireless work. He also has become a better putter. I like the improvements Andrew made this season, including getting stronger. I’m excited to see what he can do this coming season.”

FRESHMEN: A three-man freshman class comes in during the 2011-12 season to look to fill the gap left by the three graduating seniors, all of which hope to challenge for early lineup time to begin their respective careers. Patrick Grahek, a three-time captain of his team at Milton High School in Alpharetta, Ga., enters the Irish roster as a very decorated golfer while ranking as the 97th-best high school player from the class of 2011, according to Golfweek. His high school career has seen him named to the Georgia High School Golf Coaches Association (GHSGCA) all-state team in both his junior and senior years as well as claiming the Georgia high school state championship his junior year after carding a four-under par score. He also enjoyed tremendous success on the AJGA circuit, recording nine top-25 finishes including three top-10 results, two top-five finishes and a title at the AJGA Medicus Jr. All-Star tournament in Cleveland, Ohio. Peyton Vitter joins the Irish after claiming the state championship in each his junior and senior years while attending Jesuit High School in New Orleans, La. As a result he was chosen to his all-conference and all-city teams during each of his four years, while also earning all-state honors his sophomore through senior years. Playing as his team’s No. 1 or No. 2 golfer for the entirety of his high school time, Vitter was named the MVP his sophomore year and was selected as team captain during his senior campaign. The highest-ranked recruit of the class, Tyler Wingo enters the Irish program with plenty of AJGA success to his name as well. The Fairfax, Va., native, who ranks as the 39th-best prospect in the 2011 high school graduating class according to Golfweek, secured a victory at the AJGA event at Kingsmill, carding a five-under par (208) while leading wire-to-wire. He earned all-state honors each of his four years at Paul VI Catholic High School and earned All-America honors during his senior campaign, a year that saw him capture the Virginia State Catholic individual championship for the third time in his career. “This is not only a very, very talented class for us but also an interesting one,” Kubinski explained. “It’s our first entering class without a California native in some time. In fact, it’s our first exclusively Southeastern class in my time here. It’s also a class that has won tournaments, which is important. Whether AJGA events or State High School Championships, attracting winning players is what we are interested in. I wouldn’t be surprised to see any or all of our incoming freshmen traveling with us at some point. They’re a great group, one I’m excited to have the opportunity to coach.”

Rolfs Family All-Season Varsity Golf Facility The Robert and Marilyn Rolfs Family All-Season Varsity Golf Facility (opened Sept. 30, 2006) A 5,000-square foot indoor short game area, that includes a putting green, chip and pitch area along with a practice bunker allows the student-athletes the ability to practice their short game year-round on campus.

The Robert and Marilyn Rolfs Family All-Season Varsity Golf Facility, which is located at the Warren Golf Course on the northeast corner of the University of Notre Dame campus, opened on Sept. 30, 2006 with a private dedication ceremony. The $2.1 million, 10,333-square foot facility is used by both the Irish men’s and women’s golf programs.

One of the nicest features of the facility are the six hitting stations that are located within the building that lead out to the Warren Golf Course driving range, allowing players to work on their swings in all weather conditions. Incorporated within the stations is state-of-the-art video equipment to give players and coaches instant feedback on players’ swing techniques.

Each student-athlete has his or her own locker area in their respective locker room.

Four offices are located on the east end of the building to accommodate the coaching staffs. A fully furnished lounge is available to members of both teams for studying or relaxing. Another asset for the teams is a club repair room, which is located in the southern wing of the facility.

The date of May 1, 2000, marked the beginning of a new era in the history of Notre Dame golf as the University unveiled the championship-caliber William K. and Natalie O. Warren Golf Course at Notre Dame. Since its opening date, the course has been hailed as one of the best courses in America by Golf Digest and has been featured in Links Magazine and Golf Digest as a must-play venue. Through the generous donation of Notre Dame alumnus and Tulsa, Okla., resident Bill Warren (’56), the University features an impressive 18-hole golf course, located a stone’s throw away from the northeast corner of campus. Constructed in a heavily wooded area, the facility is bordered by Douglas Road to the south, Juniper Road to the west, Ironwood Drive to the east and the Indiana Toll Road to the north. Since its inception, the Warren has played host to many marquee events. Most recently, the Warren played host to the NCAA Central Regional Championship on May 5-7, 2011. The Warren also was the host site for the 2010 NCAA Men’s Central Regional. The course also will continue to play host to the men’s Fighting Irish Gridiron Golf Classic Tournament. The course was designed by the Austin, Texasbased architectural team of Coore and Crenshaw, headed by Bill Coore and PGA Tour veteran Ben Crenshaw. Coore began his design and construction career in 1972 with noted course architect Pete Dye and formed his own company in 1982 before joining forces with Crenshaw four years later. Founded in 1986, Coore and Crenshaw has established a reputation for creating courses based on traditional, strategic golf, including: the Plantation Course at the Kapalua Resort in Maui, Hawaii; Cuscowilla Golf Club in Greensboro, Ga.; Sand Hills Golf Club in Mullen, Neb.; Barton Creek Club in Austin; the New Town Golf Club in Indonesia; Talking Stick in Scottsdale, Ariz.; and the East Hampton Golf Club on Long Island. Most recently, they designed the highly acclaimed Bandon Dunes in Oregon. Coore and Crenshaw also has undertaken several renovation projects, including the Southern Hills Country Club (in Tulsa) and the Prairie Dunes Golf Club (located in Kansas). The firm oversaw nine-hole additions to the Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa and the Onion Creek Country Club in Austin.

The existing Notre Dame Memorial Golf Course, located on the southwest side of campus, served as an 18-hole facility for the Notre Dame community until 1993, when the back nine was lost due to the addition of four campus dormitories and several athletic fields. The 70-year-old University course remains a convenient nine-hole facility available to the campus community. “After losing the back nine of the existing course, Mr. Warren came forward with an interest in developing a new 18-hole, championship course,” said Notre Dame special assistant to the president Rev. E. William Beauchamp, C.S.C. ”It then became apparent that this was a project worth pursuing.” Since Mr. Warren was familiar with the team of Coore and Crenshaw through its work in Tulsa, it was a very natural fit. “We are very grateful for Mr. Warren’s generosity,” said Beauchamp. “Such a championship-level course allows our golf teams to be more competitive on a national level. The course is intended to benefit the entire Notre Dame community while still retaining the existing course as a nine-hole facility for instructional purposes.” Course construction began on March 1, 1997, with the first actual phases of dirt movement beginning two months later. Many of the day-to-day tasks were coordinated by the University’s department of facility engineering, under the ultimate supervision of associate vice president for business operations Jim Lyphout. The project also was coordinated by former associate athletic director Bubba Cunningham, who had responsibilities for athletic facility and financial affairs at the time. Final construction was overseen by Doug Marsh, director of the Notre Dame facilities engineering office. Assisting in this monumental task was Butch Layman, a construction administrator in the facilities engineering office. South Bend-based Rieth Reilly Construction was contracted to handle the movement of approximately 100,000 yards of dirt. Another local company, Ziolkowski Construction, handled construction of the course’s buildings and other structures. Final details of the course were directed by Tom Beck, construction superintendent for Coore and Crenshaw, and his associate Jeff Bradley. Kim Hocker,

The University of Notre Dame's Warren Golf Course has been chosen as one of the top 15 college courses in the nation, according to a feature article in the September 2005 issue of Golf Digest. The magazine used a variety of criteria in rating the various layouts, including shot values, resistance to scoring, design variety, memorability, aesthetics, conditioning, ambience and bonus walking points. The Warren Golf Course was ranked 15th in the country and is one of the newest courses on the 2005 Golf Digest list. The ranking from Golf Digest is only one of honors for the Warren Golf Course in its brief history. Here's a partial list of the accolades the Notre Dame layout has received since opening in 2000: • Annually named as one of the nation’s ‘Top-100 Places You Can Play’ by Golf Digest • Top-15 Collegiate Golf Course - Golf Digest 2010 • Second-best public golf course in Indiana - Golfweek, 2007 • Third-best public golf course in Indiana - Golfweek, 2006 • Third-best public golf course in Indiana - Golf Digest, 2006 • Fifth-best public golf course in Indiana - Golfweek, 2011 • 12th-best collegiate facility in the country - Golfweek, 2005 • Golf Magazine, March 2001: "Top 10 You Can Play" -- honorable mention selection (one of only 35 courses in the country chosen) • Golf and Travel Magazine, August 2001: 40 Best Daily Fee Courses: No. 33 in United States (only course in the state of Indiana ranked) • Best New Courses of 2000: No. 5 in Affordable Public Division - Golf Digest • Chicagoland Golf Magazine: Five-star rating (highest) • Certified International Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary

UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME®


Warren Golf Course Recognized For Environmental Excellence The William K. and Natalie O. Warren Golf Course has achieved designation as a “Certified Audobon Cooperative Sanctuary” by the Audobon Cooperative Sanctuary System (ACSS), the educational division of Audobon International. The Warren Course was the sixth course in Indiana and the 335th in the world to achieve this honor. “The Warren Golf Course has shown strong commitment to its environmental program. They are to be commended for their efforts to provide sanctuary for wildlife on the golf course property,” said Joellen Zeh, staff ecologist for the ACSS. “To reach certification, a course must demonstrate that they are maintaining a high degree of environmental quality in a number of areas,” said Zeh. “We are extremely proud to be certified Audobon Cooperative Sanctuary,” said Kim Hocker, the now former golf course superintendent at the Warren Golf Course. ”From the beginning, it was the goal of the University of Notre Dame to create an environmentally-sound golf course. In addition, the overwhelming positive response from golfers and the local community has made our efforts worthwhile.”

the now former golf course superintendent of the Warren Golf Course and the existing University golf course, and his dedicated staff added their expertise to the successful finish of the project. Final construction – completed in the fall of 1999 – included grading and seeding of the driving range, construction of tee areas around the clubhouse, completion of the many strategically-placed bunkers, overseeding of the fairways and roughs, and the defining of the course during the “grow-in” period. A number of trees and ornamental grasses were planted to add finishing touches. Brian Godfrey was named the first PGA director of golf and general manager for the Notre Dame Golf Courses in October of 1998. In 2003, John Foster assumed the post of General Manager and Head Golf Professional at the Warren. His duties at the Warren Golf Course include overseeing the operation of both courses, in addition to pro shops, clubhouse and driving range management. He coordinates course use to balance and meet the requirements of the varsity golf teams, course members, faculty, staff, students and the public. Foster also maintains the golf facility budgets as well as oversees staff training. The design of the Warren Golf Course is reminiscent of the classic, walkable Irish and American courses built in the late 1800s and early 1900s, with short distances between the greens and tees. Winding its way through 250 wooded acres, the course incorporates traditional elements of the great golf courses of the early 1900s and – unlike many modern layouts – is built on subtleties rather than special effects. “Players have been impressed with the design,” said

Godfrey after the course opened in 2000. “From the dramatic bunkering to the strategic designs of the greens, it is challenging and enjoyable for golfers of all abilities.” Distinguishing features include: rectangular tee boxes that provide a classic start to each hole; undulating greens of varying shapes constructed in a pushup style that slopes from back to front; false fronts to greens that allow a golfer to run the ball or fly it to the flag; strategically-placed bunkers that visually enhance each hole while challenging players to proceed with caution. The course runs 7,020 yards from the back tees, 6,003 from the middle and 5,302 from the forward tees. It includes 88 bunkers scattered among the 18 holes, and water comes into play on six holes. The course has bent grass fairways and fescue grass rough, playing surfaces found at some of today’s top facilities. Though the course originally did not originally play with a par, it currently plays at par 71. “We maintain the course in a dry and firm manner that will be true to the vision of the architects,” said Godfrey. “Many older courses required the player to have both the ability to run the ball along the ground as well as being able to fly it to the flag. A firmer surface allows for both options. This type of maintenance plan also requires fewer chemical applications and less water, which will allow for an environmentallyfriendly course.” The designers received full permits to realign the existing Juday Creek that runs through the course and environmental safeguards were a priority in design and construction. A new creek channel was opened, resulting in a complete created habitat. The

creek winds through the finishing holes, which are noted for heavy woods and change of elevations – providing a beautiful, challenging completion to the inward nine. Constant monitoring of the creek ensures a healthy and natural environment. Some 4,400 native hardwood trees and shrubs were planted to increase the stream’s canopy cover. Approximately 360 large boulders, along with gravel and logs, were added to the slopes and bed to enhance fish habitat while a permanent sediment trap was installed. A combination of pest management, drainage and filtration techniques minimizes the use and impact of fertilizers and pesticides while 2,200 feet of new shaded stream course were created to relocate the stream from the golf course proper. Environmental engineers J.F. New & Associates directed these aspects of the project, and Ronald A. Hellenthal, professor of biological sciences at Notre Dame and Gillen Director of its Environmental Research Center, reviewed the plans and continues to monitor the creek. Two lakes add to the challenge of the course, with one stationed between the third and fourth holes while another provides a hazard from the tee of the 17th hole. Water comes into play with the existing Juday Creek winding through holes 16 and 18 while additional creeks were added on holes 10 and 18. The 7,000-foot clubhouse – designed by Moake-Park Group Inc. of Fort Wayne, Ind., in a French Country style – was completed in June of ’99. The building matches the period of the course architecture (early 1900s), with a classic “clinker” style brick exterior. The design is completed by copper cupolas, dormers and trim, a slate roof and an enclosed porch. Brick fireplaces are located on both sides of the building, which welcomes the University community to venture over for lunch, meetings or shopping. The clubhouse is open to the public and houses some of the finest in men’s and women’s golf apparel, with both the Warren Golf Course logo as well as traditional Notre Dame merchandise and souvenirs. The Warren Grille, which is operated by Notre Dame Food Services, serves traditional golf course fare as well as specialty items and sandwiches.

The fairway bunkers on the 216-yard 11th hole provide an architectural deception, in that – from the tee – the front bunkers appear to be located on the sides of the green when they, in fact, are 20 yards short of it (bunkers also are located on the sides of the green). A view from the 372-yard 1st hole. A slight dogleg to the left, this hole gives you an idea of what is to come with the rough look of the bunkers on the left to the well protected, small green.

The 197-yard 14th is one of Ben Crenshaw’s favorite holes on the Warren Golf Course. Noted for its old-Scottish style, the hole includes an elevated green and two bunkers to the right of the green that cannot be seen from the tee (unlike those to the left of the green). The hole is even more scenic when framed by full foliage in the surrounding trees.

The view from behind the 414-yard eighth hole looks to a green that is rectangular in shape and slopes dramatically from the rear, with an open front that allows either a bump-and-run shot or one that is flown to the green.

The 15th green is located just a stone’s throw from the clubhouse, yet the building is obscured by a distinctive variety of trees that rim the putting green.

This is a look from the fairway of the 436-yard sixth hole. The green is guarded by two trees and has a narrow entrance that is protected by bunkers both left and right. The Starter’s Cottage is visible in the right side of the picture.

Above is a look from the picturesque tee at the 16th hole. Overlooking Juday Creek from the elevated tee, the hole ascends up and to the left to a tiny, undulating green that is very well protected by classic Coore- and Crenshaw-designed bunkers.

The elevated tee from the longest hole on the course, the 480-yard 17th hole, overlooks a pond to the left and the large bunkers in the bank of the hill, leading to a sharp dogleg-left approach to the green.

The finishing hole’s tee shot (above) must carry the new stretch of Juday Creek and bend left to the green. The entire left side of the 18th fairway is bordered by the bed of the former Juday Creek, which has been filled to form a new stream.

The 495-yard 10th hole is another long hole that a big hitter may try to reach in two. Watch out for the creek that runs diagonally across the entire width of the fairway in front of the green.

The eastside back porch of the clubhouse (above) overlooks the finishing holes and welcomes golfers from the nearby 18th green. The westside entrance to the clubhouse sits beyond the ninth green, which is noted for its back-to-front slope and is surrounded by deceptive and treacherous bunkering.

The ninth hole, as seen from one of the Warren Golf Course's distinctive rectangular tee boxes, is beautifully framed by trees, and the clubhouse is located behind the green.

A picturesque view from the tee box greets golfers at the dogleg-left seventh hole (398 yards), with a solitary tree adding some danger down the left side of the fairway.

Coaching

Since joining forces in ’05, head coach Jim Kubinski (right) and assistant coach Steve Colnitis (left) have guided the Irish to two BIG EAST titles, two NCAA berths (2006, 2011) and finished runner-up at the BIG EAST Championship on two occasions (2007, 2010).


Head Coach Jim Kubinski Head Coach Seven Years Springfield College ‘93

One of the nation’s top golf teachers, Jim Kubinski completed his seventh season as head coach of the University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish men’s golf team in 2010-11. Having assumed the post on Jan. 28, 2005, Kubinski is just the sixth head coach in the 80-year history of the Irish men’s golf program. He inherited and subsequently added to a storied tradition that includes the 1944 NCAA national championship, 19 top-10 NCAA Championship finishes and 34 NCAA postseason appearances. In his first seven seasons leading the Irish, Kubinski has won three BIG EAST Championships (2005, 2006 & 2011) and added two BIG EAST runner-up finishes (2007 & 2010). He also has helped Notre Dame to a total of nine tournament championships and his players have collectively earned five PING All-Midwest Region honors and 17 All-BIG EAST accolades. It didn’t take long for Kubinski to make his mark at Notre Dame. In his first tournament at the helm of the Irish, just one month after setting foot on campus, Kubinski guided Notre Dame to the championship of the 2005 NOKIA Sugar Bowl Tulane Invitational, winning the title on the first hole of a sudden death playoff against UNC-Wilmington. It was the first of two tournament crowns in the 2004-05 season for Notre Dame and made Kubinski the first Irish men’s golf coach since 1961 to win the opening event of his career. That season, Rev. Clarence Durbin, C.S.C., led the Irish to a 23.5-6.5 dualmatch win over Western Michigan. That was the start of what has been a solid seven-year run for the Notre Dame skipper, who piloted the Irish to consecutive BIG EAST Conference titles in 2005 and 2006, and backto-back NCAA regional appearances both years, before accomplishing the same feat again in 2011. What’s more, Notre Dame has regularly collected votes in the Golf World Top 25 coaches’ poll and has risen as high as No. 12 in

UNIVERSITY OF

the Golfweek rankings (Oct. 2, 2005) under Kubinski. He has an overall record of 497-464-17 (.517). Under Kubinski’s guidance, Notre Dame has registered 33 top-five finishes, including eight tournament titles, two of which came in sudden-death playoffs. The Irish also have carded the top-six single-season stroke averages in school history under Kubinski, including a 291.50 in 2010-11, the best mark in program history. In addition, Notre Dame has fired 11 of the top 12 single-round scores in school history, including impressive final-round postseason efforts at the 2005 NCAA Central Regional (282, +2) and the 2006 BIG EAST Championship (school-record 272, -16). The latter score highlighted a 12-stroke comeback victory over Louisville, the second-best rally in the storied history of the Irish men’s golf program, and led to Notre Dame’s selection as the Golfweek National Team of the Week (May 1, 2006) for the first time in program history. Individually, Kubinski has produced impressive results with several Irish players in a short span of time. Cole Isban became the first threetime PING All-Midwest Region selection (200507) in program history under Kubinski’s tutelage, and graduated in May 2007 as the school record holder for single-season stroke average (72.71 in 2006-07) and is still the program’s career stroke average leader with a 73.76 mark. Josh Sandman, a 2008 PING All-Midwest Region selection and two-time all-BIG EAST pick, took up where Isban left off. Working with Kubinski, Sandman posted a 73.90 career stroke average in 111 rounds for the second best mark in program history. He also broke new ground, becoming the first Notre Dame golfer ever chosen as an individual qualifier for NCAA regional play, earning a berth in the 2008 NCAA Central Regional. He came back from injuries to play an integral role with the Irish in 2009-10. Sandman won the 2009 Fighting Irish Gridiron Golf

Classic for his first career win and graduated with four of the top-30 single season stroke averages in the Irish record books. Doug Fortner, a 2010 graduate, also experienced great success under Kubinski’s tutelage. He played 117 rounds with the Irish, carded a 74.59 career stroke average (eighth-best since 1954) and saw 102 of his rounds counted towards team scoring. As a senior, Fortner was one of four unanimous selections to the 2010 All-BIG EAST team as he became just the third player in program history to earn all-conference honors on three occasions - joining Mark Baldwin and Cole Isban in that select group. He also fired a seven-under par 64 in the opening round of the 2010 FAU Spring Break Championship to tie Baldwin for the lowest topar round in school history. Even though Sandman and Fortner, staples of the lineup over Notre Dame’s past few seasons, have graduated, Kubinski has proved adept at restocking the Irish roster with talent. Max Scodro, Chris Walker and Tom Usher became the top players for the Irish in 2010-11,

highlighted by Scodro earning medalist honors at the 2011 BIG EAST Championship (212, -1) and earning BIG EAST Player of the Year, the first time any Irish golfer has received the honor. Along with Scodro, Walker and BIG EAST Freshman of the Year Niall Platt earned all-BIG EAST honors for the year. The trio played in every round for the Irish on the season. Usher was the other Irish player to earn medalist honors during the season, taking home the title at the St. Mary’s Invitational. With the experience of Scodro, Walker and Usher augmented by the talent of Platt, Kubinski will look to lead the Irish to another historic season in 2011-12. Kubinski was nominated for the 2007 GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teachers List, honoring the nation’s preeminent golf instructors. Previous winners of the prestigious designation include Hank Haney (former teacher for 10-time PGA Tour Player of the Year Tiger Woods), Butch Harmon (swing coach for PGA Tour great and two-time Masters champion Phil Mickelson) and David Leadbetter (legendary coach for such PGA Tour luminaries and major tourna-

ment champions as Ernie Els, Nick Faldo and Greg Norman). After leading his team back to the NCAAs in 2011, Kubinski was selected as the BIG EAST Coach of Year for the first time in his head coaching tenure with the Irish. Kubinski was a three-year golf letterman and two-year team captain at Springfield (Mass.) College before graduating in 1993. A two-time all-Northeast 10 Conference selection in 1991 and 1992, he also received the Springfield College Maroon Club Award for academic and athletic achievement in 1992. His playing experience continued on the North Atlantic Tour where he tied for sixth place at the `95 Boston Open, and he also competed in the Carolinas Section PGA. Born May 4, 1970 in Springfield, Mass., Kubinski and his wife, Sarah, live in Granger, Ind. The couple has two children. Their daughter, Kelly, was born in September of 2007 and enjoys singing the Notre Dame Victory March. They celebrated the birth of their son, James, in May 2010.

Assistant Coach Steve Colnitis Assistant Coach Six Years Notre Dame ‘05

Steve Colnitis, a member of two BIG EAST Conference championship teams and two NCAA Central Regional qualifying squads at Notre Dame from 2001-05, completed his sixth year as an assistant coach for the Fighting Irish in 201011. Colnitis (pronounced coal-NIGHT-iss) aids in many of the day-to-day operations of the men’s golf program, including recruiting, practice planning and travel scheduling. In his six seasons on the Notre Dame staff, Colnitis helped guide the Irish to the 2006 and 2011 BIG EAST Conference titles and the corresponding NCAA regional berths, as well as BIG EAST runner-up finishes in 2007 and 2010. He also was instrumental in helping Notre Dame to the top six single-season stroke averages in school history (school-record 291.50 in 2010-11, 292.97 in 2005-06, 294.41 in 2009-10, 295.71 in 2006-07, 295.27 in 2007-08 and 297.97 in 200809). What’s more, Colnitis is putting his stamp on the Irish program as a recruiter. His latest success

can be seen with the past three incoming freshman classes, which included Future Collegians World Tour (FCWT) first-team All-Americans Max Scodro (who also garnered all-BIG EAST honors each of his first three years at Notre Dame as well as BIG EAST Player of the Year as a junior) and Chris Walker, along with ‘09-10 newcomer Paul McNamara III, who was an International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) firstteam All-American in 2007. Along with head coach Jim Kubinksi, Colnitis added a deep three-player class for the 2010-11 campaign that included Andrew Carreon, Andrew Lane and Niall Platt. Platt was named BIG EAST Freshman of the Year as well as earning all-BIG EAST honors in his rookie season, which concluded with a six-under 210 at the NCAA Southeast Regional. Colinitis’ recruiting success continues with the addition of Tyler Wingo, a two-time Virginia state champion, Patrick Grahek, an AJGA Scholastic All-American and 5A Georgia High School Golf Coaches Association (GHSGCA) all-state selection in 2011, as well as Peyton Vitter who will all be joining the Irish roster in the fall of 2011. “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with Steve these last six years,” head coach Jim Kubinski said. “As he’s grown within the job, he’s added more and more to our program. I know we all respect him as a person. It’s also especially helpful for me to be able to bounce ideas off Steve and know that he has a great pulse on our players and the college game. We’re fortunate to have him.” Colnitis joined the Irish coaching staff in 2005 following a four-year career on the Notre Dame men’s golf team, earning a pair of monograms

along the way. He competed in 13 tournaments during his career, posting a 77.86 stroke average, and served as a tri-captain for the Irish in 200405, helping Notre Dame earn its second-consecutive BIG EAST title and a return trip to the NCAA Central Regional (where the Irish wound up only two shots shy of advancing to the NCAA finals). Colnitis graduated from Notre Dame in May 2005, earning his bachelor’s degree in marketing from the Mendoza College of Business. He also garnered Dean’s List honors during the fall 2004 semester. Born September 15, 1982, in Baltimore, Md., Colnitis now resides in South Bend.

Season in Review

Max Scodro put together a junior season to remember, carding a career-low 73.30 stroke average in 2010-11 while claiming BIG EAST Championship medalist honors and being the first Notre Dame recipient of BIG EAST Player of the Year. His career stroke average of 73.99 ranks third all-time behind only Cole Isban (73.76) and Josh Sandman (73.90).


Season Notebook Junior-Laden Roster Returns Irish To NCAA Prominence In 2010-11 Irish gather all major BIG EAST hardware along the way as well. Individuals Shine In 2010-11 The 2010-11 golf season saw eight top-10 finishes by the highest Irish finisher at a tournament. Notre Dame placed at least one golfer in the top 10 in each of the fall tournaments with five of those being topfive finishes and two being outright victories. Tom Usher claimed the title at the St. Mary’s Invitational in October, while Max Scodro won the BIG EAST Championship to conclude the season. The remaining top-five finishes came at The Invitational at Kiawah (Niall Platt, T-2nd), The Firestone Invitational (Max Scodro, 3rd), Lone Star Invitational (Chris Walker and Niall Platt, T-3rd), the Battle at the Warren (Jeff Chen and Max Scodro, T-2nd) and to conclude the season at the NCAA Southeast Regional (Niall Platt T-10th).

Torrid Fall Season The Irish enjoyed one of their most successful fall seasons, finishing runner-up or better in each of the five tournaments. The string began with second-place finishes at The Invitational at Kiawah (12 teams), Fighting Irish Gridiron Golf Classic (14 teams), The Firestone Invitational (13 teams) and the Lone Star Invitational (12 teams), culminating in the Irish winning the final tournament of the fall season, the St. Mary’s Invitational (15 teams), by a full 20 shots over host St. Mary's.

How Low Can You Go….Again In each of the past five seasons leading into the 2010-11 campaign, the Notre Dame team has recorded one of the top-five season stroke averages. This season, however, the Irish set the bar by a wide margin for lowest stroke average after finishing the year with a 291.50 mark, besting the second-lowest total by nearly a stroke and a half set back in ’05-06 at 292.97. Two individuals, Max Scodro and Niall Platt, also fired a pair of the lowest single-season stroke averages in program history as Scodro’s 73.30 mark falls in as the sixth-lowest all-time, while Platt’s 73.40 ranks tied for eighth. Scodro also remained in third for career stroke average, but decreased his mark from 74.36 to 73.99 after the successful junior season. He trails only Cole Isban (73.76) and Josh Sandman (73.90) on the prestigious list.

BIG EAST Champs Again! In the team’s last tournament before learning its NCAA fate, Notre Dame returned to the top of the BIG EAST Conference, winning the conference tournament for the seventh time in program history and first time since ’05-06. Max Scodro led the charge for the Irish, finishing as the tournament’s individual medalist with a 54-hole score of 212 (-1). Scodro’s under-par score represented the lone total to break par of the 60 individuals in the tournament and gave the Irish their first outright medalist since Mark Baldwin topped the charts in a rain-shortened tournament back in ’04-05. In addition to Scodro, all four remaining Irish players finished in the top 35 with freshman Niall Platt (T-6th) and sophomore Paul McNamara III (T-10th) also placing in the top 10. Notre Dame ended the tournament with a 54-hole total of 876 (+24) for a six shot victory over second place Louisville (882, +30). Villanova rounded out the top three at 889 (+37).

NCAA Records Fall For Irish In 2011 Irish Notch Historic Sweep Notre Dame swept the BIG EAST Conference Men’s Golf Awards this season; the first time in the history of the conference one school has taken home all the awards. Head coach Jim Kubinski was named the BIG EAST Coach of the Year. In his seventh-year at the helm of the Irish program, Kubinski led his squad to seven top-five finishes, including tournament titles at the St. Mary’s Invitational, The Battle at the Warren and the BIG EAST Championship. He also saw two players earn medalist honors, with Scodro taking the BIG EAST title and Tom Usher winning the St. Mary’s Invitational. Junior Max Scodro was named the BIG EAST Player of the Year. Scodro finished in the top-10 in seven-of-ten tournaments on the season, while also winning the league’s individual title. He led the conference with a 73.30 scoring average. Freshman Niall Platt took home Freshman of the Year honors. Platt finished the regular season with four top-five finishes and was the only freshman to make an all-BIG EAST team. He tied for sixth at the BIG EAST Championship, the highest of any freshman in the field. Scodro and Platt, along with junior Chris Walker also were named to the 2011 all-BIG EAST team, as each wrapped up their respective seasons with sub74 stroke averages on the campaign. Along with the postseason recognition, Usher also was twice honored by the conference during the season. Usher was chosen as the BIG EAST Golfer of the Week for March 23 on the heels of a 20th-place performance at the Schenkel Invitational, while also receiving BIG EAST Golfer of the Month for October after claiming his first-career medalist honor at the St. Mary’s Invitational.

UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME®

Although no one on the current Irish roster had experienced any NCAA postseason play up until this season, Notre Dame showed very little nerves in its return to the NCAA Regionals. The team wrapped up their regional in ninth place after carding a three-day total of 865 (+1). Along the way, several of Notre Dame’s NCAA records fell by the wayside, including the best 54-hole finish, which was established by the 865 score. That mark bested the old record by a full 12 shots. Additional team records that were set included highest overall finish, which previously stood at 12th place back in ’05. The finalround score of 287 also places as the second-lowest, single-round score in NCAA play for the Irish. Individually, several records fell as well. Freshman Niall Platt’s individual performance of 210 (-6) goes down as the best 54-hole score, besting Eric Deutsch’s 215 in ’05, while Platt’s share of 10th place overall also sets a new precedent as he improved on Deutsch’s share of 20th in the ’05 regional. Sophomore Paul McNamara III would not be outdone, setting the bar for the lowest single-round score in NCAA competition after firing a third round 67 (-5) to conclude his tournament at even par (216) and a top-25 finish. It is the first time for the Irish that two members of their rotation placed within the top 25 in one year at a regional.

Tournament Notes: Notre Dame marked its return to NCAA Regional competition with a ninth-place showing after finishing the 54 holes with a teamtotal of 865 (+1) ... the team score of 865 goes into the record books as the lowest 54-hole total the Irish have ever carded, while the 287 (-1) third round is the second-lowest single-round score ever put together by Notre Dame ... Niall Platt broke several Irish NCAA records, becoming the highest individual Notre Dame finisher (T-10th) after putting together the lowest 54-hole score (210, -6) since the format switched to 54 holes back in 1989 ... Paul McNamara also went into the record books, shooting the lowest single-round mark (67, -5) by one shot over the previous record, which had been fired three times previous including Platt’s first round 68 ... McNamara’s tournament total of 216 (E) also marked his best finish, to date, as a member of the Irish ... Jeff Chen returned to the rotation for the first time since the opening tournament of the season (The Invite at Kiawah) and finished third amongst the Irish rotation with a three-day tally of 219 (+3).

From a student-organized start in 1923, through the eras of two coaching priests, Notre Dame has established itself among the finest schools in college golf. During their first 42 years alone, the Irish were victorious more than 350 times while winning the 1944 NCAA title, 13 state crowns and several tournament championships.

The Early Years Golf had its beginnings at Notre Dame in 1922, when students from the South introduced the sport to their Northern counterparts. In only one year, these addicts, known as the “snicker sisters,” had sparked enough interest that a tournament was held at the South Bend municipal links. Paul McNulty won the first championship. A full-fledged team with non-varsity status was organized in 1923, but was unsuccessful in its two dual meets. The squad played six matches the following season, winning five and losing to Northwestern by a point. In the late 20s, the University opened a golf course on the west side of campus and dedicated it to the land’s donor, William J. Burke. The installation of the 18-hole layout proved to be a prime reason behind the 1930 approval by the University for golf to become a varsity sport at Notre Dame. While the athletic department took over the responsibilities of scheduling and expenses, the golf team continued to function without a head coach. During this three-year period, the Irish were able to win 17 straight meets. The squad twice won the Indiana state meet and twice finished among the top three nationally. The search for a golf coach ended in 1933, when the University president, Rev. John O’Hara, C.S.C, appointed the Rev. George Holderith, C.S.C, as head coach. Known as the father of Notre Dame golf for his 29-year interest and participation in the sport, Fr. Holderith’s team promptly ran off a record 20 straight wins. Notre Dame continued its dominance through the 1930s, recording eight consecutive Indiana state crowns in addition to seven consecutive top-10 finishes in the NCAA Championship. In 1934, Notre Dame became the first school ever to qualify five players for the NCAA match play championship.

Championship Magic The 1940s era of Notre Dame golf saw the school reach the ultimate in its sport — an NCAA championship. That ultimate accomplishment came in 1944, when the foursome of James Besenfelder, Jack Fitzpatrick, Bob Terry and captain Mel Wilke, combined for a 311 score at the famed Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio. Two years earlier, the Irish had played host to the 1942 NCAAs, which were held at the South Bend Country Club as part of Notre Dame’s 100th anniversary celebration. In 1946, Dick Whiting became the second of Notre Dame’s four first-team All-Americans. The 1950s provided more bright spots for the Irish. A third-place finish in the 1951 NCAAs more than made up for one of only two losing seasons in the first 22 years of Notre Dame golf history. Two of

Notre Dame’s best shotmakers played for the Irish in the ’50s: first team All-Americans Tom Veech and Tom Matey. Later in the decade, second-team AllAmerican Joe Grace and third-teamer Charles Thurn led the Irish to 37 victories over three seasons. Change was the keynote of the 1960s. Large tournaments, some including as many as 20 teams, replaced dual meets due to financial and academic pressures. The Irish also changed coaches, as Rev. Clarence Durbin, C.S.C., returned to his alma mater, the University of Portland. During his 11-year tenure at Notre Dame, Fr. Durbin tutored several AllAmericans, including Joe Grace’s brother, Tom, and the record-setting Mike O’Connell. The 1964 squad took fourth in the NCAAs, with the squad returning intact in ’65 to defeat 18 opponents. With nearly 350 wins between them, Fr. Holderith and Fr. Durbin combined to instruct several noteworthy players. Winfield Day (1934-36) was a prolific scorer and won the Notre Dame Open four years in a row. All-American Larry Moller served as one of the program’s early leaders and finished as runner-up in the 1930 NCAAs. Tom Sheehan captained two Irish squads, earned All-America designation in 1939 and broke Bobby Jones’ qualifying record at the U. S. Amateur. Veech gained his All-America recognition in 1949, after defeating a young upstart from Wake Forest named Arnold Palmer. Matey followed in the sizable footsteps of the 6-3, 300-pound Veech. Matey earned All-America honors in 1951 while qualifying for the U.S. Open and three NCAA match play championships. Tom Grace remains the only two-time All-America selection in Notre Dame history (’61, ’62) and turned in a memorable 36-hole record of 135 during his career. The Irish golf program also welcomed future pro-


in 1995-96, when Notre Dame joined the BIG EAST Conference. The move provided plenty of excitement for the Irish right from the start, as Notre Dame won three consecutive conference titles — two by a single stroke (1996 and 1997) and by 13 strokes in 1998. The ’96 crown was particularly satisfying, as the Irish rebounded from a 13-shot first-round deficit to claim (at the time) the 36-hole title. That comeback remains the largest in school history. Medalist Bill Moore led Notre Dame to that first BIG EAST championship, while two-year co-captains Brian Donohoe and Joel Hepler played major roles in the first two conference titles. Todd Vernon’s medalist finish then proved to be the highlight of the ’98 BIG EAST crowning for the Irish.

Return To Excellence

fessional great Billy Casper to campus in 1950. Casper never had the chance to play for Notre Dame, due to a naval assignment in Korea following his first and only semester. Veech recorded the highest finish of a Notre Dame golfer in a major professional event, placing fifth (behind champion Jack Nicklaus) in the 1967 Western Open at the Beverly Country Club in Chicago.

New Challenges Noel O’Sullivan inherited the Irish golf program in the fall of 1973 and remained the director of the program for the next 15 years. Leaders of the program during the second half of the 1970s included Jeff Burda, Paul Koprowski, Tim Saurs and brothers Rich and Dave Knee. The Irish turned in solid seasons throughout the 1980s, with players such as James “Stoney” Ferlmann, Dave Moorman, two-time team captain John O’Donovan and Dick Connelly leading the squad during the final years of the O’Sullivan era. In the fall of 1988, George Thomas became the fourth coach in the program’s history. Thomas inherited a solid group of returnees, led by co-captains Doug Giorgio and Pat Mohan, and the first-year coach guided the Irish into the 1990s with the focus on remaining competitive within the Midwest. The early leaders of the 1990s included 1992-93 co-captains Chris Dayton and Joe Dennen and brothers Mike and Chris O’Connell (a two-year captain). The Irish finished as the runner-up at the first four Midwestern Collegiate Conference Championships of the 1990s before capturing the ’94-’95 title in their final year in the league. The program experienced a renaissance of sorts

It would be another six years before Notre Dame returned to the top of the BIG EAST mountain for another three-year run of excellence. Building a bridge between those title runs were such talents as Brad Hardin, Willie Kent, Jeff Connell, Alex Kent and Steve Ratay, all of whom rank among the top 20 golfers in school history. Connell (2000) and Ratay (200102) also strung together three consecutive Academic All-America selections, a first in the program’s illustrious history. Adding to the rebirth of the Irish golf program was the construction of the Warren Golf Course, which made its debut in 2000. Made possible by a generous donation from 1956 Notre Dame alumnus Bill Warren, the par-70, 7,011-yard track was designed by PGA Tour veteran Ben Crenshaw and noted course architect Bill Coore and remains a cornerstone on the northern edge of the Notre Dame campus. A sparkling new practice arena — the 10,333-square foot Rolfs Family Varsity All-Season Facility — was added in 2006, offering Notre Dame players and coaches not only expanded locker room and office space, but a state-of-the-art chipping/ putting area and fully-equipped tee stations and hitting bays. The newest chapter in the Irish golf story began during the diamond anniversary season of 2003-04, as Notre Dame reclaimed the BIG EAST Championship, winning the conference title and an automatic berth in the NCAA Central Regional, taking the Irish back to postseason play for the first time in 38 seasons. It would be the first of three consecutive BIG EAST titles and NCAA regional berths for Notre Dame, with the Irish just missing a trip to the NCAA finals in 2004 (by four shots) and 2005 (by two shots). With the arrival of current head coach Jim Kubinski in January 2005, Notre Dame soared to new heights, finishing fourth or better in four of its seven spring 2005 tournaments. Cole Isban also made history, becoming the first Notre Dame golfer in 25 years to earn regional or national honors with a spot on the PING All-Midwest Region Team. The 2005-06 campaign was a landmark one that saw the Irish shatter the school’s stroke average record with a sharp 292.97 ratio and featured four starters shooting better than 74.00 for the season. Ranked as high as 12th nationally during the fall, Notre Dame carded five top-five finishes, but none was more impressive than its sudden-death playoff win at the BIG EAST Championship (which featured a 12-shot final-round comeback, as well as school records for 18 holes [272] and 54 holes [842]). Isban earned a return trip to the all-region squad after

posting a school-record 72.97 stroke average with four top-10 finishes. Isban became the first three-time all-region pick in 2007, while also passing the torch to Josh Sandman, who went on to garner his own all-region citation a year later with five consecutive top-10 finishes at the end of the regular season. He also became the first Irish individual ever chosen for NCAA regional play and graduated with the second best stroke average in program history (73.90). Meanwhile, Notre Dame has continued to build a solid team foundation, carding the top five stroke averages in school history from 2005-06 through 2010-11, culminating with the program's best team average (291.50) in '10-11. A trio of juniors in Max Scodro, Tom Usher and Chris Walker led the Irish back to NCAA tournament play in 2010-11. After finishing first or second in every fall tournament, as well as in two spring tournaments, Notre Dame took home its seventh BIG EAST title in 2011. Scodro led the charge, carding a 212 (-1) that earned him medalist honors, while Walker and freshman Niall Platt also earned all-BIG EAST honors. They capped the season with a ninth place finish at the NCAA Southeast Regional on the heels of a three-round score of 865 (+1).

Byron V. Kanaley Award The most prestigious honor awarded to a Notre Dame student-athlete, the Byron V. Kanaley Award has been presented each year since 1927 to the senior monogram athletes who have been most exemplary as both students and leaders. The awards, presented by the Faculty Board on Athletics, are named in honor of a Weedsport, N.Y., native and 1904 Notre Dame graduate who was a member of the Irish baseball team as an undergraduate. Kanaley went on to a successful banking career in Chicago and served the University as a lay trustee from 1915 until his death in 1960. The Notre Dame men’s golf team has produced two winners of the award. Steve Ratay (Arlington Heights, Ill.), received the honor following the 2002 season, joining 1962 winner, Al Highducheck (Waterbury, Conn.). Ratay finished his Notre Dame career as one of the top golfers in the program’s storied history. A two-time Academic All-American (2001, 2002), Ratay graduated with the program’s lowest single-season average (73.03) in 2001-02 and finished his career with the second-best average (74.46 in 105 career rounds). Highducheck helped the Irish finish 17th at the 1962 NCAA Tournament. He appeared in 18 regular-season matches as a senior during that 1962 season while ranking second on the team with 76.2 strokes per round.

UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME

History z

z

The University of Notre Dame du Lac was founded in 1842 by Father Edward Sorin. Adjacent to South Bend, Ind., and nestled next to St. Mary’s and Saint Joseph’s Lakes, the University was started with $310 in cash and three log buildings in disrepair. Notre Dame would establish many firsts for Catholic institutions of higher learning, including the first Catholic law school, the first Catholic engineering school and the first student residence with private rooms, Sorin Hall.

Academics z

z z z

The University is organized into four colleges – Arts and Letters, Science, Engineering and the Mendoza College of Business – the School of Architecture, the Law School, the Graduate School, six major research institutes, more than 40 centers and special programs and the University library system. Notre Dame is rated among the nation’s top-25 institutions of higher learning in surveys conducted by U.S. News and World Report, Princeton Review, Time, Kiplinger’s and Kaplan/Newsweek. The Mendoza College of Business is ranked #1 among the nation’s top undergraduate business schools by Bloomberg BusinessWeek. Notre Dame is among a select group of schools that ranks in the top 30 on the U.S. News & World Report survey of the nation’s top colleges and in the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Directors’ Cup for overall success in athletics.

Students z z z z

Graduate and undergraduate students at the University come from all 50 states 100 countries worldwide. Notre Dame’s graduation rate of 95 percent is exceeded by only Harvard and Princeton. Notre Dame’s 98 percent retention rate between the freshman and sophomore years is among the highest in the country, thanks in large part to the University’s unique First Year of Studies Program. Notre Dame has one of the highest undergraduate residential concentrations of any national university, with 80 percent of its students living in 29 residence halls.

z z

The medical school acceptance rate of the University’s preprofessional studies graduates is 80 percent, almost twice the national average. Notre Dame ranks first among Catholic universities in the number of doctorates earned by its undergraduate alumni – a record compiled over some 85 years.

Service z

z

Community service is a hallmark of Notre Dame. About 80 percent of Notre Dame students engage in some form of voluntary community service during their years at the University, and at least 10 percent devote a year or more after graduation to service in the United States and around the world. The University’s Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) annually sends 180 recent graduates to teach in some 100 understaffed Catholic schools in the southern, southeastern and southwestern United States and in South Bend. A national model, ACE has received the Higher Education Award from the Corporation for National Service for leadership in using national service resources through AmeriCorps.

Alumni z z

z

The University’s network of nearly 270 alumni clubs – including 60 international clubs – is the most extensive in higher education. With graduates renowned for their loyalty and generosity, Notre Dame annually ranks among the top-five in percentage of alumni who contribute to the University. In recent years, Notre Dame alumni have won a Nobel Prize in medicine, a Pulitzer Prize in journalism and an Emmy Award for contributions to television technology.
