warren.jpgNotre Dame's Warren Golf Course has been chosen as one of the top 15 college courses in the nation, according to Golfweek Magazine. To qualify for the Golfweek's Best Campus Courses list, a course must be part of a school's recreational life in terms of preferential access for students, faculty and alumni.

Last year, Golfweek ranked the Warren Golf Course as the 14th-best college golf course. This year the home course of the Irish moved up two notches to 12th, passing the likes of the University of Michigan Golf Course and Duke University Golf Course.

Co-designed by Bill Coore and PGA Tour veteran Ben Crenshaw, the Warren Golf Course opened on May 1, 2000, and has played host to three U.S. Amateur Championship qualifiers, the 2005 and 2010 men's NCAA Central Regional, the 2011 women's NCAA Central Regional, three Western Amateur Championship qualifiers, five BIG EAST Conference Men's Championships and three BIG EAST Women's Championships. In addition, the par-70, 7,020-yard tree-lined layout has welcomed numerous junior golf tournaments and serves as the home course for the Notre Dame men's and women's golf teams.

The Warren Golf Course also has been recognized nationally and internationally for excellence in several other major publications. The Warren Golf Course was selected as one of the nation's top 15 on-campus college courses in 2005 according to a feature article in Golf Digest. In 2008, the course was rated as the second-best course in the state of Indiana according to Golfweek as part of its series "America's Best Courses: State-by-State Rankings of Best Public Access Courses."

Scodro earns the recognition off of his most successful collegiate season with the Irish that saw him post the lowest stroke average on the team at 73.30. In addition, Scodro finished as the team's top finisher at two tournaments while earning a share of top finisher at one other event.

The Chicago, Ill., native also was named the 2011 BIG EAST Men's Player of the Year after earning medalist honors at the conference championship. He concluded the 54-hole event as the only player in the field below par with a three-round score of 212 (-1).

Scodro prepares to enter his final season following a successful summer amateur circuit that most recently saw him qualify for the match play portion of the U.S. Amateur. He earned a spot in the 64-player, single-elimination draw after finishing three under par (139) during the stroke play portion of the event.

Only the top 10 players selected to the College Players to Watch list are ranked by Golf World. Patrick Cantlay (UCLA), the golfer who defeated Scodro in match play at the U.S. Amateur, headlines the list after claiming NCAA Player of the Year honors last season. The remainder of the top 10 features Peter Uihlein (Oklahoma State), Chris Williams (Washington), Andrew Yun (Stanford), Luke Guthrie (Illinois), James White (Georgia Tech), Blayne Barber (Auburn), Jordan Spieth (Texas), Alex Ching (San Diego) and Patrick Rodgers (Stanford).
