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's 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.

An outdoor putting green, equipped with several practice bunkers for added difficulty around the green provide the players a chance to work on all facets of their games, while the driving range allows ample space for all members of both the men's and women's teams to practice their distance control before stepping up to Warren Golf Course.

A 5,000-square foot indoor short game area allows the players to make the move indoors when mother nature does not allow for outdoor play and includes a putting green, chip and pitch area, and a practice bunker that allows the student athletes to practice their short game year-round on campus.

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 both players and coaches instant feedback on players' swing techniques. Each student athlete has their own custom-made wood locker (with personalized nameplate and ample storage space) located inside the Fighting Irish locker rooms.

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 full-service club repair room, which is located in the southern wing of the facility.

"The Rolfs Varsity Golf Building is the very best college golf facility in the country. I always smile when I hear visitors tell me that they assumed it would be good, but that they never imagined it to be THAT good. Our indoor facility, with its unique full-sized green, offers so many great short game shots, from putting to pitching to bunker shots. Yet, only a few steps away, we can tee it up from a sheltered area and hit right on to our outdoor driving range. We're fortunate to call this amazing facility the home of Fighting Irish golf!" - Notre Dame Men's Golf head coach Jim Kubinski

"We are seeing an immediate impact with recruiting and that will only make our program stronger by bringing in top-level talent. The facility will also allow us to get quality practice time all year round. The putting and chipping areas are extremely nice and very authentic." - Notre Dame Women's Golf head coach Susan Holt.
