Warren Golf Course Marks 15th Year of Excellence

William Warren, a 1956 graduate of the University of Notre Dame, returned to campus on Sept. 4 to help celebrate the 15th anniversary of the University's award-winning Warren Golf Course, which bears the name of Warren's parents, William and Natalie.

From a wooded tract of land on the northeast corner of the University of Notre Dame campus, the Warren Golf Course sprang to life in 2000, thanks to the incredible generosity of William Warren ('56), who contributed the resources to make the championship layout possible. Warren, who used his Notre Dame education to create a successful business career in Tulsa, Oklahoma, named the course in honor of his parents, William and Natalie, and called upon the esteemed golf course design firm of Coore & Crenshaw to create a challenging layout that quickly took its place as one of the elite college courses in the nation. In fact, to this day, the Warren Golf Course remains the only college course that Bill Coore and his longtime business partner Ben Crenshaw (a PGA Tour Hall of Famer and two-time Masters champion) have chosen to develop.

On Sept, 4, Warren, Coore and Crenshaw were back in South Bend to take part in a special day of celebration, recognizing the 15th anniversary of the Warren Golf Course's official opening, which took place on May 1, 2000. A scramble golf tournament teed off the day's events, which culminated with a memorable dinner program just behind the 18th green at the Warren Golf Course. During the evening program, the current Notre Dame golf teams were represented as student-athletes Blake Barens and Talia Campbell delivered heartfelt remarks on behalf of the Fighting Irish men's and women's teams, respectively. University vice president and director of athletics Jack Swarbrick and Notre Dame vice president for university relations Lou Nanni also offered their thanks to the Warren family and its foundation for their ongoing support of the University and Warren Golf Course general manager John Foster presented William Warren with a framed course flag as a token of appreciation.

Warren himself provided the night's signature moment, donning a blue Notre Dame-monogrammed cowboy hat while recognizing both his alma mater and giving a friendly tip of the 10-gallon to the weekend's football opponent (and Crenshaw's alma mater), the University of Texas.

Fighting Irish Media was on hand for the Warren Golf Course 15th anniversary celebration and was able to capture the sights and sounds of the event through photos (linked in the gallery at the top of this page) and video of the speeches by Barens, Campbell and Swarbrick, plus Foster's award presentation to William Warren and exclusive comments by Crenshaw on the Warren Golf Course itself.
