About Great River Golf Club (Sacred Heart University)
Great River Golf Club in Milford, CT is a championship design by Tommy Fazio in 1999 on a 1½ mile stretch of undulating terrain along the Housatonic River. The course features two distinct 9-hole landscapes, with the front side weaving through lower tidal wetlands and the links-style back side elevating high above the Housatonic. In 2015, Sacred Heart University of nearby Fairfield, CT purchased Great River Golf Club with the vision of developing a unique model within the golf industry, college athletic, and university academic structures. In addition to serving a private membership of 300 alumni & local community members, Great River is the home site of the Sacred Heart Men’s & Women’s Division I Golf Teams with coaching offices, indoor training facilities, and golf instruction staff located inside the Clubhouse. In the Fall of 2018, SHU launched a Bachelors of Science Hospitality Program for students pursuing a career in Club Management with Great River as a launching pad for academic field experience, and the university is currently in the midst of developing curriculum & receiving certification from the PGA of America to being a new PGM Program for Golf Professionals. Sacred He...art University is seeking to transform the infrastructure & conditioning of the golf course to the highest championship standards to eventually host professional events & NCAA Div. I Tournaments.
