At Dartmouth it's a common sight to see a college golfer walking down Rope Ferry Road toward Hanover Country Club with a couple of clubs under one arm and then later see that same person with a pile of textbooks in Baker Library. That's the way it is at Dartmouth, where a stimulating academic environment goes hand-in-hand with a wealth of rewarding athletic and recreational opportunities.

Now well into its third century, Dartmouth College complements its nationally acclaimed reputation in the classroom with a range of athletic and recreational pursuits second to none. From stately Baker Library to stunning Berry Sports Center, from Kiewit Computation Center to Hopkins Center for the Arts, Dartmouth offers only the finest to its diverse student body of 4,200 undergraduates.

The Dartmouth faculty is a distinguished group of men and women who enjoy as much renown for their commitment to teaching as they do for scholarly research and publications. Students from throughout the United States and dozens of other nations benefit from resources that support Dartmouth's graduate schools in business, medicine, engineering and liberal arts, though the undergraduate experience is definitely the focus of the College.

Set among the rolling hills of Hanover, N.H., Dartmouth is the smallest and northernmost Ivy League school and a mecca for the outdoor and sports minded student. The wide array of sports offered at the College runs the spectrum from baseball to crew, lacrosse, field hockey and squash, to list only a few of more than 30 varsity sports. Recreational opportunities range from one of the most extensive intramural programs in the nation to skiing on the College's breathtakingly beautiful land, to hiking the nearby Appalachian Trail or kayaking on the Connecticut River at the edge of campus.

Students at Dartmouth enroll in three or four terms during each academic year according to the innovative Dartmouth Plan. The widely-heralded Plan breaks the traditional pattern of nine straight months of study with the summers off. It provides students with flexibility in arranging academic schedules, off-campus study opportunities, foreign study programs around the globe, internships and vacations.

Members of the Dartmouth women's golf team make full use of the Big Green's athletic facilities. These include:

Hanover Country Club is home to both the Dartmouth men's and women's golf teams. A classic, New England-style course, HCC measures 5,876 yards on the long course and 5,468 on the short. It is not uncommon to see the Dartmouth women play the long course which requires a more challenging variety of shots. The first five holes and No. 18 (called "The Loop") are laid out near the clubhouse. Holes Nos. 6-17 are on the other side of the property near Lyme Road and are separated by a deep gully, one of the noteworthy characteristics of HCC. Golfers use a bridge to traverse the gully and are required to carry it with their tee shots on Nos. 6 and 18. HCC's small greens place a premium on an accurate short game. On the other side of Lyme Road is a driving range area and four practice holes, where college golfers can use their own shag balls to fine-tune their games. Collegiate golfers store their clubs and shoes in a special team room at the HCC clubhouse. College golfers are not assessed any fees for play or practice at HCC, and club/shoe storage is complimentary for Big Green players.

In addition, members of the Dartmouth men's golf team are just a short drive away from Fore-U Golf Center, situated on Rte. 12-A in West Lebanon, N.H. Approximately 10 minutes away from campus, the center is owned and operated by Meredith and Jennifer Johnson. Captain of the 1997-98 Dartmouth women's golf team, Meredith was an Academic All-Ivy selection in spring of 1998 and a four-year letterwinner in women's golf for the Big Green. When golfers want to get a taste of something different, there are several other fine courses located in the Upper Valley area, including Country Club of New Hampshire (Sutton, N.H.), Green Mountain National Golf Course (Killington, Vt.) which has hosted Futures Tour events, Eastman Golf Links (Grantham, N.H.), Quechee Golf Club (Quechee, Vt.), Woodstock Country Club (Woodstock, Vt.) and Crown Point (Springfield, Vt.).
