Detailed description of Memorial Stadium Golf Course, CLOSED 2002

Memorial Stadium Golf Course is a 9-hole public golf course located in Terre Haute, Indiana.

Memorial Stadium Golf Course was opened in 1932. The course was a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project.

Memorial Stadium Golf Course was located at the Northeast corner of Wabash and Brown avenues, situated on 51.3 acres that circumvented Memorial Stadium

Memorial Stadium strated off as "the finest minor league baseball facility in the world." Baseball closed in Terre Haute in the 1950's and Memorial Stadium, the home field for Indiana State's NCAA Football. Former ISU coach Dennis Raetz remembers that golf and football sometimes made for a difficult marriage. Players practicing on the east side of the field needed their helmets for more than gridiron action. Raetz said he used to collect golf balls from the field before practice.

The golf course closed in 2002, 33 years after the old baseball stadium was razed to configure the stadium for Indiana State University football.
