A.L. Gustin Golf Course - Cross Country
Home to the Missouri men's and women's cross country teams, the A.L. Gustin Golf Course was created in 1957. Located on the west side of the University of Missouri-Columbia campus, the course provides dramatic settings and challenging hills that prove a true test for even the strongest cross country runners. The 18-hole, 6,430-yard course is set up once a year for a 5K and 8K cross country meet.
In a race for first, several individuals have set exceptional times on the A.L. Gustin Golf Course. Missouri's Ryan Hampton was a junior in 2002 when he set a time of 24:28.79, (8K), at the Big 12 Championships on Nov. 2. On the women's side, Valerie Lauver set Missouri's best time (17:18.09), on the 5K course at the 2002 Missouri Cross Country Challenge on Sept. 14.
Over the years, the course has played host to several home cross country meets as well as the Big 12 Cross Country Championships (2002 & 2009), NCAA Midwest Regional Cross Country Championships (1982 and 1990) and the Missouri State High School Cross Country Championships (1963-1975).

- Over the past 12 years of competition, 10 Tiger men and eight Mizzou women have claimed Missouri Cross Country titles on the A.L. Gustin Golf Course
- Missouri's Ryan Hampton set the current best time (24:28.79) on the 8K A.L. Gustin Golf Course, while Tiger Valerie Lauver set the best women's 5K (17:18.09) time in 2002.
