Wake Forest boasts one of the elite on-campus golf practice facilities in the country in the Arnold Palmer Golf Complex. The newly redesigned complex, which was completed in the spring of 2010, features the Jesse I. Haddock Golf Center and the new Dianne Dailey Golf Learning Center.
The complex features over 17 acres of 419 Tif Bermuda grass, five chipping and putting greens and 24 practice bunkers. Practice tees are situated around the entire complex to allow players to hit in any direction.
The focal point of the renovation was the 3,500 square foot Dianne Dailey Golf Learning Center. Named for current women's golf head coach Dianne Dailey, the center is equipped with the latest, state-of-the-art technology and has been highly regarded as one of the best training facilities on the east coast, if not in the country.
The Learning Center has heated hitting bays, which allow up to five people to hit simultaneously, and includes one bay that is equipped with a state-of-the-art V1 filming system and the newest TrackMan technology. The Learning Center also includes an indoor putting room that utilizes the Tomi video system, as well as a club repair and a club storage room.
The Jesse I. Haddock Golf Center was dedicated on the Wake Forest campus in October of 1988 and is named after the legendary coach who put Demon Deacon golf on the map. In a 30-year coaching career from 1962-92, Haddock led the Deacons to three national titles (1974, 1975, 1986) and 15 ACC titles.
The Haddock Center serves as the headquarters of the Wake Forest men's golf program and features three enclosed hitting bays, the Lanny Wadkin Players' Lounge, a video studio and offices for the coaching staff.
