The Haddock House, named for former men's golf coach Jesse Haddock ('52), opened in the spring of 2016. The $4.5 million facility serves as the home for the men's and women's golf programs while also showcasing the history and tradition of Wake Forest golf.

"With the Arnold Palmer Golf Complex, we are fortunate to have one of the best training facilities in college golf. The Haddock House is the finishing touch that provides us with a clubhouse that our players and staff can call home, while also serving as a source of pride that reflects the rich history and tradition of our prestigious program. We are extremely grateful for the generous support of our alumni, donors and fans who helped make this possible," said head men's golf coach Jerry Haas.

"The Haddock House is going to have a tremendous impact on our program, not just benefiting our staff and current players, but also showcasing for recruits the many accomplishments of our past and exemplifying the University's commitment to the continued success of Wake Forest golf," said head women's golf coach Dianne Dailey.

The completion of the Haddock House - a 10,000 square foot building that provides a true home for the men's and women's golf programs - marked the final phase of the transformation of the Arnold Palmer Golf Complex into one of the finest on-campus collegiate golf training facilities in the country.

The Haddock House, situated in the southwest corner of the Arnold Palmer Golf Complex, features coaches' offices, locker rooms, team meeting areas and a Heritage Room that showcases the history of Wake Forest Golf. The Heritage Room and other adaptable spaces within the building will also be available for use for campus events, gatherings and receptions. A landscaped green space featuring the recently erected statue of Arnold Palmer leads to its entrance off Wingate Road.

As part of Wake Will: The Campaign for Wake Forest, golf alumni, family and friends, joined in a special fundraising effort to name the new facility for Jesse Haddock, the legendary men's golf coach who put Wake Forest golf on the map. In his more than 30-year coaching career from 1960-92, Haddock led the Deacons to three national titles (1974, 1975, 1986) and 15 ACC titles. The Deacons won 10 conference crowns in a row from 1967 to 1976, and finished second in the NCAA tourney three times. A number of his stars went on to outstanding careers on the PGA tour, including Curtis Strange ('77), Lanny Wadkins ('72), Jay Haas ('76), Jerry Haas ('85), Scott Hoch ('78), Gary Hallberg ('80), Jay Sigel ('67), Billy Andrade ('87), Jim Simons and Len Mattiace. Sixty-three Deacons earned All-American honors during his tenure. For his many notable accomplishments, Haddock was named to the College Golf Coaches Hall of Fame, the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame, the Wake Forest Sports Hall of Fame and the Carolinas Golf Hall of Fame. He was national coach of the year three times, and twice was selected to coach the Japan/USA NCAA all-stars.

"Without Jesse Haddock, Wake Forest golf would not be where it is today. During his tenure as head coach, Jesse's focus on recruiting and developing players both on the course and off led to some of the greatest successes our department has seen. He not only understood the value of hard work, but he also knew how to motivate his players, bring out the best in them and create a lasting sense of family. From his many outstanding accomplishments to the strong relationships that endure today, Jesse's impact on Wake Forest golf will continue to be felt for generations to come, so it is only fitting that we honor him with the naming of the building that the program calls home," said Director of Athletics Ron Wellman.
