New Golf Center Construction - COMPLETE

The final touches were put on the new Dianne Dailey Golf Learning Center last week and the teams have begun to use the facility. The center was officially opened on Saturday, May 1, when a formal ceremony was held to dedicate the building to Coach Dailey. It was a beautiful sunny day and the learning center looked great.

The grass has started to turn green all around the range and the two new greens up by the main practice tee will be ready to use shortly. Coach Dailey made mention of how useful the entire complex was in preparing the women's team for the ACC Championships, which they would go on to win. The team was able to setup and practice every type of shot it was going to need that week.

A look in at the main part of the new learning center. The hitting bays are to the left, the new rooms are on the right and the putting room is at the far end.

The first two rooms on the right as you come in the main door will be storage rooms. The first will be general storage and the second will be club storage.

The next room as you make your way in will be a club repair room.

The next two rooms are essential. They will be men's and women's restrooms.

The final two rooms along the south side of the building will be smaller storage rooms.

This room will be the new tech-room and it is located between the main hitting bay and the putting room. The large openings that can be seen will contain windows to view each area from the room.
