MGoBlue.com is reporting that today the Regents approved designs for a new Men's and Women's Golf practice facility.
The $2.5 million, 10,000 gross-square-foot facility designed by Ann Arbor Architects Collaborative will be funded by athletic resources and gifts. The new building, set off South Main Street on the west side of the driving range of the U-M Golf Course, will provide space for functional training, meeting and practice for golf teams.
The golf practice facility will provide year-round practice with a putting and chipping area and driving bays to utilize the existing driving range. The facility also will provide a team gathering space, coaching staff offices, locker rooms, a conference room and storage. Construction is scheduled to be complete in summer 2011.
Men's Golf Coach Andrew Sapp:
"This facility will be an incredible asset for our players as we prepare each winter for the spring season."
Women's Golf Coach Cheryl Stacy:
"This facility will enhance our program's ability to practice during the winter months, providing an environment for our players to continually work on their technique. It has been an enjoyable experience working with the designers and seeing this project from the ground up and we are looking forward to its completion."
Based on the location description, the facility will be located right around here:
It's great to see that the Athletic Campus upgrades are accruing to so many sports.
