Practice Facility Taking Shape

Preparations for the Bobcats’ golf program are moving along at a steady pace.  Head coach Chris Larsen reports that 11 students (10 men and one woman) are regularly practicing at the Buffalo Ridge Springs Golf Course under the watchful eyes and instruction provided by the College’s director of golf “Smiley” Jones and himself.

Improvements on campus that will provide a pitching, chipping, and putting facility for student athletes are progressing nicely.  A picture taken September 21 displays the initial ground work to prepare the facility.  In true “Hard Work U” fashion, today the College’s landscape team tackled the task of laying the newly donated sod.  As noted in the pictures, the putting green was finished up this morning, the pitch & chip area is now sodded, and the tee boxes are well on their way (with a little help from Dean/Coach Larsen).

Check back for more updates as the College continues to move forward with the men’s and women’s golf program.
