    will still be able to hit in the rain and what not
    That is correct. Also the video equipment stays inside and set up. It saves on wear and tear on the equipment. Practice can happen in the rain. The inside is sloped to prevent ricochet of ball back to hitter. Two bays are for exclusive use of UL golf the third is for Oakbourne Members. There will be a repair shop for clubs in the hitting building. The other building will have locker room, coaches office and storage.

    ---Generally speaking do golfers that sign with UL lower their scores significantly over their career here? What kind of improvement is say average? Do our golfers shoot below, par, or above par???

    I know that Coach Theo is highly thought of and has really brought in some nice talent the last few years. I think this facility will go a long way for years to come, with regards to refuting as much as improving. College golf is a little confusing to follow at times, but we did have a guy in the NCAA's last year.

    Oakbourne has officially taken over the buildings. The contractor was not responsible for sprinkler system, landscaping and grass.

    This is a view from the entrance drive.



    This is a view of the Office, locker room. This facade faces the driving range.



    This is the rear of the practice facility. This facade faces the entrance drive to the country club.



    This is the driving range facade of the practice facility. Two bays are for the exclusive use of the golf team one is for Oakbourne





    This is the view out to the driving range from one of the bays.
