    Robert & Marilyn Rolfs Family All-Season Varsity Golf Facility Update

    July 20, 2006

    Construction continues on the Robert & Marilyn Rolfs Family All-Season Varsity Golf Facility on the northeast portion of campus. The photos are provided by Mike Bennett from Lighthouse Imaging.

    The front entrance to the $2.1 million facility is taking shape. Fully-furnished locker rooms for both the Irish men's and women's golf teams and offices for the respective coaching staffs, as well as a players lounge and club repair room, will be located in this southern wing of the building (photo taken from southeast corner/Douglas Road side).

    This view of the eastern side of the Rolfs Facility shows not only the locker room and office wing near the front entrance (left side of photo), but also the expansive hitting bays and a nearly 5,000-square foot indoor short game area that includes a putting green, chip and pitch area and practice bunker. The current outdoor putting green can be seen in the foreground.

    A closer look at one of the two hitting bays in the facility. The sliding garage doors open out onto the driving range and allow players to work on their swings in all weather conditions. What's more, the hitting bays will incorporate state-of-the-art video technology and equipment to give players and coaches instant feedback. These hitting bays can accommodate up to six players at once (three per bay).

Without question, when construction is completed in the fall of 2006, it will be one of the nation's finest college golf facilities and give both the Notre Dame men's and women's golf teams every opportunity to continue competing for national championships on a regular basis.
