Rhodes Golf Center
This facility includes a 6,000-square foot putting and chipping green with a Tif-Eagle Bermuda grass surface; an 8,000-square foot tee box; a 1600-square foot elevated tee box with Meyer and Palisades zoysia grass; an auxiliary tee box next to a 4,500-square foot putting green with Mini-Verde Bermuda grass; mini target greens with flags at 50-, 75-, 100-, 150-, 200- and 250-yards; two sand bunkers ( one 1,200-square feet and the other 400-square feet); and a state-of-art programmable irrigation system.
The 3,000-square foot building will include three hitting bays (covered and climate controlled)with complete camera equipment for video and swing analysis; a 600-square foot true putting green; a student lounge for golfers; office space; a kitchenette; and restrooms.
The building connected to this project will temporarily serve as a rehearsal area for the UT Martin band program during the renovation of the Fine Arts Building. Because of the band program's temporary use, the new building will not be fully renovated to its golf practice center function until summer of 2012.
