Fieldhouse Development Indoor Facility
The K-State Fieldhouse Development Indoor Facility was officially dedicated on October 14, 2007. The programs opened the 1,344 square-foot, all-weather practice facility with a ribbon cutting and open house.
The facility includes three all-weather hitting bays, an indoor putting surface and a hitting bay with cutting-edge video technology. The hitting bays allow for up to six golfers at a time to hit full shots onto the driving range, while the video technology records the swings and provides instant feedback and insight for swing improvements.
The $275,000 project was made possible by generous donations from Zac and Amber Burton and supporters of Chip-In for K-State Golf and will allow K-State golfers to improve their game no matter the season or weather.
“This facility will allow our players the opportunity to develop and refine their games during the entire golf season, not just the winter months,” Norris said.
“The Wildcats now have the chance to feel competitive in the early part of the spring season. I look at the indoor facility as an improvement tool more than a recruiting tool.”
