OSU's Jane & Walt Dennis Golf Center Opens
GBBN, in collaboration with Acock Associates Architects, designed a one-of-a-kind indoor golf facility for the Ohio State University. The facility includes state-of-the-art men's and women's locker rooms and team lounges, a public gallery, and trophy room befitting OSU's Golf tradition and accomplishments. The weight training fitness area, putting lab and outdoor hitting bays provide all needed athlete amenities on site. The short game pavilion is the centerpiece of the facility. The room measures 50 yards long and 25 yards wide with a 45-foot ceiling. It contains a massive chipping green and two putting greens surrounded by undulating terrain and bunkers designed to give players practice opportunities for every shot in the game. "Our team can practice over 50 different types of shots on the greens." said Therese Hession, OSU Women's Golf Coach and recent 2014 Golfweek National Coach of the Year.
