TRAIN IN THE MOST INTEGRATED GOLF CENTER IN THE COUNTRY
-The Newly Renovated Gleacher Golf Center at Northwestern-
Nearly 20 years after changing the landscape of Northwestern University Golf with the vision and generosity for the first comprehensive indoor facility in the nation, University Trustee Eric J. Gleacher ’62 and Paula Gleacher committed $5.7 million to Northwestern Athletics & Recreation for the renovation of the Gleacher Golf Center. The complete transformation of the space will make it one of the finest developmental facilities in the country.
Here’s whats new:
- Indoor short-game and putting area expanded to 5,400 square feet, with raised ceilings and a nearly 3,000-square-foot green
- A state-of-the-art training area with three bays that will feature Swing Catalyst Force Plates and a TrackMan Golf simulator, as well as a dedicated video instruction bay
- A 19′ x 8′ digitally adjustable putting platform that includes a 3D-modeled green that can be tilted at any angle and an overhead projector that utilizes augmented reality to display putting paths and drills
- A nearly 1,000-square-foot sports performance hub
The Wildcat Golf Academy is thankful for its partnership with Northwestern University and its golf program. Our WGA members will have the unique opportunity to train in this state of the art facility beginning in November 2019.
