The University of Utah officially opened the doors to its new indoor practice facility in January 2021. The David S. Layton Golf Academy is a $2.9 million facility located across the street from the university’s Football Center.
The new facility includes a 4,000-square foot putting green that sits on the ground level and features 11 different holes with a variety of slopes and speeds. A Putt View System is installed over the green. Two driving bays with launch monitors are also located on the ground floor.
The second level features plenty of meeting spaces, including a player lounge with a TV, couches and gaming gear. There is also a fully functional kitchen for the team to use along with study tables and coaches offices.
