Ole Miss Golf Course

The men’s and women’s golf teams are fortunate to have state-of-the-art practice facilities adjacent to the Ole Miss Golf Club, located just one mile north of campus.

The most recent addition to both programs is the Herrington Golf Center, which opened in 2012.  The indoor-outdoor hitting facility allows players the opportunity to work on their games regardless of weather conditions.   Funding for the 3,600-square-foot indoor-outdoor practice facility was provided by a gift from the Clay and Elinor Herrington Charitable Remainder Trust.  

The facility includes two hitting bays with video capabilities to help the players and coaches analyze swings.

“It is a dream come true to have this new facility,” said men’s golf head coach Ernest Ross.  “The Herrington Golf Center will certainly help our players with their swing technique, and provides a place for excellent practice in any type weather.”

“It will allow us to train with a ‘perfect practice station’ as I like to call it,” said women’s golf head coach Michele Drinkard.  “We have set up our V1 computerized video system to instantly play back a swing just made, so our players can have instant feedback on improvement.  Visual learning is the quickest way to learn and improving one percent every day is our motto towards winning each and every day.”

The John Whitten and Marianne Thaxton Whitten Golf Complex, completed in the summer of 2002, houses team meeting rooms, locker rooms for both teams, coaches offices, areas for storage and repair of golf equipment as well as an indoor putting area upstairs.

In the fall of 2006, a new driving range opened to be used by both teams exclusively, and in 2009 a new shortgame facility was completed.

Designed by Cary Middlecoff, the Ole Miss Golf Course opened in 1973.  The course underwent a $3.5 million renovation in October of 2008.  Renovation efforts included green complexes rebuilt to USGA specifications, fairways sprigged with 419 Bermuda grass, new cart paths, a fleet of 60 new electric golf carts, a state-of-the-art 900 sprinkler head irrigation system capable of pumping out more than 850,000 gallons of water a night, rebuilt sand bunkers and the addition of back tees on several holes, pushing the course to more than 7,000 yards in length. Also, the driving range doubled in size. Watermark Golf LLC/Nathan Crace Design was responsible for the renovation project.

The men’s and women’s golf teams are also fortunate to have privileges at the picturesque Country Club of Oxford, which opened in the summer of 2006.  Surrounded by stately hardwoods and gentle rolling hills, the par 72, 7,028-yard course was designed by Jim Fazio and features 18 holes.
