Vanderbilt’s Golf House is one of the finest facilities in collegiate golf. Home to both the men’s and women’s programs, the Golf House was dedicated in September, 2013 along with the Conner Family Training Center, an adjoining indoor facility with cutting edge teaching technology.
The multi-million dollar complex, built entirely through donations from Vanderbilt alumni and golf friends, offers a comfortable and effective base for Commodore golf with all the amenities necessary to maximize a golfer’s potential. The Golf House sits conveniently on the Conner Family Short Game Facility adjacent to the driving range at the Vanderbilt Legends Club, home of Vanderbilt golf.
The first floor of the Golf House features two country-club style locker rooms with luxurious wood lockers, high-end shower facilities, leather chairs and large flat screen televisions. Across from the player’s first-class home are the coaches’ offices.
Upstairs in the 4,500 square foot facility is a very spacious great room that includes a stone fireplace with flat screen televisions on each side. Leather chairs and sofas, beautiful dark hardwood flooring and ceiling and a kitchenette with granite counters make this a perfect place to relax and fellowship with teammates and coaches. The room also includes the ever-popular ping pong table.
The upstairs also features an executive meeting room with large windows overlooking a bent grass putting green and two mini-verde Bermuda chipping greens. Walls in the complex are brightened by historic golf artifacts, many donated by Vanderbilt golf enthusiasts. PGA star Brandt Snedeker has contributed one of his many trophies and it rests atop a cherry bookcase.
The Vanderbilt Golf House is truly a home away from home for the student-athletes.
