The South Carolina golf teams consistently rank among the nation’s best. Both the men’s and women’s programs are regulars among the NCAA Tournament field, and both teams reached match play of the NCAA Championships in the spring of 2016. The Golf Practice Facility provides the student-athletes something the programs’ have sorely lacked in years past: an on-campus practice facility.

“Having something on campus is pretty much a necessity right now to compete at a high level in our sport,” said South Carolina men’s golf coach Bill McDonald. “A lot of the schools that we are competing against have on-campus practice facilities or golf courses. When high level players come in here to look at what we have, it’s not an apples-to-apples comparison. This is a heck of a start to level that playing field. It’s needed to compete.
