College golf facilities: Wake Forest Demon Deacons and Arnold Palmer Golf Complex

Of course the place where Arnold Palmer played college golf has excellent practice facilities.

The Arnold Palmer Complex opened in 2010, and now features the Haddock House, the Haas Family Range and the Dianne Dailey Golf Learning Center.

The Haddock House, named for former men’s golf coach Jesse Haddock, opened in the spring of 2016. The $4.5 million facility serves as the home for the men’s and women’s golf programs while also showcasing the history and tradition of Wake Forest golf.

The 10,000 square foot Haddock House, situated in the southwest corner of the Arnold Palmer Golf Complex, features coaches’ offices, locker rooms, team meeting areas and a Heritage Room that showcases the history of Wake Forest Golf. The Heritage Room and other adaptable spaces within the building will also be available for use for campus events, gatherings and receptions. Out front is a statue of Palmer himself.

The complex features more than 17 acres of 419 Tif Bermuda grass, five chipping and putting greens and 24 practice bunkers. Practice tees are situated around the entire complex to allow players to hit in any direction.

The 3,500 square-foot Dianne Dailey Golf Learning Center, named for long-time women’s golf coach Dianne Dailey, is equipped with the latest, state-of-the-art technology.

The Learning Center has heated hitting bays, which allow up to five people to hit simultaneously, and includes one bay that is equipped with a state-of-the-art V1 filming system and the newest TrackMan technology. The Learning Center also includes an indoor putting room that utilizes the Tomi video system, as well as a club repair and a club storage room.
