John W. Mooty Golf Facility

The John W. Mooty Golf Facility is the new state-of-the-art training center for the University of Minnesota Golf Team. The facility officially opened its doors in January, 2019. Despite being one of the Big Ten's elite golf programs with an NCAA Championship and several Big Ten titles, Minnesota has not previously had any indoor golf training space, something other programs across the Big Ten and the nation have enjoyed for decades. Knowing this facility was a need to ensure continued success and growth of both programs, the athletics department successfully raised enough private contributions to fully fund the facility's construction.

The new men's and women's facility features heated indoor hitting bays for golfers to practice full swings in all weather conditions, as well as indoor practice greens for putting and chipping. It also includes locker rooms for both teams, offices for the coaching staffs of both teams, a lounge for students to relax, study, and bond as a team, and a Hall of Fame area to celebrate the achievements of both programs.

The new facility is located on the University's St. Paul campus, immediately adjacent to the historic Les Bolstad Golf Course.

    June 25, 2022: This is coming straight from my son (age 8): "Getting to know all my camp friends, learning new grips, learning the different techniques to make my drives go further, and the water balloon fight on Friday. I can't wait to go back next year!"
