Alabama’s Plan for New Golf Facility Will Blow Your Mind
If you haven't heard about the University of Alabama's plan for building a brand new $27 million golf complex approved by the UA System's Board of Trustees Friday, here are all the details you need to know.
As a part of the University's 'Crimson Standard Initiative,' Alabama has announced that they will be proceeding with phase II of their 10-year, $600 million plan to renovate athletic facilities all over campus.
The resolution the Trustees adopted Friday approves building a new arena for basketball and gymnastics as well as the new $26.8 million golf facility.
The University of Alabama and its facilities have improved tremendously over the past few decades, but nothing compares to the amount of appeal and value that these new sports facilities will bring to the University of Alabama.
According to the proposal presented to the Board, this project would include a massive clubhouse, a practice course and a nine-hole course that can be played in multiple routes. They plan on giving the clubhouse a Georgian Revival look, along with limestone detailing and a brook veneer.
“The proposed project will give the university one of the top golf facilities in the Southeastern Conference and among Division I schools across the nation,” the proposal said.
The clubhouse will be located off Jack Warner Parkway next to Kicker Road in Tuscaloosa.
Phase I of this initiative included the $109.4 million renovation to Bryant-Denny Stadium in 2020 with phase II including the new golf facility and basketball arena.
