The Wittenberg men's and women's golf teams practice and compete in style at multiple locations, both on- and off-campus.

The teams utilize historic Springfield Country Club as the primary practice and competition venue, while also getting winter-time driving range reps at Udders & Putters Driving Range at Young's Jersey Dairy in Yellow Springs. In addition, the Tiger student-athletes have access to expert-level analysis and complete training using the Varsity Golf Practice Rooms in the Kilgore Athletic Corridor, located in Wittenberg's HPER Center.

Between the outdoor options at Springfield Country Club, the weather-resistant facility at Young's, and year-round option of the Golf Practice Rooms, Wittenberg golf is never rained out.

Wittenberg golf student-athletes also have full access to the Bob Rosencrans Fitness Center at the Athletics Hall of Honor, Heinzen Strength Center and HPER Center Natatorium for training activities.

Accessibility: The HPER Center and most features within, including the Varsity Golf Practice Rooms, are fully accessible. For specific questions regarding accessibility of the HPER Center and its constituent facilities, please contact Beth Wendt at 937-327-6458.

Varsity Golf Practice Rooms

The Varsity Golf Practice Rooms are an impressive fixture within the HPER Center, offering advantages not seen at many Division III schools. Wittenberg's indoor golf practice facilities include equipment to practice every stage of the game.

Located within the Kilgore Athletic Corridor in heart of the HPER Center, the Golf Practice Rooms include a state-of-the-art indoor netting system with an artificial, golf-specific surface and hitting mats designed to simulate the feel of a golf course and absorb impact. A putting green, also equipped with golf-specific artificial surface, provides an area to focus on the short game. Tiger student-athletes have the ability to record and play back their strokes on an integrated video system, an especially unique benefit of the Varsity Golf Practice Rooms.

Also within the confines of the rooms are general fitness and training equipment, designed to provide opportunities to focus on tweaking swings and increasing core fitness. In addition, a repair workshop outfitted with top-notch equipment is available to Tiger coaches and student-athletes.

Springfield Country Club

The 18-hole, 72-par golf course at Springfield Country Club was designed by Donald Ross and traverses beautiful rolling hills in a pristine wooded setting. The club started with the opening of its golf course in 1898.

Gentle slopes, old-growth stands of trees, beautifully manicured grounds and a prime location, away from traffic and nestled in a historic, residential neighborhood, make the Springfield Country Club a one-of-a-kind home and a first-class golf experience.

The country club is conveniently located at the intersection of Home Road and North Fountain Boulevard, just one mile from campus, next to the historic and beautiful Northridge residential area.

Springfield Country Club plays hosts to the annual Wittenberg Golf Alumni, Family and Friends outing, as well as all Tiger home golf events. Each year, the men's team hosts the Rosencrans-Maurer Fall Invitational, named for two of the most successful coaches in program history, and the women hold the Pat Clouse Invitational, named for the founding coach of the program.

Udders & Putters Driving Range at Young's Jersey Dairy

Udders & Putters, part of the nationally-known family destination of Young's Jersey Dairy, provides another resource for the Wittenberg golf teams. Since 1994, the driving range at Udders & Putters has featured 40 natural grass tees and 20 artificial grass tees, 10 of which are heated and covered for use during inclement weather. The entire range is lit for nighttime use, and the range is open throughout the year. Young's Jersey Dairy is located in Yellow Springs, just 20 minutes south of Springfield on Route 68.

History

The men's and women's golf teams at Wittenberg have practiced and competed at numerous Springfield-area golf facilities over the years. Snyder Park and Windy Knoll Golf Club both served as home sites for past Tiger events, and Springfield Country Club has hosted the Wittenberg teams in recent years. In addition, the Country Club of the North in Beavercreek and Urbana Country Club have both welcomed the Tigers for practice rounds.

Wittenberg has served as the host institution for two NCAA Division III national championships, both at Reid Park South, first in 1976, just the second Division III championship held, and again in 1981-82.
