Harry Gallatin SIUE Golf Practice Facility
- Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
Harry Gallatin, a legendary Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) coach and avid supporter of SIUE athletics, had a passion for golf and a vision to advance training opportunities for student-athletes. His vision has been realized with a new SIUE golf practice facility at Sunset Hills Country Club, which is named in his honor.
The 2,200 square foot indoor facility and driving range allows for practice year-round at a location close to the SIUE campus. Open to student-athletes and country club members, the facility includes three indoor hitting bays with doors that open to hit out into the driving range, a golf simulator and an indoor turf putting surface.
The practice facility is scheduled to open by the fall of 2019. Future phases include an outdoor synthetic turf putting surface.
