Located in the heart of campus, McCool Hall is home to the College of Business and the PGA Golf Management Program. Over the years, enrollment in the college has grown to the point of needing additional space and facilities. A $15 million gift to the College of Business made possible a new 50,000 square-foot addition and renovation to the existing building. The project was completed in August 2007.
The PGA Golf Management Program is located on the 3rd floor in McCool Hall. Our office suite includes a reception area, two offices, and a student work room.
Located on the 1st floor in McCool Hall is the Lyle Hansberger - GolfTEC Learning Center. Inside the learning center is a Full Swing Golf Simulator, GolfTEC g-Swing Motion Analysis Equipment, and a Swing Dynamic Launch monitor.

Mississippi State University Golf Course
The Mississippi State University Golf Course is the host facility for the MSU PGA Golf Management program. The 18-hole, 6,972 yard championship golf course is ranked among the top 30 university owned golf courses in the country according to Golfweek Magazine.
The architectural design of the golf course provides a mix of both playable and challenging golf holes. It is rare to play the MSU Golf Course and not use every club in your bag. Holes #6, #12, and #14 are long par 4s lined with large, mature pine trees and out-of-bounds stakes; they are a true test of patience and courage. The aesthetics of the course come together on the three lakeside holes, #7, #8, and #9. These holes have a 40 acre lake running along the left side and large trees running down the right side. The beautiful landscape of Mississippi farmland can be seen across the lake, creating a sense of serenity while playing these three picturesque yet difficult golf holes.
