McCool Hall Facilities

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 $10 million gift to the College of Business and Industry has 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 with a copy/fax machine.  The PGA Golf Management Office Suite is usually occupied with students either waiting for their next class to start or working on projects.   



Located on the 1st floor in McCool Hall is the Lyle Hansberger - GolfTEC Learning Center.  Inside the learning center is a Full Swing Simulator, GolfTEC SEVA System Motion Analysis Equipment, and a Swing Dynamic Launch monitor.

The Full Swing Simulator allows students to play 56 golf courses from around the world.  Upon completion of their round, students are able to print scorecards and statistical information from their round.  Statistical information includes driving accuracy percentage; average driving distance; average score on par 3, par 4, par 5; greens in regulation percentage; average distance to hole and more.  The simulator also incorporates an extensive practice area in which students can work on their game between class.  Students also conduct competitions throughout the semester in the simulator.  Some of the competitions include golf tournaments, skins games, online tournaments, closest to the hole contests and long drive contests.



The GolfTEC g-Swing System Motion Analysis Equipment is a state of the art system that allows students to compare their golf swing with over 225 tour professionals.  Students are outfitted with motion sensors that register movement during the golf swing.  This data is collected and compared against the average of 150 tour professionals.  Swings can be stored in the system and compared to individual tour players, other PGA Golf Management students or your own swing as you make adjustments.  Additional features of the system include a monitor directly in front of the student for easy viewing and auditory feedback for specific motions during the golf swing.  Combined with the Full Swing Simulator, students are able to see how body positions can change ball flight.


As you can see, the Lyle Hansberger - GolfTEC Learning Center is a state of the art facility in which PGA Golf Management students can see the relationship between golf ball measurements, swing mechanics, and ball flight.  Not only will your game improve, so will your ability to teach the game.
