At the University of Illinois’ Demirjian Indoor and Lauritsen/Wohlers Outdoor training facilities, players can work on any aspect of their game, any time they want.
Indoor Features: The 16,000 square foot Demirjian Indoor facility opened in 2008 and features a team lounge, Hall of Champions, club repair room, locker rooms and coaches offices, six hitting bays for year-round practice and an impressive short game area. According to men’s coach Mike Small, players can hit anything from 40-yard pitches and four-yard chips to putts ranging from 3-80 feet. Don’t forget about the kitchen, aka, “Illini Fuel Station.”
