At Oakland University's Golf and Learning Center, you will find a world-class practice facility with separate areas for full swing, short game and bunker play. It starts with a spacious driving range with over 30,000 square feet of bent grass hitting area and 28 top of the line hitting mats. Separate teaching tees provide a truly private instruction. Well-defined targets and landing areas help simulate course conditions.
The five-acre short game area includes three greens, five bunkers and multiple turf conditions for working on every aspect of your chipping, pitching and bunker game. The putting green is maintained with the same consistent speeds of the actual golf course greens which allows the opportunity to work on all facets of your putting in the perfect setting and conditions.
