PETER AND JAN JACOBSEN OREGON GOLF TEACHING FACILITY: "THE JAKE"
The University of Oregon athletic department, in partnership with Emerald Valley Golf Club, the University of Oregon Foundation and O&S Contractors, is excited to announce plans for a 6,000-square-foot, indoor/outdoor teaching facility at Emerald Valley Golf Club.
The new Peter and Jan Jacobsen Teaching Facility, nicknamed “The Jake,” will serve as a state-of-the-art practice, instruction and teaching facility that allows Oregon men’s and women’s golfers use of the latest in golf technology and resources in a weather-protected environment. The facility will include three oversized driving range bays with integrated TrackMan technology, an indoor putting studio and covered outdoor heated driving range.
In addition to the practice features of the teaching facility, the building will also provide a “clubhouse” atmosphere in which the men and women of Oregon Golf are able to study, build camaraderie and host prospective recruits. A covered outdoor Fireplace provides the perfect setting to enjoy the spoils of fall sunsets and crisp spring mornings in Oregon.
Construction of the facility will be privately funded through gifts to the Oregon Golf program and the University of Oregon Foundation. Oregon Athletics aims to raise $3 million in support of construction and ongoing operation/maintenance of the facility.
The facility is in the closing stages of planning with plans to break ground midway through 2022.
