"After much study, Nicklaus Design was able to reroute the golf course to generate 35 acres of land for the university. Only one hole is left from the original routing – the eighteenth – but we were able to use the majority of the old golf corridors. All tees, fairways, rough, bunkers, greens and cart paths are new.
The old Don Veller course sat on about 210 acres, which included two driving ranges, a small short game area for the golf teams and a 7,147-yard par-73 golf course. The new golf course will be 7,800 yards and a par 72, sitting on 174 acres, including the two ranges and a new 12-hole par three course for the golf teams" - Chris Cochran, Senior Designer at Nicklaus Design.
