College golf facilities: Findlay Oilers

·2 min read

A good number of NCAA Div. I schools will be jealous of this new Div. II facility in northwest Ohio.

The University of Findlay recently unveiled the Beall Oilers Golf Center, the new $400,000 on-campus home of both the men’s and women’s golf teams. Lead donors John and Pam Beall committed to the project in the winter of 2021 and the rest was funded privately by alumni, friends, family, and other supporters of the programs.

“First and foremost I want to offer a big thank you to all of the donors who made this building possible, with a special thank you to John and Pam (Beall) and Brant Rhoad and family who believed in this project from it’s inception,” said Director of Golf Dominic Guarnieri. “The Beall Oilers Golf Center will be a vital tool in the improvement and preparation of our players during the winter months and on bad weather days. The completion of this project is a dream come true for myself and our players and we are excited to call the Beall Oilers Golf Center home now and for years to come.”

Highlights include a 1,100 square foot putting green, the Brant Rhoad and Family Short Game Area and two hitting bays with Foresight GCQuad launch monitors. The facility also includes a lounge with flat screen TVs, couches and a place for players to study. The school also unveiled a new logo for the golf program, “Swingin’ Derrick.”
