The HBU Athletics department dedicated a new golf practice space in the fall to serve the men’s and women’s golf teams. Coaches, players and University leadership were on hand for the ribbon-cutting. The Lucy McBride Golf Practice Area is located on the north side of campus, and features an artificial turf tee box as well as portable mats.
Steve Moniaci, HBU director of Athletics, said, “We are very pleased and grateful to be able to dedicate the Lucy McBride Golf Practice Area here on our campus. Through the generous blessings of the McBrides, both of our golf programs can now practice their short game right here on our campus instead of traveling— often more than an hour each day— to and from a golf course. The practice in the short game is invaluable to our teams. Furthermore, the time saved allows our golfers more time to study and more time to be part of campus life here at HBU. We are very thankful to the McBrides for this gift.”
