Jenks HS opens new indoor practice facility

Ribbon cutting was held Thursday evening for a new practice center for the Jenks High School golf teams.

The building houses lockerrooms for the boys and girls golf teams, coaches’ offices, a 2,000-square foot putting and chipping green with slopes built in, three hitting bays, an instruction room outfitted with the latest in launch monitors and swing video and another room with golf simulators on which golfers can test themselves on courses from around the world.

Jenks Director of Golf Bill Roller was one of the driving forces behind the facility, which was funded through a $600,000 bond issue. Orinal plans to build the facility next to the team’s home course at South Lakes were nixed the Federal Aviation Administration which controls access to the nearby Riverside Jones Airport, so the site is just east of Jenks High School and about two miles from the golf course.

The practice facility was designed by GH2 Architects of Tulsa and Manhattan Construction was the primary builder.
