The Mark Olsen Indoor Golf Center, in any weather, will provide head golf coach Tyler Wollberg and Parkside golfers with an incredible training center to develop and sharpen their games in pursuit of conference and NCAA Championships. Coach Wollberg will also be excited to attract and recruit the next generation of Rangers by showing off one of the best practice facilities in the region and within Division-II.

This donor funded project has been turfed, both Foresight Golf Simulators with GCQuad Launch Monitors have been installed, and the putting green is ordered and will be installed in the weeks to come. With these additions, the facility will allow up to 10 athletes to be practicing on the simulators, the putting green, and the hitting bays at one time! This capability has given the program a tremendous advantage and will create a great space in the future to host all the donors and alumni who helped make this vision a reality.

The facility will become a crown jewel for not only the men’s golf program, but for Parkside Athletics, the University, and the community. Parkside looks forward to partnering with the campus and Southeastern Wisconsin communities to make the facility available to additional golfers and users. The Mark Olsen Indoor Golf Center will become an undeniable asset for Parkside Golf, our campus, and our community!

The Mark Olsen Indoor Golf Center will be a pivotal facility not only to train our golfers, but also for recruiting the top golfers in the nation. Now that we have a usable space for the athletes, there are still opportunities for our Golf program supporters to set this facility apart from other facilities. The final $20,000 will add a Players Clubhouse for the student-athletes, branding throughout the facility, a new sound system, and other items will be completed to attract the best of the best!

Thank you!
