Gilmour’s new varsity golf coach, Bob Lewis, and his assistant, son Tristan Lewis, have been hard at work already. Committed to taking the program to the next level, they sought out donors in the golf community, some with ties to Gilmour, and raised $62,500 for a new simulator and to renovate the existing putting green on campus!
The S405 with integrated swing simulator is top-of-the-line and is what many pros on the tour have in their homes. It will allow players to work on their games year-round while playing 20 courses from around the world. The simulator will be housed in the Wellness Room located on the second floor of the Athletic Center and will be delivered in mid-June.
The putting green is being refurbished complete with a brand new bunker. This will allow players to work on their games right here on campus. Coach Lewis is a big believer in the importance of the short game and wants his players to be able to practice whenever they can. The new putting green and bunker should be completed in the next six weeks.
