University of Michigan –
Cilluffo Family Short Game Complex
Ann Arbor, MI
The process of developing a brand-new short game complex for the University of Michigan Golf Teams was a collaborative effort between Golf Course Architects Chris Wilczynski and Mike Devries, the Cilluffo family, and the University’s Men’s and Women’s golf coaches. Construction of the state-of-the art short game complex began in May 2019 and was completed in October 2019 at the direction of Wilczynski, DeVries and the golf coaches.
Practice Facility Highlights
- Two large greens totaling over 20,000 square feet.
- One green is a concave punchbowl and the other a crowned, convex green. Both greens are also meant to be used for practice putting.
- Three bunkers and subtly undulating fairway and rough areas that will allow the members of the Wolverine men’s and women’s golf teams to work on every aspect of their short game more efficiently.
- Golf team members can also practice uphill, downhill and sidehill pitch and chip shots and bunker shots from varying bunker depths.
