One of the newest features of the Championship Course at UNM is the recently-opened practice facility, which gives Lobo golfers a chance to work on every aspect of their game. Complete with 40-yard wide fairways, almost 25,000 square feet of greens - undulating and flat - and the ability to simulate every condition, the practice facility rates as one of the nation's biggest and best.

The brainchild of former UNM head coach John Fields, the practice range was subsidized by tremendous support from local boosters, as well as money raised from a 1997 College-Am, featuring former Lobos and current touring pros. The facility, which is also home to a short three-hole course, was designed by the touring pros, and it allows Lobo golfers to practice in the sand, on a low-cut fairway, in 10-inch rough; in essence, any condition which might be experienced during competition.

The practice facility is open only to the members of the UNM men's and women's golf teams and provides the teams the opportunity to strengthen their game. The other major advantage of the practice facility is that it is large enough to accommodate the entire squad.

Built through donations from local home-builder Richard Fuller, the Richard Fuller Indoor Practice Facility also provides Lobo golfers with the opportunity to work on their game during inclement weather, as it serves as an indoor driving range.

The digital equipment includes a video camera which is linked into a computer and tapes a player's swing. Once on the computer, a player can compare his swing against previous tapings. He can also use it to work with teachers from home through video tape or disk exchange. The computer also has a database of video footage and swing breakdowns of 50 touring professionals which are helpful as teaching tools.

The locker room facilities have been upgraded significantly in recent years as well and the Lobos now have a private locker room separate from the rest of the clubhouse. Each player is given his own locker for the season.

With some of the best facilities in collegiate golf, it's no wonder that the Lobos have several alums currently on the PGA tour. Also, the women's team has qualified for 19 straight NCAA postseason appearances, including 2011.


The Patty Howard Golf Complex is the newest addition to the UNM golf facilities, giving both the Lobo men's and women's programs a state-of-the-art office building. The Complex includes a meeting room with video capabilities, as well as offices for both head and assistant coaches of Lobo men's and women's golf.
