TWU plans to enhance golf course


DENTON — Texas Woman’s University will enhance the TWU golf course as part of a two-year revitalizing plan, university officials announced today.

The plan comes as the TWU golf course moves from under the direction of the TWU Facilities Management department to the Fitness and Recreation unit under the TWU Office of Student Life.

“Moving golf course operations to Fitness and Recreation makes sense, because the department already manages many services shared by students and the community including the TWU Fitness and Recreation Center, the outdoor pool and university tennis courts,” said Dr. Richard Nicholas, TWU vice president for student life.

The first phase of the plan includes improving the course grounds, adding new services and possibly offering food and beverages.

TWU also plans to hire a supervisor of golf course marketing and operations, a golf pro and more groundskeeping staff as part of the new plan.

The second phase of the plan calls for continuing improvements implemented in phase one and offering new programming at the golf course such as tournaments and lessons.

TWU also is conducting a survey of current golf course patrons for their input on how to improve the course.

“We recognize that we have the only public golf course in Denton and we want to make playing the course as enjoyable as possible,” Dr. Nicholas said. “We expect these changes to increase revenue as we face rising costs. Our goal is for the golf course to cover its expenses. In addition, we hope to increase participation by students and golfers from the community.”
