The host of the 2015 NCAA Championship, the course was designed in honor of the 1969 Ryder Cup where Jack Nicklaus conceded a putt to Tony Jacklin. That gesture, known as "the concession," rendered the two teams in a tie - the first in Ryder Cup history - and became known as one of the greatest acts of sportsmanship ever. In addition to the Golf Magazine's Top 100 Championship Golf Course, it was ranked by Golf Digest as one of the "75 Best Practice Area in the U.S.", boasting over 23 acres of practice facilities.

TPT Golf manufactures next generation golf shafts with perfect concentricity resulting in long carry, low spin, and minimized shot dispersion. These high-performance carbon tubes require accurate fiber placement and flexibility to modify fiber type (modulus) and orientation, to achieve the range of flex (stiffness), torque and feel that elite athletes need. Thin Ply Technology also eliminates the spine which is inevitable with traditional roll-wrapping and ensures a concentric high-performance tube with equal stiffness in all directions.
