Date posted: July 31, 2013
LARAMIE (AP) — The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees has selected a Wyoming firm to build a new, $1.2 million Indoor Golf Practice Facility.
The UW Board of Trustees on Friday voted to award the $850,000 contract to Spiegelberg Lumber and Building Co. of Laramie. There were five bidders for the project at Jacoby Golf Course in Laramie.
Construction is scheduled to begin in August and be completed by the end of November.
The project is completely funded through private donations.
The 3,000-square-foot facility will be used by UW’s intercollegiate golf teams for practice and training. It also will be a revenue-generating facility to augment the golf course’s operations, as memberships for its use will be available to the public.
