CMU Golf Hits Big With New Indoor Facility

Unveiling of the Brown Family Golf Performance Center

The Colorado Mesa University men's and women’s golf teams were surrounded by CMU supporters on April 29 for the unveiling of a new facility at Lincoln Park Golf Course.

Together with the City of Grand Junction, a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrated the opening of the Brown Family Golf Performance Center. The indoor facility is named after former Maverick coach Paul Brown who has dedicated countless hours to elevating golf in the Grand Valley.

“Golf has been a fundamental part of my life since I can remember. It was an honor to coach the Mavericks and it’s an honor to continue to be involved in the program,” said Brown, longtime CMU supporter. “This indoor golf facility will allow these student-athletes to keep improving their game year-round, no matter the conditions.”

More than 20 private donors brought the facility to fruition. Thanks to these donations, Mavericks can hone their skills and master their craft in the winter and rain as well as the heat of the summer.  

“With the support of Paul and many other golf supporters in the Grand Valley, it’s great to see this facility finally finished. Our student-athletes, as well as the youth golfers in the community, will have a place to improve their skills year-round,” said Colorado Mesa University Athletic Director Bryan Rooks.  

It’s been a good year for the golf program. The men’s team finished third at the RMAC Championships and will be competing in the NCAA South Central/West Regional beginning on May 7 in Washington. The Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference released their all-conference women's golf team April 29 and four CMU women were represented on one of the two teams.
