Set on Finkbine Golf Course in Iowa City, the golf training facility for the University of Iowa men’s and women’s teams provide indoor putting and chipping greens along with heated driving bays that are equipped with state-of-art digital swing analysis. Sustainable features include natural ventilation and energy efficient VRF systems reducing the energy need to heat the space. Because the team practices outside a majority of the year, no air conditioning is provided in the practice areas, which also reduces the energy need.
