Mississippi State University’s golf center adjoins Mossy Oak Golf Club and shares a spectacular practice range along the east side of the property. Conceptualized as “natures golf”, the development is a tribute to minimalist golf within the context of native flora. The buildings of the university’s golf center were inspired by the vernacular agricultural architecture of Northeast Mississippi. Constructed of native cypress and hand-molded brick, the buildings respond to the history and building traditions of the Deep South. Simple and straightforward massing is accentuated by heavy-timber detailing to achieve a design that celebrates craftsmanship. The project scope included site master planning, team clubhouse, 4 new indoor hitting bays, and an indoor putting green. Roger Pryor, AIA served as principal architect for this project which opened for play in 2016.
