The University of Iowa Athletics Department has tentative plans to build a new indoor practice golf facility and practice gymnastic facility.

UI officials discussed building a new indoor practice golf facility on Finkbine Golf course at a Presidential Committee on Athletics meeting Thursday night.

A portion of the facility would be 3,000 square feet and devoted to chipping and putting. Another portion will house two garage doors that would open for the golfers to hit their balls onto the driving range. The facility would run year-round and become the men's and women's locker rooms.

Officials also discussed the need for a new gymnastic practice facility, but no time frame was set. The men's and women's practice facility — the Field House — is going through renovation.
