BLACK DIAMOND, Wash - Dawgman.com went out to Washington National Golf Club to check out a unique aspect of Washington’s Golf teams that was unveiled Friday. It’s called ‘The Playground’. The brainchild of Men’s Golf Coach Matt Thurmond, The Playground gives Husky golfers a practice facility that ranks right up there with the finest in the country.
Dawgman.com spoke with Thurmond about ‘The Playground’, who gave us his insight from initial thoughts to the details that make the facility so impressive. We also talked with junior Jonathan Sanders, who had only seen The Playground for about 45 minutes but was already enthusiastically endorsing the facility and how it can help Washington Golf stay competitive with the other top programs nationally.
