EXETER University is hoping to build on its students’ sporting prowess with the introduction of a new golf practice range and lacrosse hitting wall.

Exeter are currently national university golfing champions and providing a short game (chipping / putting) practice area on campus will allow the

players to practise their short game every day.

The area proposed for the range is an unused grass banked area and, if granted planning permission, the greens and chipping stations will be of synthetic grass for all weather play.

There will be no new lighting installed as part of the works and only the performance players will be allowed access.

For the university’s lacrosse players to practise their skills a concrete wall is proposed

to the rear of the covered tennis courts.

The free standing structure will be 3.5m high and 10m long – a concrete bock with render.

A row of large trees sits between the proposed wall and the fields beyond so that the wall should not be visible from across the valley.

Again the wall is not for general student use but for the performance players only.
