gallery name:   USM Short Game Facility (at Hattiesburg CC) | Hattiesburg, Mississippi




On the heels of his award-winning work for the University of Mississippi at Ole Miss Golf Club, Nathan was retained by the University of Southern Mississippi to design a short game practice facility for the men's and women's golf teams. 

Originally working closely with Canebrake CC in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, the university was able to secure a parcel of available land at the back of the existing practice range at the club where a little-used small chipping green is currently located.  The design called for the existing green and its bunkers to be demolished and a new green, new bunkers, and a new practice tee to be built further west of the existing green for short game practice to allow for shots up to 100 yards. 

However, the location for the project was moved in early 2010 to Hattiesburg Country Club where a larger parcel of land was available adjacent to the existing practice range and shots from up to 130 yards in two different directions with varying elevations could be possible.  Again working closely with the golf coaches and their staff as well as the staff at Hattiesburg CC, the new location allowed Nathan to design a large (9,000+ square feet) chipping/pitching green with multiple bunkers from multiple elevations and distances as well as a separate 8,000 s.f. putting green.  Watermark has been working on creating 3D images of the project for the golf teams' marketing purposes and construction drawings are complete.  The bid was awarded in 2012 and construction began in the summer of 2013.  The facility is scheduled to open in time for the fall semester.
