WKU Men’s and Women’s Golf will dedicate the new indoor golf facility to the late Phillip Hatchett on Friday, Feb. 21, at 4 p.m.

Russellville’s Phillip Hatchett was a standout on the WKU’s men’s golf team from 1980-82 and went on to coach the squad from 2010-2018. He had starred in golf at RHS, became a touring pro, and taught lessons in Russellville for many years.

Coach Hatchett passed away in a bicycling incident in June 2018 in West Logan. An indoor golf facility was a consistent portion of Hatchett’s dream for the golf programs throughout his time as the head coach.

Phillip’s name will be on the outside of the building, and there’s also a few photos of him on the inside in addition to some more signage bearing his name on the inside.

At the event, Director of Athletics Todd Stewart, head coach Adam Gary, head coach Chan Metts and select student-athletes will make remarks followed by a short ribbon-cutting ceremony.


ThePhillip Hatchett Golf Facility is located on the WKU South Campus, 654 Campbell Lane in Bowling Green.
