Ken Janke Sr. Golf Learning Center Campaign

Thanks to all of the generous donors to the Ken Janke Sr. Golf Learning Center campaign, a year-round opportunity to develop skills and enjoy golf is now available in West Michigan. With four TrackMan golf simulators, three heated indoor hitting bays, and an indoor putting green, the 9,500 square-foot, two-story, $3.5 million facility is a resource for the University’s men’s and women’s golf teams and the home to The Michigan Golf Hall of Fame.

The Michigan Golf Hall of Fame, which the late Ken Janke Sr. founded in 1982, made its permanent home at Ferris in 2013. The collection of plaques, portraits and memorabilia honoring more than 120 MGHOF inductees will be on display in the learning center as well.

Formal ceremonies to commemorate and open the Ken Janke Sr. Golf Learning Center at Ferris' Katke Golf Course are planned for June 2, 2019, prior to the MGHOF Class of 2019 induction ceremony.
