When Wake Forest's new on-campus golf facility opens for player use next month, there will be a familiar name on the sign out front. School athletic director Ron Wellman announced yesterday that the new learning center will be named in honor of current women's coach Dianne Dailey.

The Dianne Dailey Learning Center will be a focal point of the newly redesigned Wake Forest Golf Complex. Among its features will be a heated hitting bay along with a state-of-the-art V1 filming system and the newest TrackMan technology. It will also house an indoor putting room with the latest TOMI video system.

A formal dedication of the building will happen May 1.

Over the last 22 years, Dailey has guided the Deacons to three ACC titles, including last year's triumph, and 12 NCAA Championship appearances. She has coached 10 All-Americans, four ACC individual champions, been named ACC coach of the year three times and been inducted in the National Golf Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
