Golf Team Practice Facility
In recognition of the importance of the athletic excellence, and in attempt to elevate the program further, the United States Air Force Academy and the United States Air Force Academy Endowment have embarked on a new initiative to build a world-class golf practice range.
The U.S. Air Force Academy established the Eisenhower Center for Space and Defense Studies to introduce cadets to the excitement and challenges of space and to prepare them to lead as they face the space and defense policy challenges ahead.
The Center's goal is to ensure that Air Force Academy graduates understand the critical role that space and cyberspace have in the broader national defense discussion, and that they are able to influence this conversation positively in their leadership roles throughout their careers.
Mr. Peter B. Teets, former Under Secretary of the Air Force and head of the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), is the Distinguished Chairman of the Eisenhower Center and a strong support of its mission. Mr. and Mrs. Teets have generously offered to match your investment in the Eisenhower Center for up to $25,000 per year for the next five years. This will allow the Center to offer improved and unique educational opportunities for cadets in space policy and promote greater integration among existing programs across the Academy.
Please join the USAFA Endowment and Mr. and Mrs. Teets in support of the Eisenhower Center for our cadets at the United State Air Force Academy. More Information
