Forrest Creason Head Shot

On February 12, 1982 the Board of Trustees changed the name of the University Golf Course to Forrest Creason Golf Course in honor of Forrest Creason .

Forrest Creason dedicated 37 years of service to the University. He was the University golf coach from 1957-69, and his coaching record was 119-116-7. He was also an associate professor of health and physical education department and an athletic ticket director. He retired from teaching on July 1, 1975.

During the Board of Trustees meeting in which the decision was made to name the golf course for Forrest Creason, Dr. Ferrari said, “this is an excellent way to recognize Mr. Creason’s long service and contributions to the University.”
