GIRARD, Ohio (WKBN) – First-year Youngstown State University engineering students put their skills to the test on Thursday at the Creekside Golf Dome in Girard.

The students were tasked with designing holes to meet certain requirements, such as including a bump or a bend. The project allowed students to be creative and then analyze and critically evaluate their own designs.

YSU first-year Engineering Program Director Kerry Myers said the project gave students real-world experience in a fun environment.

“It applies everything that they’ve learned all semester in the course. They get to work with their teams. They get to be creative. They really enjoy it, and so far, the partnership with Creekside has been wonderful,” she said. “They’ve been so supportive of our activities. They come out and evaluate the students’ projects.”

Creekside’s owner said he looks for courses that are safe, fun, efficient and have a good theme for all ages.
