Scenic Hills Golf and Country Club at the University of West Florida was acquired by UWF BEI in 2012 to provide access to first-class athletic facilities and enhance educational opportunities for UWF students across multiple disciplines. It serves as a lab for UWF hospitality and management students to learn about the daily operations and management of a country club, restaurant and golf course.

The UWF golf teams are able to take advantage of the 6,730-yard, 18-hole championship course that features a Jerry Pate design. The course also features a 12,550-square-foot clubhouse that was constructed in 2008, as well as ancillary support facilities. As part of the public/private partnership, 20 percent of the annual net profits will be allocated toward faculty development, enhancing the mission of UWF. Scenic Hills Country Club is located just off Nine Mile Road at 8891 Burning Tree Road.

UWF theatre students to perform in Ireland this summer

Exploring Cultures from around the world

This summer, the emerald coast will meet the emerald isle as ten theatre students from the University of West Florida travel to Ireland to participate in the Carlow Arts Festival and collaborate with Carlow Little Theatre as part of the University's program, "The Irish Experience."

From May 28 through June 22, the students will present a production of two John McClure One-Acts, Laundry & Bourbon and Lone Star, in the George Bernard Shaw Theatre in Carlow, Ireland. Students will also participate in the Borris House Festival of Writing & Ideas Festival and The History of Ireland Festival.

“This trip is the chance of a lifetime,” said UWF sophomore Hope Golds. “Not only has it been a dream of mine to act, but another is to travel to Ireland and learn the culture. Coming from a small community and a small family, I was never afforded the chance to travel and grow in my art until this opportunity through the UWF Theatre program. I am so thankful and excited to represent this country, Pensacola and the University of West Florida.”

During the trip, the students will also engage in various workshops. The featured workshop will provide the opportunity for the students to work with actor and director Paddy Behan, former President of Carlow Little Theatre, in preparation for the Irish play Beauty Queen of Leenane by Martin McDonagh. The group will have the opportunity to view the sights and sounds of the play first-hand, discuss the themes of the show with the people and see into the world from their perspective.

This September, Behan will travel to UWF to direct the play at the UWF Center for Fine & Performing Arts.

Howard Reddy, a professor in the UWF Theatre and Music Departments and an Irish native, serves as the program coordinator. Reddy has provided numerous connections for the group while aligning the department with the Carlow Arts Festival and Carlow Little Theatre.

“I love to share the vision of President Bense, that here at UWF we are ‘in the business of transforming lives’,” Reddy said. “In this inaugural year, The Irish Experience provides a transformational experience for our theatre students, to perform and undertake internships at an international arts festival and to experience the rich and diverse history and culture of Ireland. We will add a new international footprint for UWF, with exciting opportunities to expand the program to include additional departments in the future. Additionally the opportunity to create a strong link between UWF, our region, and my homeland, is very rewarding.”

The Irish Experience is an international student program, which in its inaugural year, is open to students in the UWF Department of Theatre. The program highlights a collaborative partnership with the Carlow Arts Festival in Carlow, Ireland.
