Donors, District Dedicate Merrill ‘Swede’ Carlson Westside Golf Training Center

Westside High School leaders, donors and students officially dedicated the new Merrill ‘Swede’ Carlson Westside Golf Training Center on Monday, February 15. This first of its kind venue for a public high school in the United States offers 1,800 feet of dedicated golf space, including a Foresight Sports golf simulator, Southwest Greens putting and chipping surfaces, U.S. Kids Golf clubs and equipment, and various tributes to the history of golf in Omaha and at Westside High School.


Paid for entirely by donors (no taxpayer dollars or school funds), the Swede Center honors Omaha’s Merrill Carlson, an avid Field Club member who dreamed of sharing his love of golf with others. The Swede Center will be the indoor training headquarters for Westside Boys and Girls Golf Teams, but will also be made available at times for Westside students and staff at no charge to them. Golf clubs are already being organized throughout the district; a dozen Westgate students were among the first to try out the new Swede Center earlier this month!
