A decade in, Dismuke hasn’t lost sight of a 17th national championship
“It’s night and day,” Dismuke said. “We had almost zero budget for golf when I showed up.”
In his first year, the former Auburn golfer said, Houston had about $22,000 to spend but have “infinitely more” to spend today.
While Dismuke won’t take credit for it and prefers to refer to himself as a “facilitator” of UH’s success during his tenure. He is responsible for much of the fundraising and leg work that went into the Cougars’ upgrades, namely the Golf Club of Houston being designated its home course.
“We had no facilities when I showed up,” Dismuke said. “We have a world-class facility at Golf Club of Houston now. The whole landscape for the athletics department and the University has vastly improved.”
