Dorough Field House/Pinholster Court

DESCRIPTION: Dorough Field House is home to both men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball at Oglethorpe University. The facility is named after R.E. Dorough, who was an Oglethorpe trustee for many years. The structure was completed and ready for use in 1960. The field house had major changes take place in 1979 when renovations were made. The facility’s court is known as Pinholster Court and is named in honor of legendary coach Garland Pinholster, who led the Stormy Petrel men’s basketball team to the semifinals of the 1963 national tournament. The gym has recently played host to a first/second round pod in the 2009 NCAA Division III women’s national tournament, as well as the 2009 SCAC Volleyball Championship.
