They Swing! They Score! New Brenau Athletics Park Construction Moves Closer to Opening Day

Brenau University is officially on the board at Ernest Ledford Grindle Athletics Park.

Contractors pieced together a 25-foot-wide, 15-foot-tall digital scoreboard April 5 at the future home of the Golden Tigers softball team.

About two miles from the Brenau historic campus, the park lies along Jesse Jewell Parkway (U.S. 129 and Georgia Highway 369) in the unincorporated New Holland community adjacent to the Milliken & Company mill. The development of facilities for the park includes a gift from former Coca-Cola Chair and CEO Doug Ivester and his wife, Kay, both of whom grew up in the New Holland mill community.
