FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Indiana Tech announced they have entered an option-to-purchase agreement for the Donald Ross Golf Course on south Calhoun Street. 

The university is assessing the potential of the property as the new home of the Indiana Tech athletic facilities. 

The plan hasn't been developed yet, but they're looking at the back nine as the site of the softball stadium, and the track and field complex. 

The front nine would remain unchanged, and open to the public. The area would also serve as a practice facility for the university's golf teams. 

Indiana Tech plans to complete the purchase in the first quarter of 2018, and begin construction by next summer, starting with the softball stadium.

Practices and games could begin by the spring of 2019.
