Daily fee golf course is ranked No. 1 in the state of Indiana
CARMEL, Ind., Jan. 5, 2010 – The owners of Prairie View Golf Club, an 18-hole championship golf course in Carmel, Ind., announced today the selection of KemperSports™ to manage all golf course, golf academy and clubhouse operations. The Robert Trent Jones Jr. design, which is located just 20 miles northeast of Indianapolis, is KemperSports’ first property in the state. The Northbrook, Ill.-based premier golf course management company now oversees more than 90 golf courses in 29 states and Puerto Rico.
“KemperSports has a national reputation for providing outstanding management services to some of the top courses in the country,” said golf course owner Jim Ackerman. “We believe that partnering with KemperSports will help further cement Prairie View’s reputation as the pre-eminent daily fee course in the state of Indiana.”
Since being built more than 10 years ago, Prairie View Golf Club has been considered one of the finest golf courses in the state and has received numerous accolades including being named the No. 1 daily fee golf course in Indiana by Golfweek and the No. 6 golf course (including private clubs) in the state by Golf Digest.
Prairie View also boasts one of the most respected golf training academies in the Midwest. Its 20-point video analysis system allows for the instructional staff to develop a comprehensive program designed for players of every skill level.
“Prairie View Golf Club is a first-class facility featuring one of the best public golf courses in the state,” said KemperSports CEO Steve Skinner. “We are excited about this opportunity to extend the golf course’s legacy of providing an exceptional golf experience.”
When creating Prairie View Golf Club in 1997, renowned architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. blended 18 holes of traditional golf design into the natural beauty of the landscape created by the rolling prairie and towering oaks and sycamores that characterize the site on the banks of the White River. The property is enhanced by a clear running stream that meanders through four holes, natural wetlands and five serene lakes placed strategically throughout the course.
