An 18-hole Adventure You Won’t Soon Forget


s the only Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed golf course in the state of Indiana, Carmel’s Prairie View Golf Club is already in elite company. But in addition to its 18-hole championship golf course—set upon 206 acres of rolling prairies and serene wetlands, undisturbed by residential development—Prairie View’s commitment to “constructing” players sound in all aspects of the game solidifies the facility’s standing as one of the most complete and dynamic in the Midwest. Widely recognized as one of the state’s premier daily-fee layouts, Prairie View is a 7,073-yard classic design, characterized by abundant natural beauty. Golfers will be treated to views of towering sycamores and oaks and the sounds of clear running streams and billowing native grasses that transform an afternoon on the course into an almost surreal experience. “Prairie View offers a tremendous balance of beauty blended with fairness,” said Head Golf Professional Ryan Straight. “The golf course is challenging, yet fun for all skill levels. It takes advantage of natural terrain to offer wonderful rolling prairie holes, as well as mature trees, wetlands and subtle elevation changes. Throughout the entire round you will be taken back to a time when covered wagons took families across the plains in search of new and exciting adventures. This wonderful layout is sure to take you on an 18-hole adventure you won’t soon forget.” 6

The superintendent and his dedicated team keep the golf course in pristine condition year-round, while a staff of certified professionals at the Prairie View Golf Training Academy strives to do the same with golfers, even during the depths of winter. Today, maximizing your potential as a player requires a convergence of ability, preparation, fitness, technological savvy and an intimate knowledge of the golf swing. At Prairie View’s renowned Training Academy, instruction is based on an all-encompassing, holistic approach to the game of golf. “The Training Academy offers six heated bays so that you can practice and fine tune your game 12 months a year,” said Straight. “We

have the luxury of having four PGA Golf Professionals on staff to provide the very best instruction, assisted by state-of-the-art, one-on-one teaching software and the TrackMan launch monitor.” TrackMan measures attack angle, along with other variables, to optimize the club fitting process and best match clubs to an individual’s swing. (A properly fitted driver can add as much as 30 yards to your tee shot.) TrackMan also helps the client determine how far they hit each club in their bag, which can lower scores dramatically. “By using these tools we can pinpoint exactly when and where your swing breaks down and how to fix it,” said Straight. “It’s pretty exciting to have a facility like this and qualified professionals to be able to work on every aspect of your golf game. We can improve everything from your equipment to your technique and give you the knowledge and the confidence to unlock your golf swing.” Just one more example of the attention to detail that makes Prairie

Otter Creek Golf Course

RTJ’s great parkland-style 18 is complemented by his son Rees’ links-style nine at Otter Creek.


ince Rees Jones, dubbed the “Open Doctor” for his many makeovers of courses in advance of the U.S. Open, added the nine-hole East Course to complement the 18 holes previously constructed by his father Robert Trent Jones in 1964, public-access golf courses in Indiana have been fighting an uphill battle to keep up with the Joneses. Featuring 27 holes designed by two of the most acclaimed names in the history of golf course architecture, Columbus’ Otter Creek Golf Course has been ranked among the very best daily-fee layouts in the state of Indiana since it opened nearly a half-century ago. The well-manicured landscapes constructed by the father-son team gently intertwine with the natural contours found in this part of Southern Indiana. Utilizing the existing aspects of the land to assure each shot is a natural challenge, the Jones’ have distinguished Otter Creek as a championship golf course unique to all others. Today, golfers can create an 18-hole round by combining two of the three (East, West, North) nine-hole layouts. Even with scads of large, mature trees scattered throughout the property, Otter Creek is relatively wide open and water only comes into play on four of the 27 holes. A beautiful setting and tremendous facilities make Otter Creek a must for your next round or golf outing.

Timbergate Golf Course


nspired by Indiana native and two-time major champion Fuzzy Zoeller, Edinburgh’s Timbergate Golf Course opened in 1999 and 10 years later the layout remains as one of the premier public-access facilities in the state of Indiana. The course was constructed on a sandy and almost treeless site by Clyde Johnston Designs, Inc., creating a links-style feel with a Scottish flair. Timbergate was built to be both challenging to experienced players as well as playable to high handicappers. The 6,965-yard par-72 course features at least five sets of Bent grass tees on every hole. Eleven ponds and several bunkers skirt the Bent grass fairways and greens. Bluegrass and fescue roughs surround every hole giving each its own identity. Timbergate is a public golf course owned and operated by the Town of Edinburgh, Indiana. The course can be easily reached from Interstate 65 about 25 miles south of Indianapolis, exit 80, State Road 252.

Bear Chase Golf Club

Bear Chase Golf Club is one of the best kept secrets in Central Indiana.


eintroduced to the Central Indiana golf scene after a comprehensive renovation project in the spring of 2005, Shelbyville’s new and improved Bear Chase Golf Club is ready to celebrate its 6th full season in operation. The design takes advantage of the natural topography, unfolding over 127 rolling acres with the beautiful Blue River coursing through the heart of the 6,506-yard par-72 layout. Adopting the slogan of “We’ve got it all at Bear Chase, your one-stop golfing and banquet center,” the facility features the 18-hole championship golf course, a brand new golf shop and a deck that overlooks the 18th hole – the perfect spot for a post-round drink or snack. Bear Chase Golf Club has all the amenities necessary to make your next corporate or charity golf outing an unquestioned success. A beautiful layout, fully-stocked golf shop and updated banquet facility and bar make this the place to host your next golf outing or event. Bear Chase is located just a half hour from Indianapolis.
