Located in Indianapolis and once host to the U.S. Women’s Open and several LPGA Tour events, the Country Club of Indianapolis first opened its doors in 1891 and serves as one of the oldest operating country clubs in the nation. The golf course was merely a two-hole green until 1914 when golf course designer, Tom Bendelow, completed his nine-hole design. Today, the private club boasts an 18-hole Pete Dye redesigned champion course, open for member play year-round. A $1 million renovation is currently underway to enhance the club and the members lifestyle.
Tucked away in the hillside of the Wasatch Mountains, Hidden Valley Country Club features an 18-hole golf course, practice facilities, six tennis courts, a heated pool, and a 44,000 sq.-ft. modern clubhouse. Links Asset Trust is currently completing a modern clubhouse grill area, wine lockers, outdoor and patio firepits.
Pine Island Country Club sits right off a central Charlotte, N.C. Interstate, allowing members easy access to Carolinas’ rolling hills. The Charles M. Mahannah designed golf course features generous landing areas and bent grass greens in a park-like setting. Pine Island offers a French country-style clubhouse that hosts many weddings and events, a. 1,000 sq.-ft. golf pro shop, a saltwater pool and an extensive member events calendar.
