I have had the pleasure of overseeing the Golf Club of Indiana for over 25 years. My goal is to present the best golf experience in the Indianapolis Area by providing a quality golf course, outstanding facilities and an amazing staff. I am proud to say, we accomplish all three. I am an Indiana University graduate and am married to my beautiful wife Jennifer and have two amazing daughters, Wrigley and Mara. Coming to Golf Club of Indiana every day for me is not considered work but rather a passion to share this great game of golf with so many outstanding individuals. We appreciate the opportunity to earn your business on a daily basis and we hope you come and experience Golf Club of Indiana in the near future.
