Prairie View Golf Club - An 18-hole Adventure You Won't Soon Forget

Prairie View Golf Club - An 18-hole Adventure You Won't Soon ForgetAs 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.”

From the moment you pull onto Longest Drive, the winding road that leads to Prairie View Golf Club, it’s obvious you are in store for an extraordinary golf experience. You’ll pass by one of the five lakes featured on the course, and then toward the clubhouse, with its 1830’s-era architecture complemented with a white picket fence, prairie grass, wildflowers outside and plush amenities inside. Dedicated employees of Prairie View are in abundance, whether it’s their bag and cart attendants, starters or player services staff, PGA Professional Golf Shop and Golf Academy staff, dining and lounge employees, or the grounds crew, all with one goal in mind: to make your day at Prairie View one to remember. You’ll soon find out why Golfweek magazine regards Prairie View as the best golf course in Indianapolis.

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.

Prairie View“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 View a state-of-the-art facility. Prairie View has been home to a Men’s Club since 1998.

Members are offered the opportunity to compete in 24 weeks of tournaments, which take place every Wednesday from April to October. For pricing and information, please visit
