Generous landing areas welcome tee shots, but a fairway wood is often a good choice because the layout encourages location over length. Prairie View is an approach shot golf course with a number of ingenious pin positions on every green dictating the route of play. Some 90 sand bunkers dot the course, defining landing areas and hiding pins. And while the site is bounded on three sides by the river, water comes into play only on four holes. At a bit over seven thousand yards from the back tees (par 72) the course and slope ratings play at 74.5 and 138, respectively. Four tees strategically located on each hole allow the golfer a variety of options and playability.
Cohoat and O’Neal Management Corp. know full well the golf course is a gem, but also realize how important it is to provide the customer with a tremendous experience. Our slogan…”Your Country Club for the day” means your experience begins from the moment you drop your bag off, right through the 19th hole. Our staff will ensure you receive world class service and an experience you will never forget.
Every feature of the elegant 15,000-square foot clubhouse, designed to reflect the 1830’s style of Conner Prairie, whispers “class,” from the sturdy oak lockers to the high ceilings of Big Lug on The Prairie.
Under the guidance of our Director of Grounds, Randy Adcock and Cohoat and O’Neal Management Corp, course conditioning at Prairie View is always immaculate. Even when the course had been open less than six months, it was deemed suitable as a U.S. Open qualifying site. Prairie View has hosted the 2001 Indiana State Amateur, the 2008 & 2018 Indiana State Open, Indiana State Amateur in 2012, the MAC Conference Championship in 2014 and Indiana PGA Professionals Championship in 2014 & 2019. Giving back to the game of golf is extremely important to our COO, Doc O’Neal, and that was made evident when Doc & the IHSAA agreed to make Prairie View the host site for the IHSAA Boys and Girls State Championship starting in the fall of 2014, and our partnership with the IHSAA will continue through 2030.
Prairie View Golf Club Founder: Jim Ackerman, Brian Nicholoff and family. We thank them for their passion and love of the game!
