Prairie View Team,
I just wanted to thank the Prairie View Golf Staff for a great job hosting The Spring Preview last weekend. It is a great opportunity for our High School kids to play such a first class facility. The golf course and staff were top notch. The Zionsville coaches and parents appreciate the opportunity and hospitality.

Prairie View Team,
The evening was perfect. Everyone enjoyed the venue and the room/table setting. The food was excellent! I heard nothing but good remarks. This was a step above what we have traditionally done for this party, and I think we have set the bar for future Holiday parties. I wouldn’t be surprised if the club would want to hold the event here next year.
You personally were most helpful and accommodating. I am very appreciative for everything you did to make the Party such a success.
And of course, I can’t say enough good things about my good friend, Keltie.
All in all, it was a wonderful evening!
Bruce Watson, Central Indiana Chapter of the Austin-Healey Club of America
Thank you so much for the work that you, your staff, the IGA, the IHSAA, and the many other volunteers put in to run another outstanding high school state championship for our Indiana junior golfers.
I coached high school golf for 29 seasons. I had the great fortune to coach in the state finals nine times at two different courses. It was always a thrill to be playing on the last day of the season. At the same time, I wish I could have coached at Prairie View before I retired from coaching and transitioned into officiating.
The course is outstanding. The preparation and attention to detail by all involved have moved the IHSAA state finals from a season ending golf tournament to an event honors the weeks, months, and years of work these athletes have put in to achieve this level.
Frank Wintin, USGA Junior Championship Committee
I just wanted to take a moment and thank you and your tremendous staff for all your efforts above and beyond to host the Indiana High School Athletic Association’s Golf State Finals.
The entire Prairie View staff is amazing. The attention to detail, professionalism and hospitality afforded the participants, coaches and fans is impressive to say the least. I firmly believe your passion, energy and commitment has helped to make the golf state finals truly a premier event.
Your team has helped to create a wonderful opportunity for student-athletes to excel and create positive memories that each will treasure for lifetime. Prairie View GC is a great partner who shares the same collective vision as the IHSAA with regards to education-based competition. Whether it’s the ability to deal with success or persevere through great adversity, the critical lessons learned will help to shape and mold a student-athlete’s character.
On behalf of the Indiana High School Athletic Association, we are honored to call Prairie View Golf Club our home for the IHSAA Golf State Finals!

Prairie View Team,
Thank you to Doc O’Neal, Patrick Dodson and the entire Prairie View Golf Club staff for hosting the IHSAA Boys and Girls Golf State Finals. The Prairie View staff did another an outstanding job hosting the 2016 IHSAA Girls Golf State Finals. The effort and attention to detail you all put in to hosting the premier event of the Indiana high school golf season makes all the coaches, players and spectators feel very welcome and excited to play for the State Championship at the always challenging Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designed golf course. I know my players feel special and begin to fully realize the great accomplishment of making the State Finals the moment they step off the bus at Prairie View. You all put the needs and interests of the players first as you prepare for and host the tournament. Thank you again and outstanding job!
