On and Off the Course: Prairie View Golf Course is worth the drive!



Phillip’s favorite use of the GPS system though was the ability to order lunch from the eighth tee! When you get past the seventh hole, the GPS system asks if you want to place an order for the turn. If you do, a menu is displayed, you place your order, and it is ready when you stop by the clubhouse at the turn. Phillip highly recommends the hamburgers! Great Lakes Magazine ranked them as the second-best hamburgers in the Midwest, so he’s not the only one who likes them.

I enjoyed having nice wide fairways to aim at, but my favorite part of the course was the greens. They were large and undulating, but rolled very true. They were in great shape, especially for a daily fee facility. You wanted to make sure you landed on the same tier as the pin though, or you had a very long putt!

Daily Greens Fees at Prairie View, including cart, are $90. A “re-run” green fee of $35 would apply if you had time for a second round. Twilight greens fees, which begin at 4 p.m., are $55. Call toll free at 1-88-TO-GO-GOLF to make a tee time.

Another aspect of the Prairie View experience is its’ Golf Training Academy where they combine fitness, instruction, and club fitting to help players maximize their full potential. You can schedule individual or group lessons, hone in on your short game, your woods, your putting, or whatever is needed. They have eight heated bays for winter instruction, along with an indoor putting green and fitness center. Call ahead to make reservations. You could also visit for any one part of the academy. Just call (317) 816-3111 for reservations.

Prairie View hosts many tournaments and special events throughout the summer. Three times a year they hold a “horserace”, where qualifying is held on a Saturday morning. Then at 3:30 p.m. sharp it’s “post time”. All 18 qualifiers, in two-man teams, tee off on from the first tee. Teams are eliminated on each hole until a winner is crowned on the 9th hole. An individual “horserace” will be held on Aug. 16, the fall “horserace” will be sometime in October.
