Green Golf Partners adds Indiana club

Green Golf Partners has signed an agreement to manage Meshingomesia Golf & Social Club in Marion, Indiana. Financial terms of the contract, effective Sept. 1, were not disclosed. 

Dating back to 1902, Meshingomesia is one of the oldest golf courses in Indiana. The 18-hole, par-72 layout has four sets of tees ranging from 5,053 yards to 6,445 yards. The original nine holes were designed by Willie Stith and opened for play in 1906. Bill Diddle later redesigned them in 1927. Diddle and Clarence Lamboley, Meshingomesia's long-time golf professional and course superintendent, began another redesign of the 9-hole course in 1955. An additional 9 holes were added that year, extending it to its full 18-hole layout.

"We are thrilled to begin management of one of the most historic golf courses in Indiana," Matt McIntee said in a news release, CEO and principal of Indianapolis-based Green Golf Partners. "Our goal is to refine an already excellent golf and social club experience for members who travel to Meshingomesia from throughout central Indiana. Meshingomesia's pristine fairways and smooth greens are an inviting oasis for patrons from Muncie, Fort Wayne and Anderson as well as the northern suburbs of Indianapolis and elsewhere in the state." 

Originally located in Marion, Ind., the Marion Country Club was reorganized and incorporated under new leadership in 1919. At that time its name was changed to Meshingomesia Country Club in honor of Meshingomesia, the respected chief of the area's indigenous Native American Miami tribe who died in 1879 at age 98.

Green Golf Partners has been operating courses for 20 years in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin and it’s home state of Indiana. It currently operates 16 facilities for an 18-hole equivalent count of 18 golf courses, both public and private, including Kemper Lakes Golf Club in Kildeer, Ill. and the Belleview Biltmore Golf Club in Belleair, Fla.
