Golfing at Prairie View Golf Club: A Unique Golfing Experience
Located on 206 acres in Hamilton County, Prairie View Golf Club is the only Robert Trent Jones, Jr. golf course in Indiana. Robert Trent Jones, Jr. blended 18 holes of traditional golf design into the natural beauty created by the rolling prairie, towering oaks and sycamores that characterize our site on the banks of the White River. A clear running stream that meanders through four holes, natural wetlands, and five serene lakes placed strategically throughout the course serve to complete a truly unique playing experience.

From the moment you pull onto Longest Drive, the winding road which leads to Prairie View Golf Club, it is obvious you are not in store for an everyday golf experience. You've arrived at Indiana's best golf course. You'll travel by one of the five lakes featured on the course; and then towards the clubhouse, with our 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.
