New Owners of Indian Hills Golf Course Predict Big Changes in the Year to Come |
PAXINOS – Indian Hills Golf Club will be getting a makeover and it’s thanks to a new owner.
The 6,600-yard course, established in 1923 and nestled between Stonington and Paxinos, will stretch over a 7,100-yard course, with the addition of new tees and the redirection of two holes, said one of the new owners. .
Josh Grundun, 38, of Carlisle, said he and Scott Hall, 42, of Chambersburg, decided to buy the club after visiting the course to compete in a tournament this summer.
“I was a member here and I had Scott with me as a guest over the summer and one of the members said we should buy the course,” he said. “So we started talking and before we knew it we had made the purchase.”
The final price of the investment has yet to be determined as the two are still working out details with shareholders, but Grundun and Hall officially took control of the property on September 1.
“I always said there were things I would do differently here and now we have the chance to do it,” he said. “We’re excited to make the changes and put things in order. “
The course, located at 1167 Old Reading Road, Paxinos, will receive a brand new fleet of golf carts, add a 300 yard driving range and hire a golf professional and a few new staff.
Currently, the course has 220 members and Grundon has said the membership price will be $ 1,200 for a single golfer in 2022.
“We will come up with different ways to pay the fees,” he said. The course will also offer corporate and family plans.
Indian Hills Golf Club spans 142 acres. Grundon said he plans to walk every foot of the pitch to look for things that can be improved.
“We want to keep investing in this course,” he said. “We decided not to take a salary and to give everything back to keep growing. “
Grundun also works for Srixon-Cleveland Golf as a sales representative and has extensive knowledge of gold course management.
Grundun said the course also plans to offer social memberships, for $ 1.
“We want people to be able to come and enjoy unrelated golf events.
“We are planning to have other events for the public,” he said. “We want to be able to show the restaurant, which will be open soon. “
Golfers Jack Diehl, 54, and John Green, both of Port Trevorton, said they have always loved playing Indian Hills and are excited about the course’s future.
“We would consider joining now,” Diehl said. “Looks like they’re getting ready to get this place back in shape.”
Green accepted. “It’s a great course and worth the trip,” he said.
Grundun said the course will hire more people in the spring to join the 10 employees it already has.
Grundun said the course plans to stay open year round with various winter events and snow tubing on snowy days.
