PAXINOS – Indian Hills Golf Club is undergoing a facelift, thanks to the new ownership.
The 6,600-yard course, which was established in 1923 and sits between Stonington and Paxinos, is being expanded to a 7,100-yard course, with new tees and two-hole diversion, 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 court for a summer tournament.
“I was a member here and had Scott as my guest for 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’d made the purchase.”
The final price of the investment has not yet been determined as the two are still working out the details with shareholders, but Grundun and Hall officially took control of the property on September 1st.
“I’ve always said that there are things that I would do differently here, and now we have the chance,” he said. “We look forward to making the changes and fixing things.”
The course at 1167 Old Reading Road, Paxinos is getting a brand new fleet of golf carts, a 300 yard driving range, and the hiring of a professional golfer and a few new employees.
The course currently has 220 members and Grundon said the membership price will be $ 1,200 for a single golfer in 2022.
“We will offer different ways to pay the fees,” he said. The course also offers corporate and family plans.
The Indian Hills Golf Club extends over 142 acres. Grundon said he plans to scan every foot of the site looking for things that could be improved.
“We want to keep investing in this course,” he said. “We decided not to take a paycheck and give everything back to keep growing.”
Grundun also works as a sales representative for Srixon-Cleveland Golf and has extensive knowledge of gold course management.
Grundun said the course also plans to offer social memberships for $ 1.
“We want people to come and enjoy unrelated golf events.
“We are planning more events for the public,” he said. “We want people to visit the restaurant that is about to open.”
Golfers Jack Diehl, 54, and John Green, both from Port Trevorton, said they always wanted to play on Indian Hills and are excited about the future of the course.
“We would consider joining now,” said Diehl. “It sounds like they’re preparing to get this place back in shape.”
Green agreed. “This is a great course and well worth the drive,” he said.
Grundun said the course will hire more people in the spring to join the 10 employees who are already employed.
Grundun said the course is slated to stay open year-round with various winter events and snow tubing on snowy days.
