Pottawattomie was established in 1909 when 125 members purchased the land and broke ground for a new clubhouse and golf links. The original club consisted of 9 Holes designed by famed architect Tom Bendelow, and a trap-shooting blind. The original clubhouse had a living room of 52 feet by 25 feet, small kitchen facilities, private meeting rooms, and quarters upstairs for the overnight lodging of out-of-town members. The two-story structure was brick veneer. At the time, wives of Members took turns preparing meals and beverages. The Club has come a long way since then. In 1965 Bob Simmons, a Professional Golf course engineer, sculpted a new nine holes which is now the front nine of the golf course. Mr. Simmons was a prolific Indiana course designer who architected about 25 courses in the United States and abroad. He also built courses for the well-known architect Dick Wilson.
The current Clubhouse was constructed in 2006 and houses The Golf Shop and cart barn below a beautiful outdoor deck, an eloquent dining room, and a lounge and casual dining area that Members find hard to leave. The Clubhouse boasts a 270 degree view of the golf course. During the winter a portion of the dining room is fitted with a golf simulator where you can improve your golf skills while playing any number of notable golf courses around the country. Take a peek at the photo gallery and the scorecard and you will wonder why you weren’t thinking of Pottawattomie earlier.
