The Essig Golf Management's Mission Statement gets to the heart of what we recognize it takes to generate and maintain a quality and enjoyable golf environment.   

As an amateur and PGA Tour player, PGA Club Professional, golf course owner and rules expert, Don Essig III, PGA National Hall of Fame member, has excelled at the highest of all levels of golf, including officiating at all of the game's major championships plus five Ryder Cups.  After leaving the PGA Tour, he started his club professional career as the PGA Head Golf Professional at a prestigious private club in Indianapolis.  In 1972 he built and operated his own successful daily fee golf course, The Hoosier Links.  When the mayor of Indianapolis asked him to manage three of the cities golf facilities in 1993, Don and his son, also a PGA Member, formed Essig Golf Management (EGM).  This was the beginning of the distinguished company, whose properties continue to succeed even in the most challenging of times by providing an experienced staff which is focused on customer satisfaction, fabulous playing conditions, and financially sound decision making.

Known as an icon in the golf industry for being the consummate gentleman and professional, Don Essig and the Essig name have become a brand, synonymous with these same qualities.   EGM is a family owned and values based company diversified in the complete management of daily fee, private, and municipal facilities, creating extraordinary value for partners, team members, customers and facility owners through integrity and excellence. 

Every Member, Every Guest, Every Time is our mission, at each and every facility.
