By Reed Parker | Inside INdiana Business
The Kosciusko Economic Development Corp. is pursuing the acquisition of Stonehenge Golf Course in Winona Lake. The course is relaunching this spring under the management of Cindy & Denny Hepler, who also operate Raccoon Run Golf Course.
“I have been involved with this course and a member for many years and understand its importance to what our community offers residents and visitors alike,” said Hepler, “We’re in the early stages of a plan that will see the course and its amenities become a key part of what puts Winona Lake on the map.”
KEDCo is finalizing plans for redevelopment of the building and pool, with additional developments to be announced later.
“Economic developers are described as ‘gap fillers,’ ‘matchmakers,’ and ‘dot connectors,’” said KEDCo CEO Alan Tio, “Relaunch of Stonehenge Golf Course provides a great opportunity for our team to play all three roles as we work to refocus our efforts to include quality of place amenities.”
Kosciusko County is a member of the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership and the Northeast Indiana Regional Development Authority, both of which were involved in the Regional Cities Initiative that saw communities prioritize quality of place amenities across Northeast Indiana.
