FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WINONA LAKE, IN (July 02, 2019) – The Kosciusko Economic Development Corporation (KEDCo) today provided an update on a project to relaunch the Stonehenge Golf Club at a special meeting of the Winona Lake Town Council.
“This has been an exciting quality of place project for us to be involved with and a great opportunity to establish our new focus on similar projects throughout Kosciusko County,’” said KEDCo CEO Alan Tio, “Relaunch of Stonehenge Golf Club has brought together a fantastic team of local leaders who have all contributed greatly to the project moving forward.”
KEDCo recently formed the Kosciusko Community Development Corporation (KCDC), a separate not-for-profit entity that can support public-private partnerships like the Stonehenge Golf Club relaunch. The Winona Lake Town Council this evening established a revolving loan fund to support acquisition of the real estate.
“The Town of Winona Lake has identified the area near Stonehenge as a focus of future commercial and residential development,” said Town Manager Craig Allebach, “We realize the importance of preparing for future population growth by offering amenities that add to the quality of life in our community.”
Under the terms of agreements that are being developed, KCDC will enter into a lease agreement with 28FIFTY Management LLC, led by longtime golf professional Denny Hepler, to operate the golf course, and will sell the clubhouse to an entity planning to redevelop the facility as multi-tenant space. Inquiries about leasing space at the clubhouse for restaurant, retail, or other destination amenities should be directed to Tio.
We look forward to continuing the tradition of Stonehenge Golf Club as one of the premier golf courses in the state of Indiana,” said Hepler, “The response so far has been overwhelming and we are on track to meet or exceed our goals for the operation.”
