WARSAW – In a somewhat sudden move, Stonehenge Country Club has announced it will close later this month and not reopen next spring.
The country club and golf course, located on the southeast side of Warsaw, will close Nov. 17 and not reopen. Club members were emailed Thursday with the announcement.
Stonehenge Golf Club golf professional Griffyn Carpenter announced on his Facebook page, “I can’t even begin to say how bummed I have been today. Unfortunately we found out that Stonehenge Golf Club is closing their doors for good and not re-opening next season. The memories I have been fortunate enough to collect here and the people I have been blessed to meet truly make this place so special. From a junior golfer learning the game with my father and brother, to a high school athlete playing for my dad, then to having the honor of being the head professional for this golf club, I have been very blessed with my time here throughout my life. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I value the friendships I made that will last a life time. This place has made a true impact in my life and I will forever be in debt to you Stonehenge! Thank you for absolutely everything! I will forever miss you!”
Word on the use of the property going forward, both the country club and the golf course, were not immediately announced.
Stonehenge’s golf course has been instrumental and a home in the upbringing of young golfers in the area. The course has been host to both Warsaw Community High School and Grace College golf, and been the host of IHSAA sectional and regional tournaments, the Indiana Open and numerous pro-am tournaments.
