CARMEL, IN – The City of Carmel’s official municipal golf course, Brookshire Golf Club, will celebrate its 50th anniversary this year with a new logo, upgrades to the 18-hole public golf course and new features to the two-year-old Brookshire Clubhouse.

              Established in 1971, the golf course – located east of Keystone Parkway near 116th Street and Gray Road – is marking its 50th anniversary season and the first unofficial round of golf ever played on June 25, 1971. The City purchased this golf course in 2007 in order to preserve it as a public amenity, rather than being replaced by private development.

              “Brookshire is a fixture in Carmel’s history that we plan to preserve and improve now and in the future; a wonderful community asset,” said Mayor Jim Brinard. “We hope our residents and visitors use this 50th anniversary to discover, or re-discover, this beautiful course.”

              With the new logo, Brookshire chose to incorporate the image of its history, with an updated look. The crest of the logo mimics the pillars at the entrance of the Brookshire neighborhood, which is accessible off of Gray Road, just north of 116th Street and along 126th Street, west of Gray Road.

              “The golf course is also continuing to see improvements with new bridges going in and we continue to work on getting paved cart paths all the way around the course,” said Brian Ballard, PGA Director of Golf at Brookshire. “We are also installing two state-of-the-art, indoor golf simulators in our new clubhouse in hopes of offering year-round golf experiences in Carmel.”

Brookshire is also expanding its pro shop by bringing in new merchandise this season, including T-shirts, pullovers, headwear, polos, tumblers, poker chips and other items with the new logo. You can also look for new clothing apparel lines like Nike, Bad Birdie, Levelwear and Black Clover.

Recognizing that we are still not completely past the COVID-19 pandemic, Brookshire will continue with safety procedures and precautions put in place last year.

“Our goal is to provide a safe outdoor environment for people to be able to enjoy golf at Brookshire.  Customers and staff are still wearing masks inside the clubhouse, we continue to fog restrooms and other common areas, as well as disinfecting guest golf carts immediately after they are turned in,” said Ballard.
