Golf Course Information
Martinsville Golf Clubs original 9-hole course was opened in 1925 by Walter A. Kennedy. Mr. Kennedy owned two mineral springs in Martinsville and he wanted a place for his guests to play golf. A farm located just north of Martinsville was the perfect spot. Mr. Kennedy hired Bill Diddle to design and build what is today the back nine.
In 1933 Don and Agnes Carmichael came to run the club for Mr. Kennedy. They did so and eventually became the owners and operators. In 1969 Sam and Sue Carmichael were drawn back to the course after a successful career on the PGA Tour. Sam would eventually become the owner/pro and his brother Ron owner/superintendent. This partnership would last for the next 25 years.
In 1970, Sam and Ron decided to build an additional 9 holes. They hired Bob Simmons to design and build what is today the front 9. With much input and hands-on by Sam and Ron, the front 9 opened in 1972.
Sam and Sue are still involved at the club on a daily basis. You will see Sam doing about anything that has to be done. Sue tends to all of the clubhouse area and has invaluable input on every aspect of the business. Ron, who retired in 2000, still helps when questions arise but he can mainly be found on the golf course.
Although hundreds of trees have been planted and many upgrades have occurred, the course remains virtually unchanged. The courses rolling terrain, classical design and natural beauty make it a favorite destination for golfers all over central Indiana.
