Hi Kathleen
Although I am not ready at this point to plan our golf outings for next year, I can assure you Great Indiana Golf will be at the top of the preferred destinations. We were there twice this summer with a group of guys and then again with a mixed couple group. Both groups were an absolute success.

We made the trip 2x this past year and had a great time. We will definitely back…next year and probably twice. Everything is always great and you have been very accommodating. Kendallville is our favorite trip of the year.

I just wanted to thank you for the spectacular trip that you set-up for us. The courses were great, the accommodation were excellent and everyone that we made contact with were pleasant and kind. Everything went smoothly, it was the easiest trip I’ve ever planned. The price for what we received was a bargain. I can’t say enough about how pleased we were. I’m reluctant to tell anyone about our golf trip, I would like to keep it a secret so that the prices would stay the same : ) but that would not be fair to you and your organization. For what it’s worth, you made eight new customers this past weekend and I’m sure that it will multiply into more. Thanks for everything and I look forward to our next visit.

Just wanted to drop you a line and say thanks, we had a wonderful time. I will definitely pass the word about the Best Western, great place…
Thanks again,

My friends and I had a great time this past weekend. Our rooms and breakfast were great. We are already talking about maybe coming back in the fall. People at Glendarin were very accommodating. We were a little behind on the times because of the rain, but they understood and gave us coupons for future rounds. We really got spoiled by the GPS at Glendarin. (It really didn’t improve our games much though) We had talked to the guys in the clubhouse about where we were going for dinner that night, Dave’s Lake Shack, that they decided to go there for lunch. They talked to them about setting up a deal where if you go there to eat and mention that you had played golf at Glendarin, you could get a discount on your meal.
Thanks again,
Bill

​Just wanted to drop you a note and tell you what a wonderful time we had this past weekend. We were lucky enough to find you on the Internet about a year ago and booked our annual golf trip for 20 guys with you over Father’s Day weekend. We had a great time. The courses were excellent and varied enough to make for a very enjoyable weekend. The accommodations at your hotel were very good and your staff made it easy to handle all the paperwork. It’s a pleasure to do business with folks that make it smooth and simple. We returned this past weekend with a smaller group of couples and had the same excellent service as before. It’s obvious from your relationship with the courses that it’s a mutually beneficial deal. We golfers are the ones that benefit from your hard work.
Thanks for everything and book us for next year!
Sincerely,
Terry T.

Thank you for your hospitality! I speak for the whole group when I say: The courses you chose for us were great. Cobblestone, Noble Hawk and Glen Darin exceeded our expectations. The greens were fast and you’d be hard pressed to find a flat spot on any of the courses.
Our rooms were comfortable. The pool was refreshing. The breakfast was good. And the cookies were delicious! The staff did their best to make us feel at home (and we did). We look forward to returning next year.
Sincerely,
Dave S.

Just a note to thank you again for a fabulous 4 days of golf and sunshine. Every course you recommended rivaled our courses in Michigan and I’d me amiss not thank your staff for their service and professionalism. The accommodations were great and your hot buffet breakfast tasty. We definitely will be back!

AWESOME Beautiful – tough – secluded-great greens and fairways – great clubhouse. The guys thought it was great. I am sure some of us will be returning. They enjoyed both courses (Autumn Ridge & Glendarin), but Glendarin HIlls was the most fantastic of the two.
Thanks for your help,

​Thank you for all your hard work to make out golf package better than ever. All the Golf courses we played were great and the people made us feel very welcome. They also spoke very highly of you and for good reason. We look forward to coming back and wonder if you have any fall specials. The chocolate cookies were also the best.

​Just wanted to drop a note as to what a great trip you provided us. The courses were great and the service at the Best Western above and beyond. It looks like everyone enjoyed it so much they are already talking about being back next year.

Thanks so much for all the work you did for setting up our package for our group that came the long weekend in May from London and Strathroy, Ontario.
The golf courses were magnificent and the Staff at the Best Western were very helpful, courteous and friendly.
Hopefully we will all see you next year.

​Thank you for your assistance in setting up our golf package. My college buddies and I have been going on these trips for the past 8 years and this was an excellent experience. The hospitality and friendliness at the Best Western Inn, Cobblestone Golf Course, and Noble Hawk Golf Course was outstanding. The Best Western was clean comfortable and served us an excellent hot breakfast. Cobblestone and Noble Hawk Golf Courses were in excellent condition and enjoyable to play. You can expect us back next year.
Thanks again,
Doug S

​Thank you for scheduling a great weekend of golf! Cobblestone and Noble Hawk are wonderful courses and in great condition. The Best Western is very golfer-friendly and we enjoyed our stay. I’ve experienced your golf package twice now , once with a group of golfers and recently with family. Both times your staff was professional and friendly. Recommending your packages to my fellow golfers is easy as you offer great golf with comfortable accommodations at a value price! Keep doing what you’re doing!

​Thanks for putting together a great weekend for us.
Everything was very smooth and everyone was very nice. I appreciate your efforts. Every course behaved as if they were personally expecting us. In fact, at Cobblestone, my friend accidentally broke half of his 7 iron off into a marsh and they were nice enough to fish it out for him. The rate was fantastic for all you get including a very nice breakfast buffet. We highly recommend Cobblestone, Noble Hawk and Glendarin Hills (GPS) courses. We hope to be back!

Thank you so much for hospitality and warm welcome on our stay. The hotel was wonderful and the golf courses were beyond anything I had expected. We would like to book the same weekend next year. Thanks again. We had a great time.

Just wanted to says thanks for a great 3 days! Everything went smoothly and the courses were excellent with Cobblestone getting the most votes. The group already voted unanimously to return next fall. I am hopeful to have 12 in the group by then.
Have a great 12 months and I will be in touch next August.
Thanks, Mike

Just wanted you to know we had a wonderful time with the golf outing. Every person in the group had nothing but good comments about our hotel and golf arrangements. Thanks for your help, and I will be contacting you about a golf outing next September.
Thanks again, Bob

Kathy and Bridget:

Being old and handicapped you went out of your way to help me. THANK YOU! and thanks to the Best Western…………your facility is first class.

Hi Kimberly,
Just a note to let you know that all the participants of the “29th Annual Glutting Invitational” are looking forward to having the Best Western of Kendallville, IN. host our golf outing for the second year. I can not speak highly enough of the effort put forth by yourself and the staff at the Best Western. All of the staff at the golf courses were very friendly and accommodating as well. I have been organizing the event since its inception and can say, with a great amount of satisfaction, that my group has never been treated better! As you know, I begin to organize my outing in January. I do this so that the outing runs smoothly and with no surprises. On several occasions, there has been “snafus” of one sort or another at other hosting facilities that has caused confusion, delays in registrations, or issues at the golf courses. I had no issues last year during the outing. My hat is off to you, your staff, and the golf courses. If you recall, I booked with you for this year the day after we returned from our outing last summer. There was not one negative comment from the members of my group regarding our experience! Thank you so much for your diligent efforts.
Best Regards,
Jim G
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Northern Indiana Golf…Mike Duff
“Where Golf and Hospitality Meet” is the slogan used to describe the experience one can expect from a two to three day golf adventure in Northern Indiana. Three of us took advantage of this offer and made arrangements with Kimberly Hays, the director of golf, at the Kendallville Best Western Hotel conveniently located in NE Indiana near I-69 and 1-80/90 toll roads. The Best Western is a very good place to stay. It is clean, well kept and its cozy bar offers a lot of good cheer and friendly atmosphere. What you will experience is good service, friendly people and outstanding golf.
I am part of a standing four-some which tries to choose a golf destination somewhere south of Michigan in early April of May to avoid the early spring bad weather. This year we found just the right location. Three hours from Detroit, four hours from Chicago and only a chip shot from Lansing and Grand Rapids. We found this golf package through the Novi Golf Show and would recommend taking the time to check it out. The golf packages can be customized to meet your group’s personal needs. All the packages include a complimentary deluxe breakfast buffet, golf and your choice of six 4-star (Golf Digest) golf courses and lodging. Our package was for two nights and 45 holes of golf with cart, for $159.
The six courses to choose from are Noble Hawk, Cobblestone, Glendarin Hills, Bridgewater, Autumn Ridge and Cherry Hill. Two of the courses, Autumn Ridge and Cherry Hill are located in Fort Wayne about 25 minutes from Kendallville. Glendarin Hills is in Angola. All of these courses are an easy drive from the hotel.
During our stay, we played Noble Hawk and Cobblestone and were scheduled to play 9 holes at Glendarin on our way home on Sunday but weather conditions did not allow us the opportunity. However, we were credited for that cost which is a nice way the management handled this situation.
If Noble Hawk and Cobblestone are any indication of how good the other courses are in this package then you can be assured that your time spent here will be well worth the drive. Rick Hulett and his wife Christine from Noble Hawk made us feel right at home. They were eager to share the special features of this “Scottish” style golf course. The course features gently rolling bent grass fairways, large undulating greens with plenty of sand and water in combination with natural ornamental grasses. The course is in a housing development but the homes do not impinge on the course. There are 5 tees to choose from and the yardage is suited to every level of play. It is a beautifully designed Scottish links course.
We played Cobblestone, a more traditional style course, on Saturday and again were impressed with the design and condition. In 1999, just after Cobblestone opened it was rated by Golf Digest as the 8th best new course that year and “Places to Play” in 2002-2003. Jeff Huffman the Director of Operations was extremely proud of the course and the reviews it has received over the past ten years. It is not an exceptionally long course but the fairways allow for generous layups and the condition of the course was excellent.
As previously mentioned, we did not have a chance to play Glendarin Hills but after talking with Matt Funkhouser, Head Professional, we were able to put together a picture of what this course looked like and how it could be played. We learned that both nines offer a variety of open and tree lined holes. Driving past the tenth and eleventh holes on the way to the club house reminded us of a Scottish links design and Matt pointed out that the course has a nice balance of trees and bunkers and rolling terrain. We realized on our way home that Glendarin was something special and we regretted not having the opportunity to play it. All the more reason to return.
We all agreed that we haven’t seen enough of this golf destination and vowed to plan another trip to NE Indiana.
So, if you are looking for a golf experience that gives you outstanding golf, with excellent lodging at affordable prices within a reasonable driving distance. Then go for it!
To take advantage of this great offer, contact Kim Hays at greatindianagolf@gmail.com* or 260.347.5263.
You will not be disappointed.

Just a quick note to tell you what a great time we had on our recent trip. The weather cooperated nicely and the courses were all outstanding. Our favorite Glendarin Hills. I appreciated the suite room for the 3 of us (and the rollaway bed was actually quite comfortable). Thanks again for your assistance and for the nice hat (the others were definitely jealous).

Last week seven golfers and myself stayed at the Best Western in Kendallville. Our experience with both the hotel and the golf courses was first rate. The personnel at the hotel and the golf courses couldn’t have been more accommodating. Rainelle does a terrific job in booking the courses and suggesting which ones would be most enjoyable. Not only will we be coming back next year, we will recommend this package to several other friends and relatives.
Thanks again,
Joe L

Thank you for making all the arrangements for our golf outing. All four of us totally enjoyed both courses and we all had a great time. We have told several of our friends and maybe in the spring we will do this again, and maybe get to play Cherry Hill and some of your other great courses. Again thanks for everything and we will probably see you next year.
Thanks,
Tony B

I just wanted to send a quick follow up note thanking your again for setting up our recent golf trip. All three of us really appreciate what you set up for us. We all were extremely pleased with the entire trip, from accommodations to the courses to the overall value of the package.
The entire experience truly exceeded our expectations and hopes!
Thanks again!

It was really good to meet you yesterday. Just wanted to let you know everything worked out great. Weather was perfect all 3 days, accommodations were excellent and we enjoyed all 3 courses. If things work out we hope to be back either this Fall or again next Spring. Thanks again for making all the arrangements.
Best Regards,
Rick O

I just wanted to send a thank you for the well organized golf trip you set up. We found the courses great, the accommodations at the Best Western very pleasant, and most of all, the people and staff at the Best Western and the courses we played to be nice and great to talk with. We will definitely be back to play again.
Regards,
Ken M

I want to thank-you for all your help in putting together our golf package
this year. The check-in worked great. The staff was friendly and the golf
courses were in great shape. Best of all, the weather was ideal.
Thanks again for a great job. We will be back next year.

We had a great time!!
The Best Western was top shelf. The golf courses were in great shape and Tim was very helpful. The group was very happy with everything. If you come up with a new version of your golf hat, please send me one as Tim said you were out. He gave me one of his old ones which I appreciated. Sorry I missed you as I wanted to thank you in person.

We would like to thank you for setting up our golf package on father’s day weekend. You are truly a gem and your staff at BEST WESTERN were very hospitable and courteous (esp. Kathy the bartender). We played Cherry Hill, Noble Hawk, Cobblestone and Glendarin hills. All we can say is WOW. The courses were in spectacular shape and we enjoyed playing every one. We were extremely pleased with our package esp. the price. We are hoping to be back in September with more friends. Again, thanks for all your help Rainelle and keep up the great job.
Sincerely, Ali C & Robert H
