Four months ago, one of the greatest golfers who ever lived passed away. Arnold Palmer, apart from being one of the best golfers of a generation, was involved in many different business ventures in his career. From iced tea to golf courses, the King left his mark on the world of golf.
Palmer designed over three hundred different courses in his life, but the Indian Lake Golf Course holds special significance. It was the first course he designed, and the course closest to his hometown of Latrobe, where Palmer’s ashes were scattered. As a result, the course is also one of the most valuable.
The selling of the course shouldn’t be particularly surprising, as Palmer’s properties all gained value with his death. However, it’s important that the Indian Lake Course does not lose its many ties to Palmer.
The course was dedicated to Palmer in 2009, and as long as that dedication remains, then the King’s legacy will remain. With no true grave to represent his memory, the Indian Lake Golf Course is the best memorial for a man who gave so much to the game of golf.
