Greg Thompson‚ owner of River Glen Country Club‚ says the aesthetics‚ as well as how nicely River Glen is maintained‚ help set his course apart. “My favorite nine is up front‚” he says‚ referring to the wide‚ shaded fairways that run alongside the White River. Built in 1990‚ River Glen was designed by golf course architect Gary Kern‚ whose motto is “contemporary design in the classic style‚” which also aptly describes River Glen.
