History


Windsong Farm was carved out of a pristine, 248 acres of land that formerly was used for the raising of rich harvests and breeding registered Black Angus cattle and Paso Fino horses. Rarely does an architect have an opportunity to work with superior land with the goal being great golf. Since there will not be a residential component associated with Windsong, the routing of the golf holes is only restricted by the boundaries. The rolling terrain provides a palette that may be unmatched for any site in the Midwest. The rolling topography with select trees and wetlands provides the backdrop for the golf course. The elevation change on the property is nearly perfect allowing views and movement within the golf holes, moving in and around a series of hillocks and valleys.

In order to produce the finest results, it is vital that the best people be involved in the project of designing the course at Windsong Farm. The firm of Fought-Lehman Golf Course Architecture was selected.
