Named 2015 Indiana Golf Course of the Year by IGCOA.

The Clubhouse at Sultan's Run offers a great view of the Signature 18th Hole, Supreme Sultan.

Number 18 is amazingly picturesque! The tee is elevated 80 feet above the fairway and the tee shot must carry a lake and three fairway bunkers. The second shot is slightly uphill and has a beautiful waterfall and lake behind the green. It is very exhilarating to play!

We have a great Food and Beverage department. Our grill is open everyday until the golfers are finished.

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf. Brian had a zero chance for a college golf scholarship, so he worked on the grounds crew at West Bend Country Club to pay for his University of Wisconsin education. In his adult years, his passion for the game collided with his entrepreneurial spirit and in 2004 launched GolfWisconsin.com. In 2007, the idea for a network of local golf directory sites formed and GolfTrips.com was born. Today, the network consists of a site in all 50 states supported by national sites like GolfTrips.com, GolfGuide.com and GolfPackages.com. It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.
On the golf course, Brian is known as a fierce weekend warrior that fluctuates between a 5-9 handicap. With a soft fade, known as "The Weis Slice", and booming 300+ drives, he can blast it out of bounds with the best of them.
