Indiana Thompson 

Meet the owner

Indiana Thompson grew up in Chetek, not too far away from the golf course. He played golf for Chetek-Weyerhauser where he set many school records and received all state recognition. With the love of the game on his side, he continued his education at UW-Stout with a degree in Golf Enterprise Management and Business Administration. While he was there, he played golf on the collegiate team for a few seasons and graduated Summa Cum Laude. He was hired on as General Manager of Big Fish Golf Course in Hayward, WI while still in school and proceeded to manage the Pete Dye golf course for 2 seasons before purchasing Pinecrest from the Knutson family in March 2021. He is very thankful for all of the support of his family and friends during the time of purchase and beyond. He has great support from his parents, Mark and Janet Thompson, grandfather Burnett Muermann, and aunts and uncles Joan and Andy Turner along with Teresa and Jason Brekke. He looks forward to building off the success that the Knutson family had and proceeding to make Pinecrest the best golf course in the area to play!
