Sultan’s Run Golf Club in Jasper was recently honored as one of the top 10 golf courses in Central and Southern Indiana by IndianaGolf.Com.

Golf writer Mike May selected the course located on 1490 North Meridian Road in Jasper as one of the best golf courses in the southern part of the state.

The golf course is home to many local competitions, ranging as the host site for IHSAA high school golf sectional tournaments as well as the final round of The Herald’s annual men’s amateur golf tournament. National tournaments it has hosted includes the Tour Qualifiers, Indiana PGA Senior Open, Golfweek Midwest Junior Classic and the Indiana PGA Junior Masters series.

Sultan’s Run is known for its uniquely-named holes (Candledance, Starpina) as well as the picture-perfect backdrop on the final hole as a waterfall surrounds the 18th green.

This isn’t the first large honor Sultan’s Run has received. In 2015, Sultan’s Run was voted as the No. 1 golf course in Indiana by the Indiana Golf Owners Association.

The other golf courses on the top 10 list are The Donald Ross & Pete Dye courses in French Lick, Otter Creek Golf Course in Columbus, Brickyard Crossing Golf Club in Indianapolis, The Fort Golf Course in Indianapolis, Covered Bridge Golf Club in Sellersburg, Champions Pointe Golf Club in Henryville, Legends Golf Club in Franklin and Chariot Run Golf Club in Laconia.
