River Greens Golf Course now features guest house

| August 6, 2013

WEST LAFAYETTE – When Lynn Russell found out that large groups of golfers at River Greens were having trouble finding lodging for their parties she decided to take action.

“This house came up for sale and I thought it would make a nice addition to the golf course,” said Russell, who owns the course with her brother Doug Davis.

The Guest House at River Greens has six bedrooms and can sleep 16 people.

“It’s great for groups that have couples and singles,” Russell said. “It’s also big enough for groups because it has lots of space.”

The house also has three full baths, a dining room and living room and a fully equipped kitchen that comes with coffee and tea. All the rooms also are decorated in neutral colors that are appealing to both males and females.

“I wanted it to have a comfy atmosphere that would make people want to come and relax,” Russell said.

There also is a screened in porch and patio that overlooks the golf course and the pond. The porch also has plenty of shade and there are tables that can be set up for outdoor dining.

“We have a grill out there and we are hoping to add a working hot tub,” Russell said. “Sitting out here in the evening and looking at the course is just lovely.”

Another great feature about the house is that you don’t have to be golfing at the course in order to rent it. The house also will be available even when the course is closed.

“We’ve had weddings on the course before and we are thinking about doing packages with the house for that or maybe even corporate meetings,” Russell said. “We also have a restaurant and a banquet hall on the course that people can use for their events.”

She also thinks the house would be a great option for hunters or groups of family and friends to get together.

“We are right here close to Amish Country and Roscoe Village for trips,” Russell said. “There are just so many reasons for people to use this house because it has so many rooms.”

People have been staying in the house since May and Russell has heard nothing but positive comments.

“Two groups that were here in May loved it so much that they booked it for next year,” she said. “We are getting a nice response and the word is getting out. I think it helps that we have it on the website for the golf course.”

Renting the house is $50 a night per person and there is a two night minimum for weekends and a minimum of four people per night.

“September is almost completely booked and we have a little bit left in August,” Russell said.
