Built in 1907 by a group of businessmen, and named after Miami Native American Chief Meshingomesia, Meshingomesia Golf & Social Club was the third golf course in Indiana, and the grand opening marked one of the biggest events in Marion history.
This full service facility is focused on providing an exceptional private club experience for every member of your family. The lovely two story mission-style clubhouse features a first class restaurant and full service bar. Major renovations in 2011 added dark wood accents to the majestic interior. Remodeling of the dining rooms, lounge and kitchen areas significantly increased all aspects of member comfort, appeal, service, and satisfaction. In addition, the clubhouse offers seven private rooms that may accommodate groups from five to two hundred. For large banquets or events, the entire clubhouse is available.
Our dedicated staff has made Meshingomesia the course to play and the Private Club to hold membership. A qualified Class A PGA professional is available throughout the year and lessons in all aspects of the game are available on an individual or group basis.
Meshingomesia Golf & Social Club is also home to one Indiana’s most famous golfing families, the Gallaghers, national golfing family of the year 1995. Jim Gallagher, Sr., is the patriarch of the family and Golfing Ambassador of MCC. Jim was the Head Golfing Professional here from 1965 - 1999. His son’s Jim Jr., Jeff and daughter Jackie, have all played and won on the professional tours; and all come back on an annual basis for the “Skins Game”.
In 1919, the club chose to change the name from the "Marion Country Club" to the Meshingomesia Country Club, in honor of the Miami Native American Chief Meshingomesia. Meshingomesia lived in nearby areas, and brought his village to Marion a couple times a year in order to trade with residents. This Miami Indian chief was very well respected due to repetitive acts of trust and kindness of his tribe. He passed away on Dec. 16, 1879 at the age of 98, being buried in the cemetery at Indian Village.
