National 9 Golf Club Changes Name To Prairie Club
As the facility renovates to include paddle tennis courts, the Glenview Park Board approved to change the destination's name.
The Glenview Park Board has agreed to rename the National 9 Golf Club to Glenview Prairie Club to reflect the facility's upcoming paddle tennis courts that are currently under construction, according to a park district press release.
“As we expand our customer base to include both golf and platform tennis enthusiasts, it made sense to rename National 9 Golf Club," Cheryl Doem, Superintendent of Special Facilities at Glenview Park District, said in the release. "We felt that Glenview Prairie Club reached both audiences in the community and is a solid foundation for us to build on."
The Prairie Club name was picked from six proposed titles that were discussed by a focus group of National 9 members, based on criteria such as initial reactions to the name, ability to differentiate the facility and ability to communicate a specific image for the facility.
The 2,600 square foot golf and paddle tennis clubhouse complex being built at 2800 W. Lake Ave., is expected to be done in April. The new Prairie Club will include a small pro shop, food and beverage service, an outdoor patio overlooking the ninth hole of the golf course and four ground level paddle tennis courts with elevated indoor viewing of the courts.
