About Us:

It was a love of community paired with a lot of hard work that helped Leo Heikkinen's vision for a municipal golf course take flight in the greens east of Prentice.

The Prentice Municipal Golf Course has been serving golfers since the 1950s on a plot of land purchased by Leo Heikkinen.  The earliest course brought players onto the Prentice airport's runway, which was a 2,000-foot grass airstrip.  This meant golfers had to clear the way at the sight of incoming planes.  After seeing the interest in golf, Leo worked hard to develop the rest of the course out of the existing landscape.  The nine hole course that was designed was a 2,500 yard par 34, and it stood that way for over 50 years.  The Prentice Community Clubhouse was added in 1973 thanks to donations from Leo and his wife Norma Heikkinen.  Community members also stepped up in support of the addition, donating money and helping out with fundraising efforts.
