Windsong Farm Golf Club Finds a White Knight
Sunday, 22 January 2012 18:41


The private Windsong Farms Golf Club has found a new life recently.  The Independence, Minnesota course has been rescued by David Meyer.  According to the StarTribune :

David Meyer, founder and CEO of Titan Machinery Inc., a billion-dollar farm and construction equipment dealer based in Fargo, has bought the club from its member-owners. Meyer said he couldn't discuss the terms of the deal, which closed Tuesday.

Meyer said the club in Independence in western Hennepin County will remain an exclusive private club and keep its members, and stay true to its original spirit as a course for golf traditionalists.

The private club intends to cater to a similar clientele so the public isn't going to be playing it anytime soon.

His father developed the public golf course across the street from Windsong, Pioneer Creek Golf Course , which his sisters run.

As for Windsong, Meyer said he knew little about it until his sister called him in December and told him it was in trouble. The traditional nature of Windsong appealed to him, he said.

Meyer said he belongs to a few golf courses in the Fargo area and that two of his sons are serious players. But he's never played the course he just bought.

Meyer expects that the golf club will continue to operate like it has done in the past.
