Indian Lake (Pa.) Golf Club, Arnold Palmer’s first signature course, is up for sale. 

The 18-hole facility, located about 85 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, opened in 1967 with a nine-hole course before adding a second nine in 1995. Indian Lake was the first of more than 250 courses Palmer designed.

Clair Gill, the club’s president, said officials began to consider selling the facility shortly after Palmer’s death last September.

“Until very recently, we were working with local interested parties but unfortunately no offers have come to the table so we are expanding our efforts to secure a buyer for this amazing property with historic ties to golf legend Arnold Palmer,” Gill told the Pittsburgh Business Times. “It is our goal to secure a buyer to keep ‘Arnie’s first golf course’ open and functioning for golfers to enjoy for years to come.”

Palmer began work on the 750-acre resort community course back in 1964 during the height of his playing career. The track was dedicated to the legendary golfer in 2009.
