Renovations were a long time coming at the Indiana Country Club, and they have taken place in time for a particularly interesting summer of golf, with a couple events of note coming to town.

The club gave its building a complete overhaul.

“The last time they’d really done anything other than replace the carpet was back in the early ’90s, so it was a welcome change,” club pro Dan Braun said. “It’s beautiful. It looks great. The whole club just looks completely different.”

“The interior decorating is done in an updated, timeless style,” Braun said. “It’s an updated style, but all the furniture and carpeting is timeless. It won’t go out of style.”

For the first time since 1995, the country club will serve as the host for the West Penn Open, one of the oldest tournaments in the Pittsburgh area, on July 7 and 8.

The club will also hold a Pennsylvania State Amateur qualifier on June 25.

“The championship proper is being played at Oakmont, so it will be a very popular event,” Braun said. “There are several qualifiers for that event throughout the state, but being so close to Oakmont, with the championship being on the western side of the state, our qualifiers are generally pretty well attended. I’m expecting that ours will be.”
