IGM & Blackthorn Golf Club - Teamwork Leads to Golfweek Honor

Golfweek has published their 2009 Top 50 Municipal Golf Courses Listing, naming IGM maintained golf course, Blackthorn Golf Club.

Golfweek's Best Municipal Courses list features the nation's top 50 government owned golf courses that truly possess the highest standard for public golf. “It is very rewarding to have Blackthorn named in Golfweek Magazine’s 2009 top municipal courses listing,” said IGM’s Executive Vice President, Greg Plotner. “I congratulate all of those who performed at the exceptionally high level required to receive such an accolade. It’s an honor to be recognized in the same category with the top rate golf clubs that also made this year’s list.”

To produce the Golfweek's Best Municipal Courses list, a nationwide team of more than 475 evaluators rated the layouts on the basis of 10 criteria - including routing, conditioning, variety and memorability of holes.
