Eberhart-Petro Golf Course

Welcome to Eberhart – Petro Golf Course!

Named after its founders, Bertha and Fred Eberhart (along with their daughters Donna Eberhart Blair and Carol Eberhart Hillier) and Mason Petro, Eberhart-Petro Municipal Golf Course has served the City of Mishawaka and surrounding areas with a fantastic golfing experience for over 90 years. Having first opened in 1929 with nine holes on the south side of the St. Joe River, Eberhart-Petro expanded to 18 holes in 1949 including four river crossings. A well-manicured municipal golf course, it may well be the toughest 6,000 yard, par-70 golf course in the Midwest. Built on only 89 acres, Eberhart-Petro will challenge every level golfer from beginner to the most seasoned player!

Summer Jr. Golf Program

Wednesday mornings, this junior program is a much more detailed and in-depth learning process into the game of golf, for kids wanting to expand their games in all facets of the game. It also covers the relation to life skills and how golf is a reflection and teaching of these life skills. It is a seven-week session, every Wednesday morning in June and July, usually starting at 8:00 am, and lasting about an hour in each session, with a cost of $85.00 per child for the whole summer.

Garbage Open

This is the flagship junior golf tournament that put Eberhart-Petro on the golfing map over 65 years ago. It has been, and will always be, a FREE tournament for the kids, with food and drinks following the event. For generations of golfers in Mishawaka, when they think of Eberhart, they think of the Garbage Open.
