Sultan's Run Receives Golfer's Choice Awards in 2023

By Brian Weis

On January 17, 2023, NBC Universal released its Golfers' Choice Awards based on ratings of courses its GolfPass Members played in 2022.

Sultan's Run in Jasper, Indiana followed up the Golfers' Choice recognition it received in January, 2022 by again making the list in 2023, albeit in new categories.

GolfPass Members say Sultan's Run is 23rd in the United States for Staff Friendliness. Sultan's Run Coowner and General Manager Chris Tretter said, "I thank and congratulate our staff and the people of Dubois County for this recognition. This recognition goes beyond Sultan's Run; it includes the hospitality of all of Dubois County when our guests come to visit! I also thank the GolfPass members who identified our service as worthy of this recognition. At Sultan's Run, we pride ourselves in customer experience and we manage our details with this in mind, right down to the staff we add to our team. I am thrilled our attention to these details is visible."

Sultan's Run also received recognition for Off-Course Amenities, ranking 24th nationally. Tretter said, "The Off-Course Amenities recognition touches a soft spot in our hearts. This past Saturday, we dedicated our Banquet & Entertainment Center in the memory of former co-owner Steven J. Braun, who recently passed away. We appreciate the recognition for Off-Course Amenities as we believe our practice facilities, Executive Chef and his staff, well-stocked Pro Shop and covered patio are top notch. We are in the process of remodeling our banquet center befitting of Steve's legacy. Additionally, we are remodeling our front entrance this off-season. In October of 2023, we will add TopGolf Swing Suites as we expand our entertainment, banquet and catering offerings. Lodging and a Pitch & Putt course are included in the master plan in the coming years. In short, there's more to come!"

Now in its 31st year of operation, Sultan's Run is owned by Chris & Dawn Tretter of Ferdinand, IN and Dan & Betsy Brunette of Carmel, IN.
