Paul Schock - Founder
For Paul Schock, The Prairie Club is a true labor of love. As founder and president of Destination Golf Ventures, LLC, Paul leads the development of remote golf ventures whose designs and settings promote appreciation of the natural world. Paul lives in Sioux Falls with his wife and five children, but is just as likely to be found with them on his Cherry County, Nebraska ranch, or his Brookings County, South Dakota farmland or his longstanding family property in the Black Hills.
During his varied 25-year business career as a commercial banker, CFO, president of his own investment advisor firm, venture capitalist, and director of corporate development, Paul has maintained a keen interest in conservation, borne of his love for the outdoors. Paul is a former member of The South Dakota Nature Conservancy. Add to that the fact that Paul became one of South Dakota’s best-known amateur golf champions, and you know why The Prairie Club is all about the land, and all about the golf.
