CARMEL, Ind. (AP) — The foundation that owns the suburban Indianapolis estate of the late billionaire Melvin Simon is opening up its golf courses to the public for a limited time.

The Great American Songbook Foundation says the two courses on the 107-acre Asherwood estate in Carmel will open through Nov. 4 as a fundraiser for the group. The Indianapolis Business Journal reports tee times will be available in half-day or full-day packages starting at $1,500 per foursome.

Bren Simon donated the estate she owned with her husband, who was co-founder of shopping mall company Simon Property Group and co-owner of the Indiana Pacers.

The Carmel-based foundation founded by musician Michael Feinstein is dedicated to 20th century American music history. It hopes to open a museum.
