Course Information

The Donald Ross Course allows golfers to step back in time and experience the game the way it was meant to be played. Built in 1917, this award-winning course designed by renowned architect Donald Ross maintains many elements of its classic design today. Among the trademark Ross features are 80 bunkers with flat bottoms and deep gnarly faces, along with square and rectanglular shaped greens that severely undulate. This par-70 course has been rated the No. 2 public course in Indiana by Golfweek every year since 2011.
Sketched on a napkin and carved into history by Hall of Fame architect Pete Dye, this course hosted the Senior PGA Championship in 2015. Senior PGA champion Colin Montgomerie called it "one of the iconic courses" in America and one that golfers all over the world will want to play. This championship golf course on one of Indiana's highest elevation points has narrow, immaculate fairways and rugged, intense terrain. The Pete Dye course has gained national acclaim for its 40-mile panoramic views of the southern Indiana countryside, three man-made lakes, "volcano" bunkers and a variety of elevation changes.
French Lick, Indiana isn't just for the golfers, it’s for everyone in your family. The Resort is home to two historic hotels (West Baden Springs Hotel & French Lick Springs Hotel) on the National Register of Historic Places, three challenging golf courses, two rejuvenating spas, fine dining and single-level casino and other things for the whole family to enjoy!
