The Donald Ross Course
Designed by iconic architect Donald Ross in 1917, “The Hill Course” features 80 of Ross’ trademark bunkers with flat bottoms and deep, gnarly faces and square or rectangular shaped greens that severely undulate. Thirty-five of these bunkers are original to the course that Ross constructed in 1917. The course is a par 70 and plays to 7,000 yards. The course has been rated #2 public in Indiana 2008-2016 by Golf Week and was among the 100 greatest through 2015. The course has hosted LPGA championships and Senior PGA events in the years since. Ross, an expert greenskeeper and club maker, is credited with laying the groundwork for the American golf industry. Ross is one of the few golf course architects to be admitted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. As a testament to his architectural brilliance, Donald Ross course designs account for 11 of Golf Digest’s 100 Greatest Courses in the United States
The Pete Dye Course
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. A robust 8,100 yards from the professional tees punctuate Dye’s signature sting from vista to vista. The Old Links undulates in the glory of its natural terrain, with towering dunes and huge undulating greens..
