Sketched on a napkin and carved into history, the challenging 18-hole Pete Dye Course at French Lick has been rated #1 in Indiana 12 consecutive years in GolfWeek’s “Best You Can Play” rankings. Forty-mile panoramic views of the countryside, three man-made lakes and a variety of elevation changes have been shaped into five sets of tees for golfers of every skill level. Play it as short as 5,151 yards or a robust 8,100 yards from the professional tees. Pete may have been a Hall of Fame designer, but his wife Alice made sure the course is friendly for women who love the game, too.
The course’s clubhouse is an early-1900s mansion built by Tom Taggart, former French Lick Springs Hotel owner, as a gift to his son. The carriage house serves as a fully equipped pro shop. The rustic Pete Dye Pavilion can host large outings and events.
