French Lick Resort – French Lick, Ind.
Indiana’s historic French Lick Resort has
long been considered among the top golf destinations in the Midwest. Adding to that legacy,
French Lick was recently recognized by Golf
Digest as one of the best resorts and courses
The resort was selected among the Best Golf
Resorts in the Midwest, and most recently,
its Pete Dye and Donald Ross courses were
ranked on the Golf Digest list of America’s 100
Greatest Public Courses. The Pete Dye Course
moved up two spots to No. 17 on the list and
The Donald Ross Course was ranked No. 99.
The recognitions came largely in part to
Indiana philanthropists Bill and Gayle Cook,
French Lick Springs and the West Baden
Springs, which have been fully restored to their
original sophistication and luxury.
Golf has been an integral part of this resort
for more than 100 years, as The Donald Ross
Course was constructed in 1917. In 2009,
Pete Dye created a visually stunning masterpiece, which has quickly become one of the
most highly acclaimed courses in the country.
It’s located on a dramatic hilltop, which is one
of the highest points in the state of Indiana
and offers panoramic views of the Hoosier
National Forest that stretch as far as 40 miles.
As for the historic Ross course, it underwent
a $4.6 million restoration project in recent
years that brought the course back to Ross’
original genius plans.
