Forest Park Golf Course -- Brazil, the Armpit of Indiana
Review by: Karl Norman The front 9 is decent enough. 1 is long and straight with the ditch there to hold up a good drive. If you lay it up in front of the ditch, you will have a long mid-iron shot at the green which is on a plateau. The greens are not too fast so keeping the ball up there is not difficult if you are a lower handicap player. Hole 2 is an insanely short par 3 with about a 30 ft drop in elevation to the green. Good chance for a birdie if you get a good tee shot. Hole 3 is a straight short par 4 with the OOB on the left. A great tee shot will let you putt for eagle. Hole 4 is kind of tough. It is hard to see the ditch from the tee and there is a dog leg that starts right where the ditch crosses the fairway. There is a bunker right in front of the green with a wall of dirt that is hard to hit out of. Hole 5 is a flat, straight par 3 but hard to birdie. Hole 6 is long and straight. Two strong shots to get on a green that is kind of tricky. Hole 7 is long and crosses a ditch long ways. You can play either side of the ditch but sticking to the right might be the best move. Hole 8 is a short par 4 and an easy chance at a birdie. Hole 9 has a slight dogleg but it is long. The green is raised up a few feet so its a little tough to land on with a long shot. The back is just bad.

Turkey Run Golf Club -- What do want for practically nothing?
Review by: D. Bogey Browne ***+ (3 & 1/2 stars actually) Fun course. Typical country course conditions, but with better than avg. scenery. Relaxing 19th hole. Friendly helpful folks. Shade and soil make for tough maintenance, just roll-it-over and you'll enjoy the day. Greens range from mild to tough, with a median of kind of tough. One little par 4, with just about a 90 degree, exit stage left dogleg. Club selection off the tee, determines whether you'll have a shot to the green. Rarely slow play, but you can hunt mushrooms (April/May) while waiting on the group ahead of you, an added bonus! Plenty of wildlife, especially early mornings, and evenings. State parks a Nature Conservancy, a nice camping/fishing lake and a major state reservoir all within 20 miles. Lots of Amish folks/farms too, if you like to visit previous century farming practices, or want to learn how to grow a really good producing vegetable garden. Be prepared to ford creeks, as some crossings lack a covered bridge.
