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.

Tippecanoe Country Club -- Resort Area Gem
Review by: Steve Tippe is an outstanding resort area course located in Monticello, Indiana near Indiana Beach Resort. The new head pro and superintendent have made vast improvements over the last few years so the course and shop are always in great shape. Multiple tees allow each player to decide how much they want to take on, and the course takes in the best of the local attraction, Lake Shafer, as a few holes play adjacent to and with views of the lake. The members are always gracious and the staff is helpful. It's a great bargain.
