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.

Morningstar Golf Club -- Fairway to Heaven?
Review by: Dan Wearstler If you dreamed of playing on a golf course that is filled with tree-lined fairways, Morningstar Golf Course will be your cup of tea. However, while a beautiful landscape may be thrilling to some, these beautiful yet narrow fairways will likely prove frustrating to those golfers who drive their ball a great distance, but can't seem to keep it on the straight and narrow. Nevertheless, for those of us who are able to drive straight, but have developed an inferiority complex watching our long drive partners hit the heck out of their drives, this is your chance to get even. By keeping your drive on the fairway you give yourself a better than even chance of beating your long drive cousin at this particular golf course. If you do find yourself off the fairways, be prepared to find the roughs to be really rough with long grass and the trees acting as swaying barriers to the greens. While the greens lacked the quality of other courses (the reason for the rating of 4), the overall beauty of this course make for a fun, yet challenging experience.
