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.

Christmas Lake Golf Course -- Improvements made
Review by: Joe Golf Digest rated Christmas Lake GC as a four-star course. A few years ago it was rated one of Indiana's most challenging public courses. Among local golfers it has been well known that the rough and greens were in need of work. Extensive renovation has been completed over the past two years to remedy this. Until now carts had to stay on paths or fairways at all times. The front nine winds through Christmas Lake Village, a huge gated housing community. The back nine climbs up and down forested terrain where it is not atypical to have a family of deer attempting to play through your foursome. America's first theme park, Holiday World, is only two miles away.
