This resort, which is a favorite of basketball legend Larry Bird, features two regulation eighteen hole courses. The Springs Country Club Course was built on hilly terrain, so expect many uneven lies. A stream flows through several holes, so shot accuracy is important at times. The greens are undulating, and the fairways are plush. The Springs Valley Golf Links Course was built in a valley on flat terrain. This course is highlighted by the lake coming into play on a couple of holes. The fairways are wide open, and the greens are small and fast. Walter Hagen won the 1924 PGA Championship here. "Golf Digest" rated this course as the 10th "Best Public Course" in the state for 1996. The United States School of Golf has a school located at the resort. For more information call (800) 354-7415.

Disregard the comments above--play this course!, Aug 11, 2006
|Whoever wrote the comments above forgot to mention that this course is one of the best examples of Donald Ross' design genius still around. (for more, see golfclubatlas.com). Very unusual course that will rock the world of many players--severly sloped, multitier greens are the main feature. Ever played a 230-yard par three w/ a triple tier green? You will here. How about a two-tiered green with the split from front to back? With the renovation of the French Lick Hotel, this course is also being re-developed and should be a terrific attraction by itself. Will be one of the best courses in the Mid-west.|
