Golf Courses

A golf course known as the Hill Course was added in 1917 and was designed by Donald Ross. It hosted the 1924 PGA Championship won by Walter Hagen and also has hosted the 1959 and 1960 LPGA Championship and was the home of the Midwest Amateur from the 1930s through the 1950s. In 2006-07, the course was restored to its original specifications in cooperation with the Donald Ross Society. The PGA returned to French Lick in June 2010 for the PGA Professional National Championship.

Pete Dye is a renowned golf course designer who has built exceptional courses for over 50 years. The Pete Dye Golf Course at French Lick opened in June, 2009. Mount Airie, Thomas Taggart's 1928 Colonial-style home, was purchased and transformed into a clubhouse and pro shop which overlooks much of the course.

The Valley Links adjacent to the hotel and casino was originally designed as an 18-hole course by Tom Bendelow and has been altered to become a 9-hole course as a result of the casino construction.

Famous quotes containing the words courses and/or golf:

    The inconveniences and horrors of the pox are perfectly well known to every one; but still the disease flourishes and spreads. Several million people were killed in a recent war and half the world ruined; but we all busily go on in courses that make another event of the same sort inevitable. Experientia docet? Experientia doesn’t.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    A golf course is nothing but a pool room moved outdoors.
    Frank Butler (1890–1967)
