The Donald Ross Course at French Lick

Opening for the 2021 season on Friday, March 12.
(Temporarily closed March 16-19 for course maintenance.)


This classic course designed by iconic architect Donald Ross underwent a $5 million restoration in 2007. When the project was completed, 80 of Ross’ trademark bunkers with flat bottoms and deep, gnarly faces were once again in place along with expanded, square or rectangular shaped greens that severely undulate. Thirty-five of these bunkers are original to the course that Ross constructed in 1917. The course is a par 70 and plays to 7,000 yards. The Donald Ross course has been rated the No. 2 public course in Indiana by GolfWeek every year since 2011.


Hagen’s Club House Restaurant is the original clubhouse. When weather permits, the best seat in the house is on the veranda. Inside or out, this authentic turn-of-the-last-century structure includes a pro shop and a relaxing atmosphere for a cocktail or bite to eat — perfect for after a round or anytime.
