The Valley Links Course is a nine-hole, fully walkable conversion of the 18-hole Tom Bendelow design that was original to French Lick Springs Hotel. This par-36 course maintains the park-like atmosphere of the Bendelow course with rolling fairways, Scottish-style fescue grasses and strategically placed bunkers. Experienced golfers are certain to take notice of the championship tee length of nearly 3,500 yards.
Valley Links gives golfers of all skill levels and ages a fun and challenging place to play, and was redesigned with families in mind. Designed specifically for children and beginners, French Lick Resort partnered with U.S. Kids Golf, the premier junior golf company in the country, to develop a family golf course. The second of its kind in Indiana, there are two sets of tee markers: Level 1 measures 1,100 yards and the yellow tees measure 1,900 yards. The course also includes two par-3s, five par-4s and two par-5s to provide a fun challenge to juniors and beginners alike.
