The Donald Ross Course at French Lick Resort

Course Description

This classic course designed by iconic architect Donald Ross, underwent a $5 million restoration in collaboration with the Donald Ross Society. 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. There is an extensive irrigation system that covers the 60 acres of course and seven foot wide cart paths.


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—perfect for après golf or anytime.
