The Donald Ross Course at French Lick Resort

The Donald Ross Course at French Lick Resort

This classic course designed by iconic architect Donald Ross, underwent a $5 million restoration. 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 #2 public in Indiana 2008-2016 by Golf Week and was among the 100 greatest through 2015.


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.
