Etched into the highest elevation Indiana, this Pete Dye-designed behemoth is breathtakingly beautiful. Judging by the rave reviews it garnered during its rookie season (voted by Golf Digest and Golf Magazine as the Best New Course in 2009), the course is an instant classic.

The Pete Dye Golf Course at French Lick is perched atop the bounding countryside adjacent to the luxurious French Lick Resort, overlooking the Hoosier National Forest. Having built golf courses all over the world including great coastal sites, this course arguably could be considered Dye’s best inland site. Golfers will enjoy a 40-mile panoramic view in every direction.

Ron Whitten, Golf Digest's senior editor of architecture, described the Dye course as, "a stark, treeless, wind-swept concoction by octogenarian Pete Dye, the Gandolf wizard of course design."

This 18-hole championship course that stretches to a mammoth 8,102 yards from the championship gold tees is already considerd on of the best courses Indiana has to offer, and anticipates hosting premier events and tournaments in the near future.

In June 2010, the PGA of America will play its PGA Professional National Championship on the Pete Dye layout. The National Championship, featuring a nationwide field of 312 PGA Professionals, will utilize the par-70, 7,000-yard Donald Ross Course and the par-72, 7,400-yard Pete Dye Course. The championship's final two rounds will be conducted on The Pete Dye Course.

The Thomas Taggart turn-of-the-century mansion serves as the course’s clubhouse and full service pro shop. Taggart was the famed owner of the French Lick Springs Hotel and Chairman of the National Democratic Party. The mansion occupies the area’s highest point at almost 1,000 feet above sea level.
