Golfweek Gives Props to French Lick's Dynamic Duo

The Pete Dye Course at French LickThe new award-winning Pete Dye course at French Lick Resort in Southern Indiana has been selected the No. 1 course in the state of Indiana in Golfweek's 2010 "Best You Can Play, State-by-State" rankings. In addition, the resort's historic Donald Ross course was ranked No. 3 on the state list.

For the Dye Course, this latest accolade follows a long list of national awards that the new course has received since it opened in 2009 further solidifying it as one of America's greatest golf courses and the best golf in the State of Indiana.

Golfweek's course evaluators submit ballots grading courses all over the country on a 10-point scale to determine the country's finest golf courses. Raters take into account factors such as routing of the course, feature shaping, greens, variety and memorable holes, conditioning, maintenance, and landscape management.

The Pete Dye course is regarded as one of the most breathtaking and exciting 18 holes of golf in the country. The course was carefully carved on a dramatic hilltop offering a variety of elevation changes, rugged and dramatic terrain, narrow fairways and challenging bunkers. There are spectacular views from every hole, some that stretch for over 40 miles.

Complimenting the award-winning Pete Dye course, is the recently restored Donald Ross course, a parkland gem meandering up and down the rolling hills a few miles from the main resort. The wonderful routing of the holes take full advantage of the many elevation points for the classic Ross greens which slope dramatically from back to front. It is one of only two public Ross courses in the state of Indiana and played host to the 1924 PGA Championship won by Walter Hagen.

The PGA of America will also play its PGA Professional National Championship on both the Pete Dye and Donald Ross courses June 27-30.
