French Lick has two 18 hole layouts, the original by Donald Ross, a new one by Pete Dye which is now open, and a nine hole practice facility that was whittled down from an original Tom Bendelow design. The Ross course opened in 1917 by Donald Ross and was the venue for the 1924 PGA Championship won by Walter Hagen. The course was restored several years ago, maintaining a lot of the Ross features including, the general links-type open layout, with deep green-side bunkers and severely undulating and small greens. There's only 35 bunkers, but they're well placed with flat bottoms and deep faces. The greens were expanded a bit to their original rectangular shape. The course plays to 7,000 yards, par 70, and is a stern test with a course rating of 71.8. The Dye course is a full 8,100 yards from the tips, but with a total of five sets of tees. It's a walkable course with the greens and tee boxes reasonably close. It's routed over on one of Indiana’s highest elevation points with narrow fairways, well bunkered, with lakes, and wide ranging greens with forty-mile views of the Indiana countryside. From the middle tees it's 6,115 yards, 70.6/130 course/slope.
