Select Local Merchants

The Pete Dye Golf Trail links seven courses throughput Indiana and reaches its northern terminus at the 18-hole Mystic Hills Golf Club, a challenging course set amongst wetlands and woodlands, presenting elements of links and parkland layouts. Here, the golf course design skills that made Pete Dye a household name manifest through fairways rolling through native prairie grasses and sand bunkers standing sentry to each green—difficult obstacles for golfers accustomed to only hitting into fairways with bumpers. Furthermore, players should be wary of getting too comfortable with playing the links-style front nine, as the back nine presents a more traditional layout stocked with trees and other organic hazards.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 71 course
  • Total length of 6,780 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 73 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 133 from the back tees
  • Five sets of tees per hole

Putt-Putt Fun Center woos club wielders with pintsize golf challenges, video arcades, and snack stands. Savvy putters can contest 18 challenging holes and three courses with their iron legs, coaxing balls into holes with golf claps and trails of breadcrumbs. Between games, guests vie for prizes at the video arcade and guzzle soda-fountain suds or practice faux swordfights with tall cups of frozen treats from the snackatorium.

[[m:####Juday Creek Golf Course

Instead of easing into a well-earned retirement after years in the restaurant business, Mike and Linda Rogers decided to embark on a new challenge: building a golf course. In 1989, they opened Juday Creek Golf Course, whose bent-grass fairways strike enough of a balance between challenging and accessible to have won the Indiana Golf Course Owners Association’s 2009 award for Indiana Golf Course of the Year.

Now managed by the couple’s daughter Michelle Wittig, the course’s emerald expanses continue to compel swingers of all stripes to lace up their cleated shoes and argyle garter belts. A journey across the course’s thirteen holes brings one face-to-face with manifold water hazards, many of which stand directly in the path to the putting green. There are 56 sand traps that raise the stakes of each game even higher, making for tough shots and partners who would rather build sandcastles instead of continuing on. Before or after games, golfers can take lessons and receive personal feedback from a pair of skilled instructors, one of whom is a PGA professional.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,940 yards
  • Course rating of 73.3
  • Slope rating of 134
  • Four tee options

Designed in 1960 by John Ellis, the Tuckaway Golf Club course is located 40 miles from downtown and features 6,225 yards of greens, fairways, and sand traps. Though only one par 5 exists on the front nine, the back nine challenges players to make up for lost scoring opportunities with three par 5s and cups not covered with cellophane. Gently sloping fairways bob and weave through beautifully forested acreage, bending around majestic pines and stately oak trees and opening up onto small greens. Prior to tee times, players can practice their hacks on the driving range's 20 grass tees or work on greenside feel at the chipping and pitching green.

Golf with friends is the best kind of bonding. There's nothing like being out in the open air, hearing the wind blow through the beautiful old trees lining the fairways, and refusing to grant your compadres a mulligan. The satisfaction of a well-played hole is amplified by the amusement you get from your partner's three-shot spectacle in the woodsy rough. Today's Groupon gets you and a friend 18 holes with cart at River Oaks Golf Course for $40 (up to a $88 value, depending on the day you go). Your Groupon is good for any time Monday through Friday and after noon on weekends.

Lincoln Oaks Golf Course challenges long- and short-gamers who navigate its 6,186 yards of bentgrass fairways and relatively small greens. Built in 1927, Lincoln Oaks stood as one of four original courses at the Lincolnshire Country Club, resplendent with a layout designed by renowned course architect Tom Bendelow, who also lent his fairway-carving skills to all three courses at Medinah Country Club and his own immaculate backyard. Since then, it has gone public and undergone extensive renovations, including new cart paths and reshaped tees and fairways. The site of a PGA Tour event in the 1960s, the course has hosted U.S. Open Qualifying Tournaments throughout the years as well as multiple golf cart drag races. Before taking to the links, clubbers can spruce up swing mechanics at Lincoln Oaks' range and practice facility.

Located approximately 35 minutes from downtown, Lincoln Oaks is a convenient cruise away from the urban bustle. Upon completing their round, duffers can kick back in the comfort of Oaks Bar and Grill, where icy beverages, piping-hot pub fare, and three flat-screen televisions caddy your cravings for post-putting leisure time without badgering you about your botched lay-up.

Course at a Glance:

  • Designed by Tom Bendelow
  • 18-hole, par 71 course
  • Length of 6,186 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 69.0 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 120 from the farthest tees
  • Three tee options
