Brutish Pete Dye Course at French Lick Resort offers Indiana golfers a stern test

FRENCH LICK, Ind. -- According to basically every American golf publication, the Pete Dye Course at French Lick Resort was the best new course of 2009. More than 2 million cubic yards of earth were moved in the creation of the golf course, which hurdles and dips across a landscape that, according to Dye, "was as severe as I've ever worked." The result is an eponymous 8,102-yard brute with a rating and slope of 80.0/148 from the tips. Golfers who find themselves in the newly resurgent French Lick area will need to pony up some serious cash for the pleasure of being thrashed around by the course that is arguably Dye's most difficult track (greens fees run as high as $275). But the design, challenge, and views are so marvelous that the splurge is recommended for all devoted golf fans. Evans Scholars caddies are required, but are worth every penny (and a good cause).
