Arrowhead Golf Course, Greenfield
Players praise Arrowhead Golf Course for its exceptional turf and fair price point. The front nine is longer and more open than the back nine, tempting you to grip it and rip it. The tree lined back nine offers relaxing shade and seclusion. While you are here, stop by The Mug, a restaurant that has brought farm-fresh food with a drive-in experience. Serving incredible burgers, dogs, sandwiches and more, they dub it “farm-to-curb” dining. Book a tee time.
Battle Ground Golf Club, Battle Ground
This course near Purdue University and West Lafayette features mature trees, large sand bunkers and receptive grass. The open feel of the course gives golfers a chance to recover from every shot. Battle Ground Golf Club is located in a historic community near the site of the 1811 Battle of Tippecanoe. Today, visitors to Battle Ground tour the Tippecanoe Battlefield Museum and Park and howl at Wolf Park wildlife facility. Book a tee time.
Cambridge Golf Course, Evansville
Set on 170 acres of rolling southern Indiana farm land, this Tim Liddy design is one of the most beautiful around. Cambridge Golf Course boasts multiple tees, target landing areas, in-play lakes, formidable grass mounds, demanding bunkers and finely sculpted bent grass. After a day on the links, try your luck at Tropicana Evansville. This casino boasts blackjack, slots and poker inside a lux entertainment complex with gourmet dining and two hotels. Book a tee time.
Walnut Creek Golf Complex, Marion
Two challenging courses are located side by side, so you can play one 18-hole course and walk over to the next. The 1970’s layout at Walnut Creek offers long tees, large greens and elevation changes.

After a full day of golf, take a short drive down the highway to Converse, where an amazing BBQ joint has revitalized this small town. Book a tee time.
