Visit Indiana Golf is highlighting the best 18 golf holes from 18 different public golf courses across the Hoosier State. Hole #16 of Indiana’s Signature 18 is situated on The Warren Golf Course at Notre Dame in South Bend. South Bend is located along the St. Joseph River in northern Indiana.
The Warren Golf Course is a links-style course, comfortably nestled on 250 wooded acres. Expertly preserved as a wildlife habitat, the course received the coveted Audubon International certification. Lush fescue fairways, softly rolling terrain and the golden dome in the background make the course a beauty to behold. The red fescue, heather and other native grasses that adorn the course are thoughtfully trimmed back for maximum playability. Four sets of tee boxes mean players of all skill levels can get the most of their round at Warren.
Although the 345-yard par 4 16th hole is the shortest par 4 on this golf course, your success depends on the ability to make the correct club choice for your tee shot. Think backwards on this hole. The length of the approach shot that you want into the green will dictate what length you must hit your tee shot. There’s another wrinkle on this hole: it has a two-tiered green. It’s as tough as it is beautiful.
