Spending the day on the links and the evening enjoying locally crafted brews makes for an excellent combination. These two golf courses and two breweries in Evansville, Indiana, make for the perfect foursome. Tee up some fun for an awesome Evansville golf trip!
Multiple tees, target landing areas, in-play lakes, formidable grass mounds, demanding bunkers, and finely sculpted bent grass greens highlight this challenging 7,200 yards Scottish-style links course. There is a risk/reward design philosophy throughout the venue, making it a great choice for your Evansville golf trip. The Cambridge layout places a premium on accurate tee shots, leaving the player better angles into the smallish greens. Cambridge’s par 4’s and 5’s present numerous playing options, shots values, and a perfect balance of risk and reward, while the par 3’s require precise shot-making. With its manicured open spaces and large expanses of green, the course adds beauty and form to the Cambridge Village Community.

Their menu is full of classic American family-style dinners and pies for dessert.

On your Evansville golf trip, you can visit the LST-325, which served in World War II on the beaches of Normandy, as well as in the invasions of Sicily and Salerno.

The ship is open for tours seasonally throughout the year in her home port. Those at the memorial would love to welcome you aboard the LST-325!
