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 Valparaiso, Indiana, make for the perfect foursome. Tee up some fun for a fantastic Valparaiso golf trip.

Forest Park Golf Course

Nestled in the heart of Valparaiso, Forest Park has long been a golfer’s favorite place to play.

This scenic and well-priced golf course would be a perfect fit for your Valparaiso golf trip!

Ironwood Brewing Co.

Ironwood beers are best described as “true-to-style” with an occasional twist. The beers are all generally malt-forward but balanced with a nice variety of hops. Local ingredients used in the brewing process include Indiana malted barley and corn, honey, and hops. Ironwood Brewing Company is where craft beer fans can meet for stimulating conversation and a couple of excellent brews.

49er Drive-in Theatre
