French Lick Springs Resort, Donald Ross Course

Less relentless than its Pete Dye counterpart, yet as equally rewarding is the resort's Donald Ross course. Laid out by the master in 1920 and draped over open, rolling farmland, it played host to the 1924 PGA Championship, won by Walter Hagen. Lee Schmidt of Schmidt-Curley Design recently restored the layout's classic flat-bottom bunkers and ingeniously contoured greens.
