I didn't even know where Graham Memorial was until you put it in the other post and I had to look it up. Haven't played Hill or Linza Graham, either. Didn't some holes change at Freeman? I haven't played it since then, either.

All but L Graham and Patoka. Favorite is close between BT and FLP. FLP probably has it because of the sheer beauty and difficulty of the course. It's kinda odd but the hot rounds for both courses are very close (-11 and -13, respectively).

Linza Graham is a 9 hole pitch and putt course that just appeared one day last year. It is only a few minutes off the highway if you're passing by, but I recall only 2 holes over 200 feet there.

Harry Hill is a 9 hole course that was built last year. The Lanham's designed it and run a league out there on Tuesday's I believe. It's a fun course and I enjoyed playing it.

Graham Memorial is a nice 18 hole course Greenwell designed. They had a tournament out there the first couple years after the course went in the ground, but it seems to have died of. It's great that the people in that area have a course, but if you're trying to get there from Louisville it takes a while since it's so far off the highway.

Haven't played harry hill or patoka yet. Really want to play patoka because I've heard its an awesome course. Some like it more than Severin Lang and in my opinion that's the best course in the Louisville area

No way would i travel close to 50 miles just to play a 9 hole course. Don't even think i would hit it up if i was passing by either. I feel i have played all of the greater Louisville courses including Jims

Not sure when they close the toll booth, but I'm pretty sure during the winter you don't have to pay the $5 to get in at Patoka.

Don't knock 9 hole courses...I haven't played linza or harry hill yet but plan to

Some 9 holers are great, some have dual pads which practically make them 18 hole layouts

When I played courses around southern indy I played 5 nine holers some were beginners, some were okay, and one was awesome in some ways better then a few of the 18 holers I played

They usually stop collecting the gate fee after the Halloween weekends, generally early November. If the weather is nice though you might fine them out on a weekend on occasion, but after Halloween I would say it closes (along with the Marina's).

If your in the area hit me up, I live on the other side of the lake, so its about 15 mins away and I have a pass.

I don't know I'd go as far as saying Patoka Lake is better than Sevrien because it's a beast in it's own right. I am partial to it, as I should be, but comparing courses has never been my thing! Give it a try, hopefully there will be another course inside the gates of Patoka soon, WITH WATER!!

One of the nicest courses I've played is in Mason, Ohio (right by Kings Island,) and it's a 9-hole course.

Any news on Paoli, or were you a part of that?

Oh I would. Patoka is in my top 5 courses, probably my favorite in the area. It's fun factor is off the charts.
Definitely worth the trip the trip from Louisville, Evansville, Indy...
(No offense to Martin & Adam of course - Seviren is great in its own right. I just feel that strongly about Patoka.)

Also, Mike... your comment of "I wouldn't travel 50 miles for a 9 hole" comment really irked me. A great course is a great course, regardless of the number of holes.

There are very few courses I won't play. The main reasons I won't play a course are that it is in a less than desirable part of town or there are other, better courses in that town. The fact of the matter is, regardless if it is small 9 hole beginner course or a 5+ course complex, someone has put a lot of time into that course, from the very beginning getting it approved, to the clearing and install, and all the way past into the upkeep. In a lot of smaller communities, that little 9 hole course is all they have and someone is very proud of that course.

So don't crap on someone's hard work because it's not up to your "18 hole standards".

I highly recommend this course as well. Thick rough makes it challenge, variety of shots, and some pretty scenes. I will play this course anytime I'm in the area.


I have not played Harry Hill but have heard a lot of great things about it. Being nine holes I would try to play more than one round to make the drive worthwhile.

The number of holes makes no difference to me because I love the sport.

I agree Job, especially with the first sentence. I've never run across a course I won't play. Sure, some courses might not be as challenging or as long as others, but if I have time and am in the area, I'll never willing skip a course.

I play Linza Graham 3-4 times a week because it's the only course within 30+ miles from me. I usually don't even take my bag just and over and understable roc and a putter. The parks department in scottsburg keeps the park clean and well maintained and there are enough low ceiling trees to make the course fun. There are tee signs but no teepads and nice dga baskets. You can easily play the holes 50-100ft longer than they are. I change the holes every time I play it and have a good time doing it. I'd recommend it to anyone passing through or just wanting to get out and play something different. I'm also currently talking to the parks administrator about adding 9 holes because there is plenty of room not being used. If there was more course traffic we could easily have another 18 hole course in scottsburg.

Adam

That's good to hear. It looks like there is enough room in the woods around the park to easily accommodate another 9 holes. If there's anything the club can do to help out just let us know.

That whole area of the state is in need of courses. From Louisville up to about Indianapolis there's nothing except Linza Graham in Scottsburg and a little 5-hole course in Rushville east of I-65 until you get up to around I-70. Then you cross the state line and Ohio has tons of courses.

Indian springs is nice. For 12 bucks you play 18 holes and drive a golf cart.

Adam

I just played Indian Springs (http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=1383) for the first time a few weeks ago. What a great course, it's like a mini Old English! It has a great mixture of long par 4+ holes and also some birdieable par 3 holes. Definitely worth checking out if you're passing by.

Yeah, but I'm talking about the southeastern part of the state. There's nothing.
