Introducing Hamilton County's mythical 18 hole course made up from public access golf courses Par 5's!
Hole 1 | "Diabolical Dogleg" | 18th at Prairie View, Carmel
Off the tee there is a 90 degree corner to turn, but Sycamores left and bunker sand right guard the bend. Cut it too close and a good day's score is shot to...well, you know. A smart layup to the creek fronting the green can yield a closing birdie.
Hole 2 | "The Equalizer" | 15th at River Glen, Fishers
Two controlled shots are needed to an approach over a creek. A white knuckler, but a well-played second strike can offer a chance for an eagle. Leaving the green, one has an equal opportunity to surge ahead or get behind.
Hole 3 | "Saint Patrick" | 9th at Purgatory, Noblesville
The clubhouse chimneys provide the tee target for this best as 3-shot hole. A well bunkered green falls away. Playing patient along the left side can make opponents green with envy.
Hole 4 | "Classic Conclusion" | 18th at Wood Wind, Westfield
Heading home to a classic clubhouse backdrop, landing zone bunkers test the player's shots along the way (see green complex). Regardless of score, the end of the round is an unforgettable finish.
Hole 5 | "The Adventurer" | 12th at Bear Slide, Cicero
The tee shot has a large landing area and then offers two roads. The low runs along a lake with a better angle to the green. The high is dryer but tougher on the third shot. The road less traveled usually gets a birdie. But which one is it?
Hole 6 | "Most Unique" | 15th at Brickyard Crossing, Indianapolis
Located at the heart of Indy car racing, Brickyard Crossing's signature feature is the four holes located inside the oval track at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. On the 15th hole, the water hazard starts on the right side of the fairway and crosses the hole midway through before finishing on the left side of the hole. This Indianapolis golf course is included in the Hamilton County Stay & Play packages.
Hole 7 | "Temptation" | 12th at Plum Creek, Carmel
Direction and discretion are needed off the tee with left and right trouble in view before a golfer even thinks about going for green in two. It is more of the same on the third shot to a small, water and bunker protected, undulating green.
Hole 8 | "The Gryphon" | 18th at Purgatory, Noblesville
It is a classic risk reward with a wishbone fairway. But go over its center valley, blistered with bunkers, and a down slope kicks your ball to just a mid iron from the green. Close attention to pin locations can yield a closing birdie.
Hole 9 | "Sneaky Seventh" | 7th at Prairie View, Carmel
After a generous open fairway, careful thought is required for the second shot. The hole deceptively waits for a pulled left or pushed right hit by a careless player. The golfer's final challenge is to a well bunkered, long narrow green tucked by the White River.
Hole 10 | "Accuracy a Must" | 4th is at The Fort, Indianapolis
The demanding, long par four doesn't play as long as the 438-yard number on the scorecard but the drive lands in a blind, downhill area that generally slopes to the left. This Indianapolis golf course is included in the Hamilton County Stay & Play packages.
Hole 11 | "Risk-Reward" | 8th at Brookshire, Carmel
The prime real estate on this hole is the fairway's right side. Accurate and long tee shots have a chance to be on in two. Left is tree trouble and costly. As per usual in Carmel, it's location, location, location.
Hole 12 | "Albatross" | 5th on The Lakes at Ironwood, Fishers
A crossing creek is the first obstacle off the tee and then water bends down the right side of the hole. A sharp right turn of the fairway can present an angle for up-and-over-the-corner tee shot. What follows is a mid-iron chance for a duce and perhaps the two shot glory of an albatross.
Hole 13 | "Take It From The Top" | 1st at Forest Park, Noblesville
In 1927, it was the first hole ever played in the county. A scenic tee box encourages a fade to start this reachable dogleg. A miss left or right to a small saucer green is short sided in kidney bean traps.
Hole 14 | "Eagles Landing" | 4th at Gray Eagle, Fishers
The best tee shots land adjacent to a unique wood carving of the American Eagle just off the fairway (see picture). The next ball flight should favor the left side, avoiding creek trouble on the right side of its two tier elevated green.
Hole 15 | "Dead Man's Curve" | 18th at Stony Creek, Noblesville
The tee shot faces an avenue of trees and a blunt dead end that starts the 90 degree second shot uphill. Get the right distance off the tee and it's a clear but long shot to massive green. Go off this route and a battered 18th hole score is found in the wreckage.
Hole 16 | "Caveat Emptor" | 6th on The Ridge at Ironwood, Fishers
This short Par 5 is reachable in two. But beware of buying into the thrill of a big tee shot too early. It can be costly if overlooking the second shot to a narrow, well bunkered green flanked by a tree and OB. Say, who knew there were Latin scholars at Ironwood?
Hole 17 | "Short-Not So Sweet" | 1st on The Central at Fox Prairie, Noblesville
While benign in total yardage, a creek cuts the fairway halfway out and a hazard right can catch a tee shot. Up ahead, a cluster of thick trees seem out of play until a "thonk" is heard. A bogey or worse can sour golfer's start.
Hole 18 | "Loner" | 18th on The North at Pebble Brook, Noblesville
The only par 5 on the back nine challenges a tee shot and a right side Lilly pond splashed up against the green makes slicers and faders jumpy as a box of frogs.
