Whether your goal is to be the next Tiger Woods or just have some fun, golfing is an incredibly popular sport. Indiana golf lodgings offer you the opportunity to play till your arms fall off.
Indiana Golf Lodgings
When you think of Indiana, your mind might not immediately go to golf. Many people consider this state to be the home of racing with the Indy 500 held here in Indianapolis, but it's also a great midwestern getaway for golf enthusiasts. With many different golf courses and lodgings located here, chances are you'll find just the right place for your golf vacation.
A quick look at Indiana Traveler's website lists many different golf courses in many different towns and cities. While these are all options for the golf vacationer, it's often better to combine your golf course and resort in one place. One of the largest of the Indiana golf lodgings is Swan Lake, located in Plymouth, Indiana. This resort is home to the Indiana National Golf Club and the US Golf Academy. The Indiana National Golf Club houses two championship golf courses, and the Golf Academy has lessons and other activities available for the golfer. Swan Lake is a beautiful building, picturesque and perfect for weddings and meetings as well as vacations. There are 92 guest rooms, four cottages and two cabins available as lodgings, and other amenities include spas and pools for those times you're not on the links.
A second of the many Indiana golf lodgings available is the Eagle Pointe Golf Resort just 10 minutes south of Bloomington, Indiana. This resort offers a 6700 yard championship golf course, a pro shop, driving range and a PGA professional on staff. The lodgings here are also first rate; they are all condos with one to four bedrooms each, and they include use of the pools and other amenities. This resort also has spectacular views of the Monroe Reservoir, Indiana's largest lake.
One last look at the Indiana golf lodgings brings us to the French Lick Springs Resort and Casino. This resort, located in French Lick, Indiana, combines all of the excitement of a casino and spa retreat with great golfing. Under renovation until November 2006, the hotel will house 442 guest rooms and be opulent and impressive. Located on the resort property is the Donald Ross Course, which held many national and regional tournaments, and will in August 2006 be reopened after being renovated and restored.
There are many different places in the country to golf, but choosing one of the Indiana golf lodgings will allow you not only a golfing vacation, but also a great stay at a great resort. Centrally located in the Midwest United States, these lodgings are a great place for anyone in the US to come and relax, and get in a few rounds of golf while you're there.
