In Volume 3 of The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, Tom Doak published that:
“One of Ross’s boldest designs, this resort course features deep bunkers and an audacious set of greens, laid out across rolling topography punctuated by several ravines. It has all the makings of a cult classic: some contend that you can get away with a few too many loose drives, but we don’t see it that way as the greens provide such a strong defense. There is not one, but a pair of 230-yard “short” holes, which must have been truly fearsome in 1932 when Walter Hagen won the PGA Championship here. If French Lick enjoyed year-round golf traffic like Pinehurst, you would never stop hearing about it.”
The Donald Ross Course at the French Lick Resort received a score of 7 out of 10 from one of Tom Doak’s co-authors.
