Cool Lake Golf Club: Water Hazards Aplenty in Lebanon

Lebanon, Indiana is home to a surprising number and range of golf courses, more than there usually is for a town of its size. The town is located a few miles northwest of Indianapolis, just off the highway, and the Indiana golf courses in the town make for some pretty good day trips from Indianapolis. While The Trophy Club, another Lebanon golf course, is a championship level course that is meant for serious golf enthusiasts, those a little less familiar with the links or in the mood for a more casual affair should check out Cool Lake Golf Club, a smaller, more laid back course that offers affordable rates and a fun but challenging golfing experience.

Cool Lake Golf Club is an eighteen hole course filled with multiple water hazards, much more so than a lot of other Indiana golf courses. Most of the holes at Cool Lake Golf Club are fairly straight forward, but that’s not to say they’re without challenges. Water is a major obstacle at Cool Lake Golf Club; almost half of the holes require the player to vault their ball over an expanse of water, be it the creek that runs through the course or Cool Lake itself, which borders the west side of the first hole. Players must tee off over the creek on a total of three of the holes, and many other greens can’t be reached without a well-placed drive over a pond or creek.

Even so, all skill levels will be able to enjoy Cool Lake Golf Club. Indianapolis sports tourists will be happy to find that there are four different tees to make games more even. Each tee upgrades the challenge significantly; the course is a little over 6,000 yards from the blue tees and only 4,950 yards from the shortest tees, the red. The thousand yard difference can really level the playing field for mismatched golfers, so you shouldn’t be afraid that your Indianapolis children will be outweighed by the course at Cool Lake Golf Club.

If you’d like to get involved with other players in the Lebanon area, why not join the Cool Lake Golf Club Men’s Club? The Men’s Club at this Indianapolis attraction sponsors lots of different tournaments throughout the year, each one providing a great opportunity to show off your golf skills. Tournaments include the Couples Tournament, a Texas Scramble, a Hot Ball tournament, a Two-Man Pinehurst Alternate Shot tournament, and even a Club Championship to prove who the best of the best is. Tournaments at Cool Lake Golf Club are excellent ways to get involved with Lebanon society, so if you live in the area, you should definitely consider joining up.

If you don’t feel like you’re good enough to participate in a tournament yet, consider signing up for one of the many classes offered at Cool Lake Golf Club. The Lebanon business offers lots of different packages for aspiring golfers. Personal lessons can help you develop your individual swing, and the available clinics will teach you basics of putting, driving, posture, and ball control in a friendly group environment. Cool Lake Golf Club even runs the Cool Lake Junior Golf Camp, a great training option for students at Indianapolis schools or Lebanon schools who’d like to bone up on their golf game.

Though it may not be as well known as the other famous course in Lebanon, The Trophy Club, Cool Lake Golf Club can be a fun, challenging place for a round of golf. The myriad water hazards along the course make the eighteen holes at once difficult and beautiful, and the four different tees allow players of all skill levels to get in on the fun. The Men’s Club at Cool Lake Golf Club is well worth the cost for the tournaments alone, and the affordable clinics and classes at Cool Lake Golf Club are a great resource for any Lebanon golfer. If you’re not afraid of getting wet, a round of golf at Cool Lake Golf Club might be just the Saturday afternoon you’re looking for.
