When it comes to enjoying a round of golf in Hendricks County, it’s a lot like my golf swing…there are lots of ways (…and directions) to go, but – regardless of where you play – it’s an experience I’m sure you’ll enjoy. And, whether you’re a scratch golfer who’s looking to lower your handicap or a weekend player seeking a little variety in the courses you visit, Hendricks County features lots of affordable options – including packages that allow you to get away to a hotel and relax after you finish your round. As someone who’s always enjoyed the game of golf, what I like most about the courses in Hendricks County is the fact that there is something genuinely unique that differentiates one layout from another. In addition to the design – and how a course is laid out – to its maturity or setting, there is a place to play for golfers of every skill level. In fact, when my wife, Sharon and I were dating, we often enjoyed playing a round of golf together at Friendswood Golf Course in Camby. Nowadays, it’s a course I enjoying playing with my two sons as they continue to learn the game. What’s more, all of the courses are easy to find and most are located close to area hotels, restaurants and shopping – making it easy for you and your family or friends to enjoy themselves whenever you visit Hendricks County. Much like my drives – and, sadly, sometimes even my putting stroke -- I’m not always sure where I’ll wind up when it's time to hit the links, but I can tell you that Hendricks County is one of my favorite destinations for getting in a round of golf.
