Belterra Casino Resort made the commitment--from the day the vision for the property took shape--to build a world-class golf course and facility. It began with a natural asset…fertile farmland along the Ohio River in southeastern Indiana. The next step was to acquire the services of renowned, master golf architect Tom
Fazio has designed a beautiful and challenging championship level golf course that stretches out over 7,000 yards. The fairways meander through five newly created lakes that are lined with more than 2,200 native-specimen trees introduced to the site during the development of the course. Naturally contoured elevation differences of up to 65 feet have been sculpted along the course to accentuate the picturesque views of Indiana ridges, the Ohio River, and Log Lick Creek.
The course plays to a par 71 with the 543-yard par five 4th being the longest. The most challenging hole is perhaps the par four 5th, with a long second shot parallel to a lake which protects the green.
Fazio has designed four levels of play to accommodate just about any player from beginner to competitive tournament play.
Tees, fairways, and greens are all bentgrass surrounded by bluegrass roughs. Large areas of colorful wildflowers have been planted throughout the course.
The golfer's experience begins in the large pro shop and locker room area conveniently located in the west wing of the hotel. From there, players can take advantage of unlimited practice balls to warm-up at the practice facility, which includes a full-length driving range, putting green, and practice bunkers.
The Tom Fazio course at Belterra will define championship golf in this region and green fees include cart and unlimited practice balls. The course is available for play year-round during daylight hours all days of the week Although it is open to the public, Belterra Hotel guests will have preferential access to tee-times on the course.
Tournaments are welcome and food and beverage carts will provide service to the course. Banquet facilities are available inside the hotel. Events can be arranged for as few as a foursome up to an l8-hole double shotgun tournament.
