On and Off the Course: Covered bridges, travel and golf

It’s Covered Bridge Festival time here in the Wabash Valley. Some visitors would probably rather spend some of these gorgeous fall days on a golf course than walking around shopping in the endless line of tents and displays at Mansfield and Bridgeton. Oh, the food is enticing, and some of the crafts are interesting, but you’re really only here because you’re appeasing somebody special in your life! Well, for future reference, I have found some golf courses that include covered bridges in their layouts. So if someone you know and love really needs to see some more covered bridges, you could suggest some of these places:

n Fuzzy Zoeller’s Covered Bridge Golf Club — Nestled in the hills of Southern Indiana, near Floyds Knobs, the Covered Bridge Golf Club features five lakes, a meandering creek, and of course, a Covered Bridge. Paved cart paths run throughout the course connecting all tees, and carts can be driven anywhere on the Zoysia grass fairways. It is a par 72 course with four separate tees, allowing you to match the course to your ability. The “Fuzzy” tees have a course rating of 74 and a slope of 132, with a distance of 7,068 yards. Or you could choose the back tees, total distance 6,453 yards with a rating of 70.9 and a slope of 129. The middle tees of 5,943 yards are sloped/rated at 69.0/122 for men and 74.6/129 for women. The forward tees, which play to 4957 yards, are at 64.0/108 for men and 68.8/114 for women. Stay and play packages are available with rates of $86 on weekdays or $96 on weekends (per person, based on double occupancy), which includes 18 holes of golf with a cart, one night hotel accommodations and breakfast. The package can be enhanced by adding another 18 holes of golf at Champions Pointe Golf Club, designed by Fuzzy Zoeller and Clyde Johnston, in Henryville, Indiana, for an additional $50 per person. For more information on packages or to make reservations, call 812- 246-3131.
