[caption id="attachment_6205" align="aligncenter" ] Golfing at Purdue![/caption] Today is SPRING!! Spring in Indiana means the snow is gone, the sun is out and golf season is here. Anyone feel like shouting halleluiah? We do! Let's rejoice by grabbing our golf clubs and taking a swing at life by heading to one of our 162 holes of golf. My husband, Marc, shares the best thing about spring is getting out on the course with his buddies for a friendly yet competitive game of golf. He said the local courses in Lafayette-West Lafayette are challenging yet diverse as they allow for beginners through advanced golfers. He would rate himself as an intermediate golfer and is happy playing at all of the courses. Many of the courses have a wide range of amenities from GPS systems in golf carts, PGA instruction, pro shops, driving ranges and banquet facilities.

Three easy steps and you have booked a fun, golf getaway. First, golfers choose the courses where they want to golf. Battle Ground Golf Club, Coyote Crossing, Harrison Hills Golf & Country Club and the Kampen Course are all participating golf courses that offer great rates for booking a “stay and play” package. The second step is picking the hotel that fits the individual or group’s needs. Golfers can choose from the following hotels: Best Western, Courtyard by Marriott, Days Inn & Suites, Four Points by Sheraton, Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn City Centre, Homewood Suites, and Purdue Union Club Hotel. The last and final step is calling the hotel of choice and making the reservation. They will assist in booking tee times for all participants. Just remember the three step rule; pick your course, pick your hotel, call the hotel to book! We like to keep things simple and easy in Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana, to make your visit memorable and fun. Get out and golf!! It's a fun sport that is great for all ages.
