In The News ... Briar Leaf Golf Club, La Porte, Indiana, a MichianaGolf.com 3-Star Certified Course

Just over an hour from Downtown Chicago and 15 minutes from Lake Michigan sits the Briar Leaf Golf Club. This La Porte, Indiana course is one of Michiana's gems. From course condition to greens fee rates to amenities, Briar Leaf is very hard to beat.

Head Pro Jay Williams says "This land used to be a farm. It's got a mix of gently rolling terrain, some flat land, and outlined with trees. We've added over 200 trees to the course." With the extra trees, water on 9 holes, and other obstacles, Williams adds "This is a thinking-man's course."

Early in your round, the thinking definitely begins. Hole # 3 is a relatively short Par-4 that ends at a small island green ... appropriately named "Alcatraz." To escape # 3 with a birdie, you better put your drive where your approach shot will have very comfortable yardage, or you could easily walk off with a 7 or worse!

Briar Leaf is a fair test with water and bunkers in locations that quality shots can avoid. But it doesn't end there. While many of the holes require accurate, almost target-type shots to score well, several holes also allow you to "open it up." So, bring all your clubs, you'll need them!

Briar Leaf has 4 sets of Tees:

  • Green
  • 5,057 yards
  • Gold
  • 5,955 yards
  • Silver
  • 6,375 yards
  • Black
  • 6,765 yards

    There is a formal Grounds Maintenance Program, and it shows. Briar Leaf is in excellent condition all season long. Over the past several years, all equipment has been upgraded and bunkers revamped.

    The Briar Leaf Amenities list is a long one: Lockers / Showers, Golf Carts, Club Rental, Club Cleaning, Practice Putting & Chipping Greens, two Driving Ranges -- with one being HEATED so players can practice year 'round, Pro Shop & Retail Shop, and On-Course Drinks / Snacks / Restrooms. Affordable golf lessons are also available from three Instructors.

    Speaking of amenities, Williams has had the pleasure of playing the course at St. Andrews on 3 occasions which served as the inspiration for the newly completed St. Andrews Clubroom. Truly a unique amenity that Course Members will certainly enjoy.

    Another unique feature of Briar Leaf is that it doesn't house the usual "19th Hole" Pub. Instead, Portofino's Grill, attached to the Clubhouse, is an upscale restaurant featuring great food and service along with both casual and fine dining options. Call the Pro Shop or Portofino's for more details.

    Briar Leaf Golf Club is a true golfing experience.

    As one can imagine, Briar Leaf is an excellent location to host your next Outing or Fundraiser. Speak to Williams or his Staff about your plans and thoughts.

    The Briar Leaf Golf Club is also a MichianaGolf.com "Offers for Golfers" participant ... do you have your Pass yet?
