In The News ... Erskine Park Golf Club, South Bend, Indiana

Opened on June 27, 1925; Erskine Park Golf Club is a model of traditional golf located within the City limits of South Bend, Indiana. The subtle, rolling terrain with tree-lined fairways and some strategically located sandtraps are exactly what has been considered "golf" for the past century.

Most new courses seem to build so many obstacles to overcome that the average golfer tends to forget the sport is fun. Erskine Park, on the other hand, strikes the perfect mix of tradition and fun. An example of this are the "birdie-able" Par-4's (6 of them between 274 and 354 yards) and a 452-yard Par-5 (though the last half of it is uphill).

Yet there are challenges as well. Although the course features five Par-3's, three of these Par-3's are over 200 yards and another is 184 yards! Then there's the Signature Hole of Erskine Park; the 603-yard Par-5 10th hole. With 2 good opening shots on this monster of a hole, the average golfer will still be hitting a Five or a Six Iron to the green. Par here is a very good score.

Head Golf Pro Dave Firestone says the future of courses like Erskine is brighter than many others. He explains "With the economy the way it currently is, the public golf courses with lower fee structures will handle it better than the country clubs and upscale, higher daily fee courses."

When asked about the biggest changes he's seen since his start in the golf industry in 1978, Firestone says the equipment upgrades are the obvious choice, but adds "I think the Internet is having the biggest effect." The availability of equipment purchases, information, and scheduling tee times on-line were a few of the items he mentions.

The land Erskine Park Golf Club is located on was donated to the City of South Bend by the late A. R. Erskine who was CEO of Studebaker Automotive at the time. The agreement was that the City would continue to own and maintain the facility.

Another piece of local trivia is that former UCLA basketball coach John Wooden recorded a double-eagle on the 504-yard Par-5 16th Hole.

Erskine Park offers the golfer access to golf carts, GPS, pull carts, club rental, practice putting & chipping greens, on-course drinks/snacks, locker rooms, and a Pro Shop with retail items. Firestone also offers lessons at a very reasonable cost. Should you have an Outing or a League in mind, Erskine handles both admirably and often.

The course is in very good condition all season long and the very accommodating greens fees make Erskine Park Golf Club a great place to play ... frequently!

"My local course ... as a novice golfer, the front nine gives me hope but the back nine, starting with the monster Par 5, saps my will to live! Of course that's my fault not the course. The staff is helpful and friendly just watch out for league nights and the horror of horrors: the high school team! Be prepared to wait a long time if you get stuck behind the kids."

South Bend, Indiana, a little more ...

Return to the Top

South Bend is a city in St. Joseph County.

The first settlements in the current South Bend area were established as fur trading posts. The first westerner to make permanent settlement was Pierre Frieschutz Navarre in 1820. Navarre arrived on behalf of the American Fur Company. His home was not far from what would become downtown South Bend. Alexis Coquillard, another agent of the American Fur Company, passed through South Bend in 1823 and returned in 1824 with his family to make it his home. At the time, the post was known as Big St. Joseph Station. In 1827, Lathrop Minor Talyor established a post for Samuel Hanna and Company. The area soon became known as St. Joseph's, Indiana as recorded in the Samuel Hanna and Company records. By 1829, the town was growing, with Coquillard and Taylor emerging as leaders. The town applied for a post office, and Taylor was named postmaster later that year. The town was designated as Southold, Allen County, Indiana. The following year, the name of the city was changed to South Bend. This change was in order to ease confusion as several other communities called Southold existed at the time.

In 1831 South Bend was laid out as the county seat and as one of the four original townships of St. Joseph County. Soon after, design began on what would become the town of South Bend.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 39.1 square miles, of which, 38.7 square miles of it is land and 0.4 square miles of it (1.10%) is water.
