Warren Sr. The course features a beautiful traditional layout deserving of the Notre Dame name and was designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore.

General Manager & Head Pro John Foster describes Warren as "one of the most impeccably maintained courses in the Midwest." And we couldn't agree more! Walk-mowed greens, hand-raked bunkers, laser-aligned mow lines and blown free grass clippings throughout the entire golf course provide outstanding play conditions all season long. The traditional layout reminiscent of the Donald Ross and Alistair Mackenzie designs of the 20's and 30's, make for a memorable golfing experience.
In 2005, all 95 bunkers were re-drained, re-lined and re-sanded with some of the softest imported sand found on any course in Michiana. An intermediate cut (rye) was added to all holes in 2007. As one would expect, you will find everything you need at Warren including some of the newest golf carts on the market with GPS, a driving range, practice chipping and putting areas, club rental, an impressive Pro Shop, club cleaning, on course drinks/snacks, pull carts, locker rooms with showers and a 19th hole lounge to complete a wonderful golf experience.
