The Elbel Park Golf Course is a mature course that opened in 1963 and, according to TJ Mannen -- Elbel Park Golf Pro, offers the "best greens in Michiana!" And the course scenery is very pleasing as well!
"Every hole is distinct and different," states Mannen, "with twists, turns, tree-lined doglegs, around marshlands, and elevation changes." The lushness of Elbel Park's rolling wooded land is made all the more apparent thanks to a reconfiguration of the irrigation system a few years ago.
Elbel Park Golf Course offers a challenge to players of all levels. The Par-72 layout measures 6,700 yards from the Gold Tees, 6,300 from the Blues, 6,100 from the Whites and 5,750 from the Reds. Though the greens putt fast and true, they will also hold a good approach shot.
New bunkers are being added, with others being repositioned. So either hone those accuracy skills or sharpen your sand wedge swing!
Consistency is an important key to the success of Elbel Park with Mannen being only the fourth Pro since 1963.
Mannen literally grew up on Elbel Park Golf Course -- his mother worked and managed various areas of Elbel Park's operation. He began golfing at the tender age of 8, later playing for Ball State University in 1995-1996. In 1997, Mannen turned pro and in 2003 joined the Hooters Pro Circuit (Florida).
