All good advice above.

White is a fun but somewhat throw-awayish course. Definitely the easiest and shortest. Expect Gold to take it out of you a bit unless you're used to long, fairly punishing courses. Red is a nice mix of the styles available at LL, defintely my fav (although I still haven't played Blue yet).

Rogers Lakewood in Valpo is certainly worth the visit. Not as difficult as Gold (by a long shot) but still very very difficult, with a great mix of hole styles and terrain.

The funny thing about the White course is many feel it's not worthy of playing but it usually humbles even the best players in terms of what they score versus what they think they should score. As course pro Brian Cummings says, "If you think it's so easy, show me your scorecard after playing it." Many won't.

(It's excellent for Super Class.)

It's certainly easier looking than it plays, but good players should still shoot well under par. Heck, I shot a +6 on it first time through, and I'm a fairly terrible player having a below-average round, putting wise.

Yeah its pretty much worth it to play all of the above. Lemon and Rogers are both great so if you're able to, play them all.

IMHO, the 24 holes @ Rogers Lakewood in Valpo are better than 3 of the courses at Lemon Lake;
I dislike white, red is OK, blue is good while silver/gold are very world class challenging.
