Default Lemon Lake

What's the draw here? I attempted to play all 4 courses in July and due to their lack of signs and navigability I didn't play any of them. They're ranked high, and from afar they seem to be great, but what's the deal with this park?

Signs and navigability are more than adequate at LL.

I'm guessing you were there during the setup for Worlds when they had altered layouts for that tournament. In that case, yes, the layouts could be a bit confusing and had temporary signage.

That explains it. I need to get back over there.

How are the courses? Which is better than the others?

The courses are very solid. Gold/Silver is by far the best, but both red and blue aren't too far behind. Blue has more of an open feel (while still having several wooded holes) and greater distances than the Red course (which is a bit more technical).

White is a fun warm-up/cool-down round without being completely mindless.

If you make the trip back out, playing Gold is the priority in my opinion.

Hope that helps!

Hey Jukeshoe, you seem to know the area pretty well. We are thinking about heading to LL for a summer fling. Mostly a spoiled bunch, with women in tow. Any nice resort type places near here. Golf resort, ski resort.... Someplace with restaurants on site, a nice pool to wash of the sun tan lotion and off.

Nice? No.

And this is the Midwest. There are no ski resorts around these parts - only a couple of bunny hills.

In northwestern Indiana?! BWUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

You really aren't going to find much in the way of resorts per se in the area however I think I see what you are after and I am going to recommend snooping around the Lake Michigan shoreline. I would start in New Buffalo and work your way north. If you don't mind spending a lot of $$$ there are all sorts of rental houses in the area with plenty of Lake to rinse off. Lemon Lake is roughly an hour or so from New Buffalo.

You guys are a crack up. The rental idea on the big lake is a good suggestion Dave.

DTRG's pretty spot on with the New Buffalo and northward tip, but that's Michigan, not Indiana.
